Dutch inauguration online
Having just returned from a trip (to Charlotte and New York) and already tired, I'm not sure I'm quite up to getting up by 3 AM tomorrow to watch the abdication of Queen Beatrix and accession of King Willem-Alexander live, though festivities will be continuing into the European night/North American afternoon. For those inclined to do so, however, the Dutch royal YouTube channel will stream the events live. Unfortunately I do not believe there will be any live coverage on US TV. I am sure many wonderful pictures and videos will be available for viewing later in the day as the people of the Kingdom of the Netherlands celebrate Queen Beatrix's 33 years of service and their first King in 123 years.
