I know when WA is formally installed as monarch he will be wearing white tie, and that he has already given up all his military ranks, but when he is King of The Netherlands will he also be C in C of the armed forces and entitled to wear the uniform of General or Admiral on occassion?

Apparently Dutch law does not allow a member of the military to also be a member of the government, and The King is a member of the government. WA will not be C in C or hold the ranks of Admiral or General but some new uniform without rank is being designed for him to wear on appropriate occassions.

Here's a pic of that last meeting on April 17. I can't decide whether it's Máxima sitting next to him or not, her attendance has not been mentioned.

Pownews of GeenStijl had a joke: during the event they played the king's song very loud. The organization thought it was part of the event - which it was not.
