The Netherlands will have its first king after more than 120 years.

Queen Beatrix is abdicating after thirty years as head of state in favour of her eldest son, Prince Willem-Alexander, who will become the first Dutch king since 1890.

The Queen will revert to the title of Princess, but not until the official handover, on April 30.
