(DOCUMENTARY) Beatrix: The Queen Who Gave Up the Crown.

Here is the Channel 5 documentary entitled, Beatrix: The Queen Who Gave Up the Crown.

The documentary examines the life and reign of Beatrix, who reigned as queen from 1980 until her abdication in 2013, looking at the key to her popularity as a monarch. The documentary also examines controversial moments, from public opposition over her choice of husband to the riots on the day she ascended to the Dutch throne.


Day Two of the Dutch Visit to Germany

Late this afternoon in Berlin, Germany, Her Majesty Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands along with T.R.H.s Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and Crown Princess Maxima of the Netherlands, attended a “…circus workshop for children…”  (Daylife)

The royal trio along with Bettina Wulff, wife of the German President, seemed to enjoy the day as they watched the myriad of performers doing their super cool circus stuff (I don’t know how to describe it, sorry.)  🙂  Anyway, prior to the circus event the royal trio had a chance to visit the Brandenburg Gate, then take a lovely boat tour along the river Spree with the mayor of Berlin, Klaus Wowereit.  Finally, it was lunch time!

All in all it seems to have been a great day for all!  🙂

Later on this evening Her Majesty Queen Beatrix and the Crown Princely couple will attend a classical music concert.  Photos can be viewed here.
