The smallest girl, the one on the right ... she has an evil little twinkle in her eyes. I bet she is a handful. I wonder what it's like growing up knowing that one day you'll be in charge of a country.

Can you imagine, though, growing up knowing that someday it will be your reponsibility to rule the country?!

Congratulations Klasien! They look like a great family! I wish England's Queen would give her Son a chance. 60 years is long enough. Poor Prince Charles will be too old to be King if Queen Elizabeth won't leave. Maybe she doesn't trust him. And I know the country doesn't want Camilla for queen. Oh well.
Queen Beatrice has a nice family, and I hope she enjoys her retirement.

What a beautiful family! They had a clip on our local news station about it, I was VERY surprised! They barely report on happenings within our little province, let alone something from another country lol But the video clips they aired were beautiful, made me wish I was there :)

I find this so very fascinating! Monarchies have ruled the world for years...and to me, it seems like such an ancient tradition. And yet here you are posting a picture of a current royal family that seems incredibly loved. It's amazing to me. I love learning and reading about royalty. Thanks for sharing!! and Congratulations!

I heard about this on the news today! I'm very excited for you and the rest of the people in your country! Your royal family is beautiful! I have a friend who was born somewhere in that region whose first name is Willem. He now goes by Wim.

Hello Klasien:
I watched quite a bit yesterday and some from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, as they also were in celebration for the new King.
Wonderful looking family. All Hail the King.
