Yesterday, Monday 28 Januari, our Queen Beatrix announced abdication
and will hand over reign to her son Prince Willem-Alexander on 30 April.
Half the country's inhabitants (about 7 miljon people) saw her abdication speech.
She was a popular Queen and inspiring to illustrate, because of her hairdress and hats.
Here's a drawing I published last September
Over two days she will be 75 years old. I have made a special birthday illustration,
which I will post on her birthday, the 31th :-)
