Thanks for the pictures everyone, this is one of my favorite royal families. The girls are getting so big, P.Amalia looks just like her grandmother Princess Beatrix, P.Alexia looks just like Queen Maxima and P.Ariane looks just like King W-A, they are all very beautiful girls.

The reviews of the day were rather positive, even in the left-leaning Volkskrant. The celebrations feel much more 'now' than it did during the previous reign. The choice for one larger city/town seems to work out well: there were 150.000 spectators, more than double the amount that was expected -and that is despite the bad weather predictions. They noted that there were much more older teenagers/young adults than a few years ago.

The entire visit can be seen here:

Lovely that they arrived by royal train. It seems they have been using it more frequently these last years.

From today Queen Máxima's outfit will be exhibited in the textile museum in Tilburg. The designer, Jan Taminiau, was born and raised close to the city. A ncie way to attract some more visitors to the museum.

I was aftraid for a twitterstorm about the physical changes of Princess Amalia, but in the general positive vibe of the royal family in twitterland, it remained calm on that front.

I would say, there are always big crowds on King's Day / Queen's Day, in every city. And they seem to get bigger and bigger because it more and more changes into mega events with music, dance and that sort of things.

This was in Breda, the old Nassau-city close to Tilburg: https://youtu.be/jzwPB3n3L9E

What was the name of that song that Guus Meewis was singing with the group on stage? The royals knew it and were all swaying along!

A big thank you for all the videos and photos!💐😄

I looked it up and it was Brabant by Guus Meeuwis (the singer on stage). It surprised me that Alexia sang along to it so good!

And this year’s King’s Day celebrations in Groningen will include events focusing on the effects of the earthquakes in the province caused by gas production. City mayor Peter den Oudsten said he wanted to include ‘not just the many good things about Groningen’

They are protesting the extraction of Natural Gas from the earth in Groningen, because the continious extraction is causing more and more earthquakes in the area
