A King for the first time in living memory.

There has just been a very special message from Queen Beatrix this evening at 19.00 CET.

She has announced her abucation in favour of her son Willem-Alexander.

We haven't had a King of the Netherlands since 1909. Both of our last two monarchs have abdicated Wilhelmina in 1948, and Juliana in 1980.


I personally think that a monarchy has no place in a modern state, it is a out dated concept. I do know that it is purely ceremonial, but I'm convinced that it's a throw back to a different time.

I have never been a royalist, I bare the royal family no ill will, but I do wish we were a republic.
