The present Queen (Beatrix) set up this day to thank her mother (former Queen/princess Juliana who died a few years ago) for all the things she did for our Queen. The Queens mother had her birthday on 30 April. The Queen will go to 2 cities each year. She celebrate the above fact with the people of the Netherlands. Most of the relatives of the Queen are coming this day (most sister and their children).

The Dutch are getting crazy this day: dressed up orange, drinking...

In 2009 the Queen & her family visited my hometown Apeldoorn.
