Princesses Amalia, Alexia and Ariane will not participate during this event.

http://www.parool.nl/parool/nl/224/B...ningsdag.dhtml

Quite understandable IMO. Kingsday with 1000s of over enthousiastic people screaming for photographs, handshakes and expecting you to join & like each and everything in the programme may be a bit much for small children.

Around 10 members of the RF are expected to attend. So I assume it will be the king, queen, and princes Constantijn, Maurits, PC and Floris + spouses. I am not sure about Anita since she seems to still have some problems with walking.

**
The traditional Queensday concert at Noordeinde palace has been changed. This time the concert will be in Haarlem.

**
It will probably be the last King's Day in this style. Next year another format wouldn't be too surprising. The security costs have become very high.

Prof van Vollenhoven told 'Blauw Bloed' that he will be attending this kings day too. As he says they want to 'close this way of celebrating this day together'. So I suppose that leaves the door open to Beatrix participating too.

It is quite clear that next year will be a different concept. I can't imagine they will be walking around in a village/city anymore. The security costs became too high. Perhaps a concert on an alternating town square each year.

I could imagine with the children and the big family the former idea of the 'defile' (at Soestdijk) was probably easier to handle. I don't think that'll ever come back though

I don't think a defile will be reintroduced again either. At least not of the RF sitting on a platform with 'the people' passing and putting flowers at their feet.

-
According to the governor of the province of Noord-Holland, the entire RF will attend except Princess Mabel. Even Beatrix, Pieter, Margriet, Bernhard (!) and Annette. Nice that they can finish this style of the national day with each other.

I can understand all the security issues in today's world. But the Defiles in the past are a pleasure to see on YouTube. The Defile of 1969 shows an adorable Prince Wilhelm kissing Prince Maurits on the forehead. And 1976 has all the little cousins...so adorable.

Happy Birthday King Willem-Alexander

Netherlands national day “King Day” April 25, was celebrated with a reception at the Grand Hotel Gaziantep in 2014.
Netherlands Ambassador Ron Keller, Mrs. Keller took care of the guests attending the reception.
Honorary Consul of the Netherlands in Gaziantep Bora Tezel was a great host.

OMG! How tasteless...

I love the fact, that the first koningsdag happens at my birthday.

And it is so good to see Prince Bernhard.

I don´t know if my dutch is good enough, but I understood Prince Floris saying to a reporter that this was the last King´s Day in this particular way...?! (he was asked if he was sorry that this is the last time)
I think the format introduced during Beatrix´reign was a very democratic one, so to speak. Everyone present was, more or less, able to mingle with the Royals and to join in.
I wonder how they will do it in the future without letting a feeling comin´up of "they-behind-the-barrier-and-us-over-here"?

The fact that the 3-A's were there was a big surprise to everyone apparently...the commentators had just mentioned that it was about time that Amalia should be introduced as the next-in-line. Different from the other european RF's the 3-A children are kept very much out of the public eye, so the general public don't really know them and have some difficulty in remembering who is who...(not helped by the fact that when they do appear in public they were the same outfit)
So hopefully in the next years we will see more of them...

Indeed a very lovely surprise to see the little princesses.

And as always it's fun to see the spontaneous Van Vollenhove family.
Princess Annette especially, she participated in a few games and won some!

I always love the little interviews they give during the walkabouts.
A pity Beatrix didn't give one or did no one dare to ask her?

Now I am curious to know what format they will use for the next King's Day.
When will that be announced? When were the places announced where the next Queen's Day would take place?

They launched their facebook page today! https://www.facebook.com/hetkoninklijk.huis
