Her Majesty 

Her Majesty

A battle is raging at the heart of our kingdom and it is the monarchy itself that is at stake. It is the day of the State Opening of Parliament. A year has passed since the death of the love of her life, Prince Claus. Beatrix has doubts about everything. About the monarchy, about the trustworthiness of her sons and, finally, about herself. Tensions mount when the Prime Minister wants last-minute changes to the text of Beatrix’s Budget Day speech. Beatrix resists. She doesn’t want to be the woman who dances to someone else’s tune any longer. Parliament watches her with bated breath. Will she protect our kingdom? Tradition, love, loss, doubt, intrigue, power and betrayal. Finally, we meet the woman behind Queen Beatrix.
