Thus came the Queen

Now that Queen Beatrix has stepped down, I see no reason why I shouldn't step up. Starting this very minute, I assume the mantle of Queen of The Worlds Blog.

Have no fear! As Queen, we shall rule justly. Already, everything feels different! I sense that we have certain powers. For instance, we can and will bestow knighthoods. And of course, we shall have our royal portrait done. Looking ahead, we shall issue missives occasionally. And of course we will do appearances and hand waves. Lots of hand waves. We've got our white gloves ready (and we really do have white gloves).

Suddenly everything looks fresh and new. We are pleased. Our subjects may begin giving us gifts immediately. There will be no waiting period. This Queen is fully up and running.
