At first I thought Maxima has a new hair cut, apparently not.

There were scenes of jubilation in the Dutch city of Dordrecht today, as flag-waving locals turned out to welcome King Willem-Alexander and his glamorous wife Maxima today.
The visit, which kicked off with a pageant aboard a flotilla of boats on the local canal, was part of Willem-Alexander's 48th birthday celebrations.
Koningsdag - or King's Day - is a public holiday in the Netherlands and is traditionally marked with a royal procession either in the capital Amsterdam or in one of the country's major cities.

here is a link to various videos of the Dutch Royal Family's performance in Dordrecht today in the context of Kings Day. Queen Maxima danced to a popular Dutch hit, the King made a speech calling for audience participation and the various cousins, notably Prince Maurits, caused female hearts to flutter as he kissed his way through the crowds

The king and queen dancing in Amsterdam : Koningspaar danst de tango op gevel caf De Blaffende Vis - AMSTERDAM CENTRUM - PAROOL
On the same song apparently.

Nice that princess Anita and prince Pieter Christiaan were there, as their attendance was not announced. I think it was also a good idea to keep the van Vollenhovens there. The three young princesses behaved very well.

It must be odd for the older generation to be free on this day, for the first time in 7 decades for the princess Beatrix and Princess Margriet and the first time in 5 decades for Pieter van Vollenhoven. I wonder if they watched the broadcast together or possibly with their (other) grandchildren. I beleive that in the old days the family would gather at Soestdijk afterwards.

The day on youtube:









Apparently the programme ran 1 hour late. There are mixed reactions about this new style kings day. The royals seem more distant than usual. But still not as distant as some feared. Also, there is more attention for local businesses to make the day more profitable for the organising city.
