Willem -Alexander now King of The Netherlands
By a simple signature from his mother, Queen Beatrix, under an abdication declaration, Willem-Alexander became King of the Netherlands in the Amsterdam Royal Dam Palace today at approximately 10.35 hr AM local time.
Thereafter the new King will be inaugurated by swearing to be true and loyal to the Dutch Constitution before both Houses (Chambers) of Dutch Parliament.
Thereafter the two houses of Dutch Parliament will swear their loyalty to the King.
Even Big Brother Google blesses the new King and Queen with the above picture, albeit the Alt tag is a bit confusing:
Queensday 2013: Best Whishes to King Willem-Alexander!
Actually there is no Queensday today. It is Abdication and hence Inauguration Day today.
Tooting my own Horn
On my significant other blog I’ve featured 100 chairs in celebration of Inauguration Day.
