Princess Laurentien wears a powder pink dress of Hardies, The Hague, with the pink stones that Q. Maxima usually wears.

The Queen in a Burgundy dress of Taminiau with long hair and a weird piece of cloth on top. Perhaps to make the ball gown more suitable for the day. She wears a new combination of the Ruby devant corsage & brooch.

The King kept his beard. According to the NOS the Royal Mint and the Postal services will not change the design of coins or stamps and will wait to see if it will last.

IMHO the diction of the King has improved quite a bit in comparison with his first speeches from the throne.

What a load of crap in the DM. The King and Queen held their heads bowed down for most of the day???? They were only greeting a regimental standard, good heavens.

I always love the carriage used for Prinsjesdag and the pomp and circumstance in general! I think the Dutch RF are one of the only other RFs who have quite a pompous ceremony for the opening of parliament aside from the British RF.

The video did not catch indoors proceedings.

The selected parliamentarians forming today's "Commission for the In- and Extrance" are awaiting the arrival of the royal cortège: https://www.tweedekamer.nl/sites/def...?itok=Jfc5cR7E

The dresscode is jacquet for gentlemen and "dressed" for ladies: https://nos.nl/data/image/2019/08/30.../2048x1152.jpg

The King's Speech:

The chairman: "Long live the King!" (All: Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!) :

Back on the palace:

The King has authorized the Minister of Finances to offer the Note on the State's Finances 2019 and the State Budget 2020. The Minister contraseigns the Royal Command before it is sealed in an orange ribbon and placed in a special suitcase:

The Minister on his way to the Second Chamber to offer the Budget 2019:

This is factually what all the day and all the fuss is about, the financial backing for the policy outlined in the King's Speech.

In Scotland that paper is known as the Daily Lie.
