Mabel and Johan Friso lost their right to the throne and do not belong to the royal house anymore, so no need for them on the balcony. They will never attend important state occassions (only family functions).

Thanks for the pictures!

Princess Margaret looks the best of all of them. I can't say I care too much for Laurentien's outfit though. The swirly green pattern ... Though her jewellery was very nice.

Lovely photos...

Everyone looks really excited an happy.:)

Princess Margriet looks really elegant in her suit. I like Princess Maxima's tweed jacket and dress, seperately but not together.

I think Princess Laurentien's pearl and emerald joker is simply BEAUTIFUL! :)

Anyone else find it interesting that on the balcony it was WA/Maxima in the center and not Queen Beatrix? Very unusual.

No, Beatrix stands in the middle of the balcony,I saw it on tv. She walked to the center of the balcony, her sister an Mr. van vollenhoven next to her, on her left, and then the Prince of Orange and his wife came, they stood to her rightside, but then the last couple came, and they choose to stand on the rightside.....

always the 3rd tuesday of september. I do not know why the 3rd or why in september. Monday was not allowed as members of parlaiment who lived in another part of the country had to travel on a sunday (a coach is not that fast), which was unthinkable in the calvinistic netherlands, so they held it on a tuesday.

This thread has now been cleaned up. Unfortunately, I had to remove many posts because of broken links. I hope we can refreshen this thread with pictures. Princess Margriet is usually at Prinsjesdag with her sister and nephews isn't she? I only saw one picture of her with her husband.

Maxima was pregnant with Amalia during Prinsjesdag 2003 and this year she will be pregnant with baby number #2 at Prinsjesdag again.

Prinsjesdag 2005

Tuesday 20 September the Queen will drive in her Golden Coach to "Het Binnenhof" for the opening of the Parliamentary Year. Prince Willem-Alexander, Princess Máxima, Princes Constantijn, Princess Laurentien, Princess Margriet and Mr.Pieter van Vollenhoven will accompagny her.

From www.koninklijkhuis.nl:
---------

State Opening of Parliament (Prinsjesdag)


On Prinsjesdag, the Queen delivers her Speech from the Throne to a joint session of the Senate and House of Representatives.


The speech sets out the government's plans for the coming year. Article 65 of the Constitution refers to the Speech from the Throne as follows: “A statement of the policy to be pursued by the government shall be given by or on behalf of the King before a joint session of the two Houses of the States General that shall be held every year on the third Tuesday in September or on such earlier date as may be prescribed by Act of Parliament.”

The Constitution does not stipulate the speech’s length, content or order, which may vary from year to year.

The most recent Speeches from the Throne: 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 2000, 1999.
----------------


Procession of the Golden Coach

On the stroke of one, the Queen, normally accompanied by other members of the Royal House, leaves Noordeinde Palace for the Binnenhof, escorted by court dignitaries and a military escort of honour. Outside the palace stand an escort of honour and a military band.


The Queen travels to the Binnenhof in the Golden Coach. During the procession, salutes are fired at one-minute intervals to let the people know that the head of state is on her way to the joint session of the States General.

As the Queen arrives at the Binnenhof, a band by the steps strikes up the “Wilhelmus” (see national anthem). The Queen and other members of the Royal House salute the flag and mount the Ridderzaal’s steps, above which hangs a canopy.



---------------


Those present

At around 12:30 on Prinsjesdag, the members of the Senate and House of Representatives enter the Ridderzaal.


They sit opposite and to the left and right of the throne. The ministers and state secretaries sit to the left of the throne. Behind them sit members of the Council of State, the government’s highest advisory body. They all sit in the “enceinte”, an area enclosed by unobtrusive wooden barriers symbolising that the head of state is in conference with Parliament.

Outside the enceinte are seats for the other High Councils of State, senior civil servants, high-ranking officers of the armed forces, senior members of the judiciary, the Queen’s Commissioner of the province of South Holland, the mayor of The Hague and specially invited guests.
--------------


Ceremony in the Ridderzaal

The president of the Senate presides over the joint session. Shortly before 13:00, he opens the meeting and then appoints a number of ushers from among the members of the two Houses to escort the Queen and her entourage.


The ushers receive the Queen and the members of the Royal House at the entrance to the Ridderzaal. The president of the joint session then announces the arrival of the head of state: a signal for all those present to stand. The Queen then proceeds to the throne, from where she delivers her Speech from the Throne.

“Long live the Queen”


After the Queen’s closing words, the president cries “Long live the Queen”, which is followed by three cheers from everyone present. The first time this happened was in 1897, when the young Wilhelmina accompanied her mother, Queen Regent Emma.

This brings an end to the joint session of the two houses. The ushers escort the Queen and members of the Royal House to the door. The president then closes the session.

When the Queen leaves the Ridderzaal, the escort of honour again forms in the Binnenhof, and the procession returns to Noordeinde Palace.
