Drama about the life and dreams of Queen Beatrix. Controversy reigns in the heart of the kingdom, and the monarchy is at stake. It is the day of the Queen's speech, one year after Prince Claus' death. The tension mounts when prime minister Balkenende wants to modify the speech at the last moment. To Beatrix, that is the beginning of an emotional journey that reveals the demands set by the monarchy. She looks back on the happy years when she and Prince Claus travelled across his beloved Africa. And wouldn't you know, right at that moment Balkenende wants to alter the passage in the speech that deals with the national policy on Africa. She also remembers her sojourn in Canada during the war and the Hofmans affair.A glimpse behind the scenes of the Dutch royal family at a time when the House of Orange is forced to show their human side. Director Peter de Baan and screenwriter Ger Beukenkamp previously joined hands for Golden Calf-winning TV films about the royal family: De kroon and De prins en het meisje.
