The Dutch queens

Perhaps I should have mentioned Wilhelmina, Juliana, and Beatrix in the discussion. However, those women voluntarily renounced their queenly titles and adopted the more modest title of Princess -- unlike the dowager queens in the past (e.g. Anna, Emma).
There was no principle to stop any of them from continuing to style herself as Queen: it's just that after abdication, she would have ceased to be Her Majesty THE Queen of the Netherlands.
