Is Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands Planning to Abdicate?
Queen Wilhelmina abdicated in 1948, at the age of 68, so that her daughter, Juliana, could become Queen of the Netherlands. In 1980, Juliana abdicated at the age of 71, so that her daughter, Beatrix, could become Queen. Beatrix will be 72 This Year.
Do you think that she will abdicate any time soon, so that her son, Willem-Alexander, can become King? If she does, it will be the first time that the Netherlands has had a King since 1890.
Her mother and grandmother have set something of a tradition... but whether Beatrix will follow it is anybody's guess. It has to be said that Wilhelmina was Queen for a VERY long time - 58 years, including both World Wars, having become Queen at the age of 10. Perhaps it's no wonder she felt ready to hand over the throne and have a quiet retirement, which she did. Prince Willem-Alexander married comparatively late, and maybe Beatrix will stay on for a while or until death to enable him to enjoy his young family. Nobody knows.
