Despite having lived outside the Netherlands for the past decade, I got totally emotional watching our royal family. I even got a bit homesick, something that has never happened to me before! If you are intetested you can read all about it on my blog: http://living-in-an-expat-bubble. blogspot.com
I had tears in my eyes several times today, watching Beatrix and Willem-Alexander together as the document was going round the room being signed they were both so happy and Maxima looked like she was trying very hard not to cry.
Again when Willem-Alexander spoke in the church, even though my Dutch is pretty bad I still understood enough to make me want to cry.
I thought it was a lovely day starting with Beatrix signing the document for him to become king, to the actual investiture, I tears in my eyes.
They seem a very close family and Beatrix appeared so happy for her son, I loved it when they were on the balcony and Queen Maxima held Princess Beatrix's hand it was so sweet and lovely to see a ryal family showing so much emotion.
