This must be moved: you can't have 'queen' in lowercase in such a context. And following a recent discussion, I think 'Beatrix of the Netherlands' is the right form. Ro Thorpe 17:14, 4 August 2009 (UTC) - or perhaps it's 'Beatrix (Netherlands)'...

Yes, I'm pretty sure that one of the two latter is correct, without Queen, and with "the" uncapitalized. Hayford Peirce 18:39, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
Was she Princess Beatrix, or did she select the name on taking the throne? If she was also a princess of the same name, "Beatrix of the Netherlands" would seem more apt. Howard C. Berkowitz 18:47, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
I haven't any clue how to call these kinds of articles, and I don't mind what they are called (as long as "Queen Beatrix" is a redirect). Beatrix was formally Princess before her crowning (thank you Derek, the word "crowning" did not pop up on my mind) and now she is formally "Koningin der Nederlanden" (Queen of the Netherlands). I only do this article because of the Write-a-Thon, I hardly know anything about our Royal family. --Paul Wormer 05:19, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

OK, time to move it - Ro Thorpe 01:00, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
