It was used for prinsjesdag in Juliana's days, when Noordeinde was not used by the RF:

Former palace Lange Voorhout (now the Escher Museum) in The Hague. Originally built as a city mansion for the deputy of Friesland in the Counsil of State, but from 1841-1983 a royal palace.







pictures by Chris Schram

Here a drawing of the palace in the time that Prince Hendrik and Princess Marie (nee Pss of Prussia) lived there. From the Alexanderforum, poisted by Thijs:

Thanks for the pictures! I was not familiar with these palaces, it's nice to see other buildings besides the more photographed ones. The books I have seem to stay in the historically popular structures.

Now the interior of (former) Palace Lange Voorhout in The Hague. Again all posted by Thijs on the Alexanderpalace forum.

Vestibule:



Sitting room:



The main staircase. The uppe painting was identified as a Waldeck-Pyrmont anscestor of Queen Emma and the lower portrait is Empress Maria Feodorovna of Russia (mother of Queen Anna). The last paining was replaced to palace Noordeinde.



Another room in Lange Voorhout. On the paining right a young king Willem III and his brother Alexander.

More of Lange Voorhout, again as posted by Thijs on the Alexanderpalace forum.

The ballroom around 1980:



Dressingroom of Queen Emma:




Drawing room of Queen Emma with on the background portraits of her parents and sisters (and maybe her brother as well). The portraits were inherited by her cousin Fuerst Josias of Waldeck-Pyrmont.



Better view of the portraits:

It was built originally for a Frisian deputy to the estates general. Much later king Willem II bought it. The palace passed to prince Hendrik (uncle of Q. Wilhelmina) and later to Queen Emma. Juliana sold it in 1991 to the state. Since 2004 it is the location of the Esscher Museum.

Unfortunately yes...Juliana used it as her office during her Reign,would have done nicely these days as a Palace.... It is beautifull!!

Queen Juliana was the first queen to start the riding tour of the Golden Carriage from Lange Voorhout Palace at the opening of the States General on Prince's Day.
