Willem-Alexander & Máxima Launch ‘Dream’ Book and Exhibit
King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima yesterday launched the ‘Dream at Het Loo Palace’ exhibition, which showcases 120 of the dreams featured in Droomboek (Dream Book) released to mark the King’s inauguration in April.
The dreams, which were submitted by 6,500 members of the Dutch public and illustrate what their dreams are for the future of the Dutch monarchy, are printed on flags leading down the avenue from the stables to the palace in the gardens of Het Loo Palace.
Willem-Alexander was presented with the first copy of the Droomboek by Hans Wijers, the chairman of the National Investiture Committee, before he and his wife officially opened and toured the exhibition. The King thanked the public and the committee for the idea behind the book, saying that he “hopes this will last many years.”
The exhibition is free to the public, and will run until October 27th. A free copy of the book is available to every household in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and is also available to download from the NIC website.Filed under The Netherlands
