    QUEEN JULIANA OF THE NETHERLANDS CELEBRATED HER 57TH BIRTHDAY TODAY (SATURDAY) AND THE TRADITIONAL FESTIVITIES WERE HELD AT THE ROYAL PALACE AT SOESTDIJK.

    CROWN PRINCESS BEATRIX AND HER HUSBAND PRINCE KLAUS VON AMSBERG, RECENTLY RETURNED FROM THEIR HONEYMOON, STOOD ON THE STEPS OF THE ROYAL PALACE WITH QUEEN JULIANA AND PRINCE BERNHARD TO WATCH THE CEREMONIES.

    A TRADITIONAL FEATURE OF THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY IS THE CONGRATULATIONS CONVEYED BY THOUSANDS OF DUTCHMEN FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE AS THEY WALK PAST THE QUEEN AND HER FAMILY AT SOESTDIJK.

    IT IS ALWAYS A HAPPY AND INFORMAL CELEBRATION AND ON SATURDAY, AS USUAL, CHILDREN WERE PROMINENT IN BRINGING THEIR BIRTHDAY GREETINGS. PEOPLE FROM MANY OTHER COUNTRIES, DOMICILED IN HOLLAND, ALSO WENT TO THE ROYAL PALACE TO HONOUR QUEEN JULIANA.

    IN A TELEVISION ADDRESS EARLIER IN THE DAY, THE FORMER PRIME MINISTER AND VICE-CHAIRMAN OF THE COUNCIL OF STATE, DR. LOUIS BEEL, PRAISED THE MANNER IN WHICH QUEEN JULIANA FULFILLED HER DUTIES AS A QUEEN. HE SAID THE TIES BETWEEN THE ROYAL HOUSE AND THE PEOPLES OF THE REALM HAD ALWAYS BEEN MARKED BY "STRONG MUTUAL TRUST."
