Thanks a lot for the pictures JessRulz and Henri M. The ladies looked wonderful
Mabel's sunglasses? Not so sure about that, though.

Thanks for the pictures guys. All the ladies looked lovely and Willem seems very happy. I too, miss Maxima, but understand she wants to be with her baby and Amalia and Alexia.

I find it kind of sad. A gigantic turnout of the royal family. A massed turnout of the public in Woudirchem and 's-Hertogenbosch. Millions of people enjoying Queen's Day in all cities and villages in all parts of the kingdom. A visibly extremely enjoying royal family. Already since the Stadtholderly era in the 17th Century the birthday of the Prince was publicly celebrated.

And what is this all about? "We miss Máxima". Unbelievable. As if all this today was worthless without her or something... What would Máxima's attendance have added to this day? Is it about her garderobe? The athmosphere was 100% super. With Beatrix. With Mabel. With Laurentien. With Margriet. With Marilène. With Aimée. With Annette. And name them all.

The Princess simply has not recovered enough to walk miles through the crowded streets of two cities and witness the festivities for hours, standing, walking, sitting, sailing, riding.

That is also the reason why the grand festivities for the Prince's 40th birthday were re-scheduled for September 1st at Het Loo Palace.



Nice idea: all schoolchildren made paintings for the fences in the streets

The royal family sailing alongside historical tableaux-vivants

Choirs singing for the Queen alongside the route

Elegant outfit

Edgewater Park Township Police assisting in the Netherlands....

Folkloric dances

Thank you !

Crowds waving alongside the river

Playful cousins

I absolutely love this event. I looked forward to it so much last year and this year even more. Thanks to all that have posted pics. It looks like everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. I love seeing the pics of mother and son together. Those are always my fave to see.

Happy Queen's Day to all the Dutch!

Thank you to everyone who posted reports and pictures of this happy day. I wonder if the future king will retain the same style of Koninginnegdag (I don't know how to say King's Day) when it is his turn. It would be nice if his cousins could also join him as well.

I'm so glad you said this Henri! It's QueensDay, not MaximaDay......but
what's a garderobe??

Of all the Q.Day threads I've seen, this honestly looks the most fun! This is the first time I wished I was there.

Prince Maurits is Gorgeous!

Princess Aime(?)looks extremely elegant with her baby bump. She was best dressed.

I actually like P. Laurentien's outfit...but not the scarf-thing!

And Mable's sunglasses have got to go.


Oh, I forgot to mention the photo of the choir singing while Queen Beatrix floated by and the photo of Mother and Son are very lovely.

That hat is disgraceful. It looks like something you'd see a dancer on Solid Gold in the 80s wearing. Awful, awful awful.


Aimee looked beautiful and for once I didn't have an issue with Mabel. Quelle surprise.

sorry, but Maxima is the crownprincess. she is the future queen consort and the mother of the future queen regnant. and she is a very big, very important part of the Dutch royal family.

it is only natural that people should miss her. i dont think expressing that sentiment in any way diminishes today's event.

my thoughts exactly! laurentien seems to have an affinity for those scarves. i dont understand it. they dont flatter her at all.

Aimee was so elegant. she seems to emulate Jackie O.

the queen looked lovely too.

and yes, mabel was quite restrained and tasteful. it's been awhile since I've absolutely hated something she's worn. this bodes well for the future. or maybe she's just regrouping for a second assault on our corneas. element of surprise and all that...let's hope not.

Very well said. I look forward to these events, mostly because I want to see what she's wearing. Kinda silly I know, but I like her and I like to see what she's doing. So yeah, her not being there was a downer, but she had good reason not to be there and no one here is saying she should be there anyway. She just had a baby.

I love seeing all the pictures of Queen's Day! The DRF always seem to have such a good time. My pick for best dressed was Princess Aimee. I thought she looked so pretty and chic in her outfit. I also liked Marilene but I would have preferred if she had worn different shoes with her outfit. Laurentien was dressed well but that head thing has to go-it was horrible! What a shame that Maxima was not there but it was great to see eveyone else.
