Dutch Queen Beatrix, right, Dutch Crown Prince Willem Alexander, center, and his wife Princess Maxima, left, wave to wellwishers from the balcony of Royal Palace Noordeinde after the Queen officially opened the new parliamentary year with a speech outlining the caretaker government's plan and budget policies for 2011 in the 13th century "Hall of Knights" in The Hague, Netherlands, Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2010. As conservative parties negotiate a new government, the Netherlands' outgoing Cabinet was due to present on Tuesday an austere budget for 2011 that will slash government jobs, spending on immigrants, and tax breaks for families. At the start of an afternoon full of ceremonies, rituals and conspicuous hats, Queen Beatrix rode through the streets of The Hague in her gold-trimmed horse-drawn carriage, waving to tens of thousands of fans who lined the route leading to the 13th-century Hall of Knights.
