Its strange that over here in the UK where we have probably the most famous and well known royal family in the world, we don't have any days to celebrate them. Not even a bank holiday on the Queen's official birthday! Its a shame that, but I can understand as a lot of people don't take to the monarchy any more.
What is the view of the majority of the Dutch population towards their royal family? I remember reading somewhere that when Queen Juliana stepped down, there were riots in the Netherlands from people who wanted the royal family abolished. Is that true? Do people still feel that way now?
