Thanks a lot for pointing that out, QueenMaximaftw! I had slightly mistranslated the official news entry and had thought both had happened yesterday. I had tried to translate it from Dutch to German without any translation tool - a little self-chosen challenge I enjoy from time to time..


King Willem-Alexander today also opened the new building of Eurojust in Den Haag:

Any translation you do on your own is worth a big applause!!

Picture.

The King and the Mayor (and the Mayor's glamorous wife) during the glorious King's Water Pageant on April 30th 2013: picture.
The King also visited the late Mayor last week privately,just a few days before he died last thursday.Very moving.

Donner was indeed received at the Eikenhorst (as were the two chairs of parliament) - in the morning - but the PM was received at Noordeinde Palace in the afternoon (the king and queen had just had lunch with a group of 'stars' (typically those who won some kind of prize earlier in the year) at the same palace).

Love this picture of the PM parking his bike (and locking it!) next to the entrance of the palace. Can't imagine any other country where this could be seen.

Eikenhorst is not a palace, just the King's private villa on the royal estate De Horsten in Wassenaar (near The Hague). The King did not receive his guests in the villa but in those ghastly temporarily placed containers which serve as office as long as Huis ten Bosch Palace is under restoration.

No idea why the Vice-President of the Council of State and the Chair of the First Chamber (the Senate) were received in "the container" and the Premier at Noordeinde Palace. Will have been a matter of logistics, I think.
