Already for weeks there are (special) magazines focusing on the event, several books have been published. There are tv-programs and a real interview. My mother, who got two books from me […]

The state visit of Queen Juliana to Indonesia 1971

On 9 March 2020 King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands arrived in Indonesia for a state visit, that will end on 13 March 2020.
