There must have been a fierce breeze, so to see (the King's hairdo). Too bad that the King did not opt for an uniform or jacquet but of course the new Corps National Police (all local and regional police forces have merged into one corps with one command) is a civil force. Stylish uniforms, those policemen.

Afterwards the King swore in new members of the Supreme Court of the Netherlands:


** anp gallery ** belga **
The usual oath ceremonies by the King himself are for:

- new ministers
- new state-secretaries
- new ambassadors
- a new Governor of Aruba
- a new Governor of Curaçao
- a new Governor of Saint Martin
- a new Kingdom Representative for Bonaire
- a new Kingdom Representative for Sint Eustatius
- a new Kingdom Representative for Saba
- a new vice-president and new councillors of the Council of State
- a new president, a new vice-president, new Justices and a new clerk of the High Council (the supreme court)
- a new presecutor-general and new advocates general at the High Council (the supreme court)
- a new president, new members and a new clerk of the Auditory Chamber
- new King's Commissioners (governors of the provinces)

Also high ranked functionaries of the King's Household and the Military House of the King make a solemn pledge in front of him. The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, and the commanders of the Royal Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and the Royal Marechaussee to not make an oath in front of the King, they do it in front of the troops. Afterwards they are received in audience by the King. The same counts for functionaries like the president of the High Council of Nobility, the National Ombudsman, the chairs of the First and the Second Chamber, etc. It looks like an enormous lot of work but this is "networking" hors categorie, of course.

During a visit of the King a man held a board with "**** the King!". The man was 'with gentle hand' moved away by the police. In these days of "Je suis Charlie!' suddenly it looks as you can slam any insult in public without being afraid to be corrected because of the oh-so sacred "freedom of speech" which is confused with "freedom to insult".

:(

King W-A has reacted to the discussion surrounding the f*** incident in an interview with american journalists
Koning reageert op '**** de koning'-discussie | NOS
He mentions that he cannot share his own opinion, but he thinks that the law forbidding insults of the king should be discussed and that he follows the debate and will accept the outcome

translation

imo this reaction is very much in style with how W-A had said he saw his king-ship in an interview when Q.Beatrix abdicated, and it is a way that (imo) fits in very well with the dutch culture in general
