It must be a little odd to be Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands. On the one hand, you’re the queen, and that’s probably pretty nice. On the other hand, it is the Netherlands. And the thing about being queen is, it’s not like you can dream of one day getting a better job. You can’t think to yourself, “Maybe if I went back to grad school, I could…” or, “You know, it’s not too late for me to become a firefighter.” Nope. It’s queen, queen, queen, right up ’till the day you die.
