What a wonderful Event and a Wonderful Royal Family. They were all there, smiling and happy what a difference with our royal family!
Just very sad for Prince Bernard and his wife Anita.
By the way Lucien , you were not invited this time ?

Prince Bernhard is married to Princess Annette.
Due to his severe illness the couple was not present.
Princess Anita is married to Prince Pieter Christiaan.
Due to a serious operation on her back a few years ago she is often not capable to be present on those festivities.

The Dutch Royal Family get my vote for warmest European Royals! Princesses Beatrix & Margriet sure do love their capes!

I would never ask anyone for a translation for the whole event but what was the part at the end when the audience all put on hats. I saw a video of it on a website and Beatrix seemed to find it really funny I just wondered if / why it was significant.
(from 3.20ish)
Big thanks in advance!!

She looked very sad until they put those hats on. Whatever it meant, I was glad to see her smile.

Everyone in the audience had a box underneath the seat containing a paper hat.Chantal Jantzen,the presentor of the evening, had requested the audience to put on the hats on her sign to do so after her own performance at the end of the show...This request she made before the Princess Beatrix made her entrance...At her sign all would take off their hats and scream Chapeau!!! for the Princess...And it worked,Beatrix was listening concentrated and had no clue what was coming until the very moment and then she burst out in laughter and was very moved by the surprise....Hope you,et tout,now get a better idea of it all...It was very impressive,both the evening but especially this very moment...And so good to see her laugh as she did again.Was a wonderfull tribute.
