A one minute clip of the balcony scene from BT: Her bliver den nye konge hyldet | www.bt.dk
Of Princess Beatrix presenting her son, King Willem-Alexander, who in turn says a few words of thanks.
And finally the A-team coming out.
Of particular interest to me are uniforms, protocol and ceremony. Here is a vid-cap of the predominant guards unit today: http://www.bt.dk/sites/default/files...ands-royal.jpg
They are Royal Marechausse. I.e. para-military police. Responsible for not only guarding at least one royal palace, but they also provide bodyguards for the Dutch royals, NLRF. As well as bodyguards for the visiting royal guests and dignitaries. - Apart from their normal border security and security police duties.
That of course makes their uniform interesting.
They are armed with infantry sabres.
Their white cords around the left shoulder is a guards cord.
Judging from their headdress and name I guess they were originally chasseurs, i.e. light cavalry for special purposes. Not to be confused with hussars.
