That's an interesting song. What is it about, and when was it sung? And is it really them?

Yes that ARE Beatrix, Claus, Pieter and Magriet. The last two are referenced as Piet and Pitie, It was recorded for the coppery wedding of Pieter and Magrit in 1980. Every attendee of the party got the record as a gift. Also Willem Duys got one ( I am not sure if it was accidentally, but he got one) and let it hear while his radio programm and fortunally one of the listeners recorded it. And so it was never really lost, but just a few know about it. And in the last weeks it was more present again.

It is a fun song. They paraphrase about the word "Loo".

General Questions About the Dutch Royal Family

Why are the windows of the golden coach always open?

It always makes an incomplete impression: as if someone forgot to tidy up that small detail by closing the windows.

If the interior is too hot, then why not just instal air conditioning ventilation?

Perhaps they want to hear what the people are shouting from the streets.

About the airco, since the coach is over a hundred years old, they might not want to put in one. Perhaps it would damage the coach too much.

The glass is probably quite thick. However, I believe (and bear in mind that I do not speak from experience) the occupants will surely hear what the crowd are saying with the window closed.

Royal protocol

In the wake of Crown Princess Victoria and the birth of her daughter I wondered what and how the protocol for a royal birth in Holland is?

There is no big ceremony as far as I can remember.
After a child is born the parents have three days max. to announce the birth. Same for the royals.
W-A announced the names on the third day in all three births, I think.
No pictures of the baby and parents leaving the hospital like with the Danish and Swedish.

When an Heir Apparent is born, 101 salutes are fired in several different locations of the Kingdom. The names of the child are announced either by an official announcement, or at the civil registry. Prince Claus opted for the latter when he announced the name of his first-born son. Soon after birth, the child is baptised as a member of the Dutch Reformed Church.

William IV Monogram ?

Dear all,

I kindly ask you a suggestion for the monogram dispalyed on below picture, the monogram says "CW" and has a marquis crown. Since William IV name was Wilhelm Carl Heinrich Friso, and he was maquis of Veere and Vlissingen, I think that this could be his monogam, but I would like to hear a comment from an expert.





Thanks and Regards
