Even though the legal obligation has been abolished long ago, courts across the country still have portraits of Queen Beatrix. The exception is the court at the Parnassusweg in Amsterdam, Merel Thie reported in NRC Handelsblad yesterday, where all but 2 portraits have been replaced with ‘highly neutral art, such as woven tapestries with fanciful lines’. The official portraits have been returned to the state.
