Hanze Asks: Queen Beatrix abdicates

After 33 years of reign, Queen Beatrix will abdicate next April, 30. This is an historic event because in the last 123 years, just queens have reigned. Thereby, her son Willem-Alexander, of 45 years old, will become King of Holland. From now on, instead of Queen’s Day, there will be King’s Day. What do the people think of the abdication? Do youngsters really care about monarchy?
