We have to admit that this documentary really touched us. André’s words could have been our words and thoughts. On April 30, 2013, which was Queen Beatrix’ 75th birthday, Abdication Day, and at the same time the inauguration of our new King and Queen, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima. Ruud and Ineke were in Amsterdam and there were festivities all over. It was a day never to forget. Freezing cold, but heart warming.If you are interested to see more about that day, with our personal experiences, it is on our website under Previous items, find the year 2013, between January and June, Or click HERE.
