Postcard from the Netherlands
This is the first postcard with a picture of Royal family for me. So thanks truck loads for Diana for sending me this card.
Well, this postcard shows us the picture of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands with the background of the Netherlands’ flag. Here I put a little story about Queen Beatrix. She was born on January 31, 1938 at the Soestdijk Palace in Baarn, Netherlands. She was the eldest daughter of Crown Princess Juliana of the Netherlands and Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld. On 30 April 1980, Beatrix became Queen of the Netherlands when her mother abdicated. If she steps down, her first son (Prince Willem Alexander) will take over her position and become King Willem Alexander.
