Thank you to everyone who shared the photos and videos of this year's King's Day. I've always wished that we had a national celebration on the scale of King's Day here in England, we have Trooping the Colour but it's not that widely celebrated (well, not in my area at least). They look really fun.

The AAA's are lovely, and they've grown up a lot! I think all three princesses are very pretty but Alexia is blossoming into a rather beautiful young lady. I love their little flower bracelets, they're cute details. The video of Alexia speaking with the reporters was nice too, and it was sweet to hear of her excitement about King's Day. She appeared to be very confident and sociable, she didn't seem to have a problem chatting with the reporters.

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone". Audrey Hepburn

"Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy". Anne Frank

The most boring Koningsdag up to now, I am sorry to say. While I alwaye like the attendance of the Van Vollenhovens, the prominence of the triple A's irritated me. Especially Amalia and eventually I found out why. Amalia already eclipsed her father because she has the personality that -in my eyes- her father is supposed to have as a King but doesn't. He totally misses the stateliness of his mother and that is something I want to see in a King. Stately yet warm like his grandmother, Queen Juliana. He has neither.
If anything, he has converted the Royal House into a business. In Amalia I see three generations combined: stately like Queen Wilhelmina (and Queen Beatrix, who also had grandeur) and warm like Queen Juliana - she will be very strong once she ascends the Throne. With her father I miss feeling and a majestic radiation.
