    Background: IN AMSTERDAM, MAY 1, THE 120 KINGS, QUEENS, PRINCESS, PRINCESSES AND OTHER DISTINGUISHED GUESTS ATTENDING THE SILVER WEDDING CELEBRATIONS OF QUEEN JULIANA AND PRINCE BERNHARD OF THE NETHERLANDS LEFT THE AMSTEL HOTEL, WHERE THEY ARE STAYING FOR THE DURATION OF THE FESTIVITIES, AT 8.15 PM TO TRAVEL TWO MILES BY BOAT ALONG THE FLOODLIT CANALS.

    THE WATER-TAXI TRIP ON THE "GRACHTEN" - AS THE CANALS ARE KNOWN IN HOLLAND - TOOK THE VISITORS ALONG THE ROUTE OF THE CLASSIC TOURIST TOUR OF ILLUMINATED 17TH-CENTURY BUILDING BY THE RIVERSIDE.

    FROM THE CANAL THE PARTY, INCLUDING THE SHAH OF PERSIA AND QUEEN FARAH, AND QUEEN ELIZABETH AND THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH, WENT BY CAR TO THE ROYAL PALACE AT THE DAM SQUARE IN THE CENTRE OF AMSTERDAM, WHERE A GALA BALL CONCLUDED THE FIRST DAY OF THE CELEBRATIONS.

    THE WEATHER, ALTHOUGH DRY, WAS EXTREMELY COOL FOR THE TIME OF THE YEAR - A DISAPPOINTMENT FOR QUEEN JULIANA WHO HAD POSTPONED THE FESTIVITIES FROM JANUARY - THE MONTH OF THE ACTUAL WEDDING ANNIVERSARY - UNTIL MAY.
