+JMJ+ Happy Birthday to Queen Beatrix! =D (Sully, do Dutch monarchs traditionally celebrate their birthdays on the day they were crowned? If so, what an interesting tradition!)
April 30 was the birthday of Beatrix mother Juliana (our former (and late) queen). When Beatrix was crowned she said that in honor of her mother she would celebrate her birthday on the 30th of april. This also was inspired i think by the fact that on april 30th the weather is much nicer than at th end of january.
Beetje aan de late kant, maar ik hoop dat jouw koninginnendag top was!!
interesting note on the queen's birthday. lovely way to remember her mother.
