2011 Koninginnedag (Queen’s Day) in the Netherlands

The Koninginnedag (Queen’s Day) is always a fantastic event for avid royal watchers, and more importantly for the people of the Netherlands and this year did not disappoint.

This national holiday,held on April 30, honors Her Majesty Queen Beatrix’s birthday and this year the day was held at in the cities of Thorn and Weert, Netherlands.  The entire Dutch royal family including — of course — Her Majesty Queen Beatrix.  The queen mingled with the crowd of well-wishers and local dignitaries.  As usual there were lots of fun games, laughter, tons of food, and in the end it seems as if everyone — including the people of Thorn and Weert — had a blast.
