14th April 2011, Comments 1 comment

On the third day of their four-day state visit to Germany, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima are visiting Dresden.

The Dutch royals will attend an official reception in the Frauenkirche which like much of the city was bombed by the Allies during World War II. The church remained a ruin long after the war, but was rebuilt in 2005. The queen, prince and princess will also take a walk along other bombsites in the city which have been rebuild. The walk will end in the Grünes Gewölbe Green Vault in Dresden Castle which holds the largest collection of treasures in Europe.

In the afternoon, the royals will visit solar panel manufacturers and attend a seminar on green energy. The day will end with a visit to a Dance Academy.

    What a douche!!! A crowd of people in her own country die in a violent shoot out and she's strolling around Germany reminding them of war. Could it get any worse than this???? A billionaire thanks to all her oil endeavors you would think she could donate some money towards setting up some therapists for those who were terrorized by this tragedy . terrible beast she is!
