I don't think so, actually, because that's only when she would have had a husband who would have been king, right? Because I thought Queen Elisabeth can't retire, she needs to be queen until she dies, right? (I do think that that's a bit wrong, when someone has been queen or king for a few decades, she/he should be able to say: okay I feel like I'm too old now, go ahead child of mine, I'm going to retire now...)
Though I would have liked it to call Beatrix something like that, 'Queen mum' sounds nice
Anyway, I've seen our Koningin Maxima and Koning Willem-Alexander yesterday! It was pretty cool. They were sitting in a bus and they were nearly hitting us because the street was too small and Maxima looked very concerned at us, but in the end, when she saw we were okay she at us. It was nice.
