And now we have a King

Yesterday morning queen Beatrix abdicated the throne after she reigned the Netherlands for 33 years. Her eldest son, now king Willem-Alexander, was inaugurated yesterday in the afternoon.
He is married to princess Maxima, who was born in Argentina. Together they have 3 daughters. The eldest is now the Princess of Oranje; the crownprincess.
Here are some images of the events of the last days.
Monday evening they went to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam for a state banquet, with all the royal quests.
