The theme of queen Beatrix’ Christmas speech this year is ‘trust’, the state information service said on Monday.
As every year, the pre-recorded speech will be broadcast on December 25 at 13.00 hours on television, radio and internet.
It is not clear where Beatrix will spend Christmas this year. Her oldest son Willem-Alexander and his family are in Argentina to celebrate the holiday with princess Máxima’s family.
On Sunday, Beatrix visited the traditional Carré circus in Amsterdam with her other daughters-in-law, Mabel and Laurentien, and their children.
