Some more on ANP:

He has a lot of family photos on his desk, and one with Nelon Mandela. I wonder what the flag with autographs is all about. It seems that this is still his old office. On one of the walls is a famous painting of Queen Beatrix by Märthe Röling.

Edit: the flag is a gift from Astronaut André Kuipers who took it with him in space. The signatures are of Kuipers and the rest of his team.

Nice to see that former PM Piet de Jong attended too! Let's hope that the megalomanic lion was only there for the opening.

In 2001 the renovation started with the use of energy-saving and environmentally friendly materials.

In a new uniform I see. I am confused now, I thought he wouldn't wear uniforms anymore, hence the suit at the inauguration. It was said that a member of the government can not be a member of the army, hence he can not wear a uniform. But apparently that story was incorrect.

I thought the same, that he was no longer allowed to wear uniforms but apparently he he can just not be a serving member of the armed forces so he can wear a uniform if it has royal insignia rather than rank insignia on. So teh Dutch Ministry of Defence says on
King will retain close relationship with armed forces | Ministry of Defence

"Uniform
Because of his close relationship with the armed forces, the King will continue to wear his uniform at special ceremonial occasions. The rank insignia will be replaced by a Royal Insignia."

Thanks for looking that up, I suppose that solves the puzzle. So basically it is a ceremonial uniform and not a real one. It is nice that the king made this gesture, since he has always shown great interest in the armed sources. When prince Bernhard died(and perhaps before that), it was usually WA who went to special commemorations, events etc. of the army.
I wonder if the çeremonial occassions where WA will wear these uniforms will only be related to the military or also at events like Prinsjesdag and state visits. We will see that soon enough I guess.
