In a sensible move, Queen Beatrix of Holland, has decided to abdicate and hand over the throne to her son, Prince Willem-Alexander, before she starts "kicking up tulips!"
In her abdication speech she also advised British Queen Elizabeth to do the same because Prince Charles may end up "kicking roses" before he's allowed to take over and if he "kicked the bucket" too early the UK would have William as king and that would not do because he's not 85 yet.
Another reason for Queen Beatrix resigning is her desire to smoke a joint or two in the peace and quiet of her palace back garden; very weedy place. If she remained as queen she would never have had the possibility of doing what 75% of her folk do and being very near her folk, feels that the time has come to show a bit of public solidarity.
When Prince Willem-Alexander takes over his wife, Argentinian heiress to a certain massacre in a well known footbal ground in Buenos Aires, Maxima, has sworn to pardon all of those nasty generals who ordered the massacre and has even invited her father to the crowning ceremony because by then he would have received a Dutch royal pardon; burp!
