Four days? That's it?

You would think that someone dynamic and savvy would be brought in, but then, the Windsors did accept Kate in the end, so why not. Since HM will get money from the Crown Estates, maybe she can encourage the government to send the taxpayers a tax refund. That would be a good bonus and surely the Queen can afford it.

This would be a perfect chance to turn the Olympics and Jubilee into a massive moneymaking festival that could bring in serious coin, but they aren't. Not just trinkets and souveniers, but stuff like fairs, carnivals, circuses, so many things to get Brits involved and truly be a part of it. It's like they refuse to even bother trying, but want someone else to dirty their hands off of helping them adapt or smooth the way for them. But then, whne someone does, they mess it up.

HM should take six to ten months off and figure out where she wants to go after her landmark.

Koninginnedag ( pronunciation (help·info)) or Queen's Day is a national holiday in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Celebrated on 30 April (the 29th if the 30th falls on a Sunday), Koninginnedag is Queen Beatrix's official birthday. Though Queen Beatrix was born on 31 January, the holiday is observed on 30 April as it was the birthday of her mother and predecessor, Juliana. Many of the traditional activities are held outside, and observing the

 The Queen & her team choose a region/city and make a tour around the stands and festivities that have been organised for her. The members of the DRF participate in those festivities.Another thing is that when disaster strikes she will always make a statement and visit the victims or goes to the place where it happened.I may not be a monarchist , but i do have alot of respect for her and even for Maxima .

It's nice to see the RF in that nation take charge and turn something celebrating her into something that the nation can participate in beyond just a few days off.

Hmm the golden oak leaves and honey combs on the border are to much for me, it makes the whole motive to busy.
It's ok for a big plate, but to much for a fragile teacup and saucer.
