A Royal Orange Celebration!
"Her Majesty Queen Beatrix of the Kingdom of the Netherlands will abdicate on April 30, 2013. For decades, the birthdays of Queen Beatrix and her late mother, Juliana, have been celebrated on this day, Queen's Day. This year, Queen Beatrix will be succeeded by Prince Willem-Alexander.
