Queen Beatrix working as a volunteer for Make A Difference Day,putting on a apron,serving coffee,helping out with the bingo,visiting those that are unable to take part in all as they're to frail to be out of bed,taking orders for the menu's and serving them,cutting meat for those unable to do so themselves,making jokes,and using the time she has to wait at the food-counter to talk to other volunteers but as soon as "her" meals come through she runs for it again.The people were enthousiastic  about HM as she had an eye and ear for all"she goes for it,she can't be stopped".One of the elderly raised the question as to how to address her,Madame or Your Majesty,HM replied smilingly:"Oh,never mind that":
