A look back at Beatrix's reign as her 75th birthday portrait is revealed

This year's birthday is a very special one for the monarch as it's her last as queen.

She will also celebrate her last Queen's day later in the year. From 2014 the celebration will be on April 27 and will be named King's Day, in honour of Willem-Alexander.

It will also be a special year for her granddaughter Amalia, who will become first-in-line to the throne
