Charles and Camilla lead royal guests in Netherlands
Why does everyone assume that Prince Charles is anxious for his mother to abdicate? He has been the most outspoken and creative Prince of Wales in history and some of what he does and says as Prince he could not do and say as King. The British Monarchy is not the Dutch Monarchy and abdication is not customary in Britain. Nevertheless, splendid pictures and video in this Mail article on Queen Beatrix's last dinner as Queen in the Rijksmuseum (which I just visited last month) on the eve of her abdication, with royal guests from all over the world.
