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

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.
