The abdication and the investiture

I didn’t take the day off for the Cambridge wedding, but I’m enough of a royal watcher still to take today off at work and spend the day in front of the television set. I’m fortunate enough as a royal watcher to have the transmission going on in two channels, with both Trond Norén Isaksen commenting for NRK and Kjell Arne Totland for TV2 Nyhetskanalen. Royal experts on both channels.

 

I’ve chosen to go with NRK for this – if only for the lack of commercials.

And now the royal family have appeared, and Beatrix is getting ready to sign her own abdication.

I’d say it is a once in a lifetime occasion, but as the Prince of Wales would argue (he was also present at the investiture of Beatrix) in the Netherlands it happens more frequently than that.
