Apparently the costs are estimated at 250.000 euros for Woudrichem and 800.000 euros for 's Hertogenbosch. This caused the usual complaints from the Socialist Party. (source: Editie NL, RTL 4)

I'm assuming that Maxima will not attend (as that's about when she should give birth). Has there been any official word on that?
And will Alexia and Amalia be there?

I'm certainly not an expert on the Dutch royals but I have looked back through all the other years of the Koninginnedag, I don't remember seeing any of the children of the Dutch royals at the past Queen's day events. But I could be wrong. I really think Alexia might be too young as for Amalia I think she would steal the show, how cute.

I could be wrong about this too but I thought it was already stated that Maxima would not attend this year.

It was announced that Princess Maxima will not attend Queensday celebrations. But if the baby hurries, who knows.... she might surprise us
The small ones will probably not attend, they haven't attended previous years either.
During Juliana's Queensdays it was normal for them to be present, even when they were still babies (they didn't have to walk through 2 cities then but stay at the stairs of Soestdijk Palace).

I can hardly wait to see everyone tomorrow. Kind of surprised that there are no pre-Koninginnedag pics of things being set up and things of that nature. But I guess we will see plenty tomorrow.

Just looking at the PPE pictures, am I the only one who thinks Annette looks rounder than usual? Or is her dress illussioning?

Well I'm wearing my feathery hat and wearing a large "I love Bea" badge. The Queen looks fab but haven't we seen this outfit before?

Everyone looked wonderful & happy today. Its such a great event to follow & stay updated with all the info & pictures because its one of the very few events where you get to see the entire royal family (except for this year, missing Maxima) happy & enjoying a day out together.

The Ladies all looked beautiful, id be hoping to see a headpiece if not a hat.Except for Laurentien, it was a nice piece but i think too much green going around.

Prince Maurits is so charming! Imo he's the most handsome dutch Prince...

Aimée really seems to be in the spotlight today. She looks beautiful and happy. Her outfit-choice is perfect as usual. You really cannot see she's pregnant at all (like Princess Mary during her last pregnancy)...


Laurentien's outfit looks okay... but this hat is simply awful!

Visit to tle little town of Woudrichem

The Queen and her company visited the little town of Woudrichem first and then will travel to 's-Hertogenbosch (Bois-le-Duc, the Duke's Forest), the capital of the province Brabant.

Woudrichem showed small scale activities which are pretty representative for many Queen's Day activities all over the country.

Princess Laurentien and Princess Aimée

The Prince of Orange directs along with singing schoolchildren

The Queen with the mayor of Woudrichem. Behind her the Queen's Commissioner in Brabant.

Flowers for the ladies

Laurentienesque as always....

Glamorous: Prince Maurits and Princess Marilène

Très chic: Princess Margriet

The Birthday Girl

I liked Princess Mabel's outfit, except for the sunglasses she wore so now and then

A very popular and loved couple. They will assist Willem IV and Máxima.

's-Hertogenbosch / Bois-le-Duc (The Duke's Forest)

The Queen examines a pageant of 'the most beautiful Prince and Princess'

The Prince of Orange applauds for a song in sign language by deaf children. Next to him, the mayor of 's-Hertogenbosch

Princess Laurentien, Princess Margriet (can you believe she is 63 ?) and the Queen

Princess Margriet and prof. mr. Pieter van Vollenhoven

awaiting more pictures, especially the spectacular sailing alongside the fortresses....

The ladies all looked lovely with their very own style. But Maxima was most missed!

Long live the Queen! All the hands in the air!

Hooray! Show us all your hands!

It was a most sunny and sparkling Queen's Day. Yes, Princess Máxima was absent, but therefore all the attention went to the just 40 years old Prince who came hands too short to receive all the best wishes for his birthday and his new daughter.

But it was not Máxima-day or Prince's Day. It was The Queen all went about, today.

The Prince dancing salsa in the Queen's Day Ballroom-tent

Some basketball....

For the proud daddy....

The Queen admiring artistic street theatre

Let me help you blowing up giant orange balloons!

A much cheered Prince, today

Hockey with the ladies? Okay!

So many beautiful Princes and Princesses all around me!

Mabel! It is all beyond belief! All those toys for the girls!

Princess Laurentien and Princess Margriet join in the salsa dancing
