So the Queen of the Netherlands officially abdicated her position today, and her son, the now-King Willem-Alexander, took her place. That means that these three little girls, literally sitting here in thrones with their grandmother the has-been Queen, are the first, second, and third in line for the Dutch throne. (Whatever the Dutch Queen job entails, it can’t be much more than cracking champagne bottles on cruise ships, which is pretty much my dream job.) The biggest one, Princess Catharina-Amalia, is now the Princess of Orange, and is the first woman in history to hold that title in her own right.
Crap, I don’t know what any of this means, only that there are three little girls who I hadn’t heard of last night but am now extremely jealous of.
