TV-report: State Visit Queen Beatrix

In 1995 the Dutch Queen Beatrix made a State visit to Indonesia. The Dutch TV report ‘Yet the pictures were beautiful’ questions the arrival on August 21st, four days after the 17th of August celebrations when Indonesia commemorated 50 years of Independence. Did the Indonesian President Suharto not want her to join the commemoration, or did the Dutch government prevent her arrival on that historical date?
