Does anyone know which coaches were used this year?

The glass coach for the king, the gala glass berline for prince Constantijn. The latter coach was changed for the wedding of Princess Margriet and Pieter van Vollenhoven, more glass was added so the royals would be more visible. In the 50-ties and early 60-ties the princesses often used an open carriage.

They showed the golden carriage at the beginning of the broadcast: it seems to have been dismantled. It will take a few years for the restauration to be completed.

Last year it seemed (to me) that the king and queen almost hit the ceiling of the glass carriage, but this year the proportions seems to be less off. Maybe they lowered the bench.

For some reason Princess Margriet prefers to skip the event all together. I do not think she appeared at the cabinet since 2013. Princess Christina often accompanied her mother Princess Juliana during Prinsjesdag, until she moved abroad again.

The reporter noted that in only 5 years Princess Amalia will start to accompany her parents.
