    April 30 HOLIDAY the Queen's Birthday-Koninginnedag

    Koninginnedag

    April 30, 2013 will be the last celebration of the Queen's Day.
    Queen Beatrix will turn over the reign to her son Prince William.

    questions?
    Will he then become King or remain Prince?
    Will his birthday become a national holiday?

    Crown Prince Willem Alexander will become King of the Netherlands April 30.

    As long as he reigns, the national holiday will be on his birthday, April 27 (from next year on)

    I was supposed to be in Amsterdam for the crowning, but had to cancel for health reasons..
