For the program, Stax traveled to Buenos Aires, New York and Brussels, among others.

The people in the program share their personal anecdotes and memories and take Stax into the life story of the Queen.

"With this series I hope to get a little closer and take viewers into her unique life story."

Stax also announced that it is discontinuing the radio program

Stax & Toine.

From 1 March she will hand over the baton of the afternoon program to Mischa Blok.

"Unfortunately, due to my busy television recording schedules, it is no longer possible to present a daily radio program in addition to my TV work," Stax said in a statement.

"With pain in my heart I had to decide to stop presenting

Stax & Toine
