Abdicating Queens

With the abdication of the Dutch Queen some people have been suggesting that the English Queen should do the same. I disagree. The Dutch royalty has a history of abdication where the last three queens have all abdicated. England does not have a history of abdication with the first and only voluntary abdication being that of the Queen’s uncle – which is what led to the Queen;s father becoming King. Abdication in Dutch royalty implies stability, in English royalty it implies chaos.
