On October 28, 2011, H.M. Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, H.R.H. Prince Willem-Alexander of Oranje, and H.R.H. Princess Maxima of the Netherlands began their first full day of activities in Oranjestad, Aruba.

This morning the royal trio did a walkabout in the lovely Caribbean country where they were greeted by thousands of locals waving flags and singing.  Later in the afternoon, they will meet with local dignitaries as well as attend a reception in their honor.
