According to the NOS Journal there will be a special concert in the Agneschurch in The Hague on the occassion of the birthday of the Prince of Orange. They will perform songs from the 80-years war, among them the Wilhelmus (the national anthem). The news did not say if the prince would attend the concert.

Secretary of the Prince of Orange: Willem-Alexander Wants Less Ceremony

NOVA is interviewing several people about the interview NRC Handelsblad had with Jaap Leeuwenburg, former private secraetary of the Prince of Orange. Mr. Leeuwenburg said that the prince wants less ceremony and more contents during the state visits.

Former minister of foreign affairs, Ben Bot, disagreed. He said that state visits need the 'Walt Disney effect'.
Journalist Dorine Hermans also thinks ceremony is important and needed for a monarchy.

That would sure be great Marengo. But now that you mention it, where will he live once he is king? I don't suppose they will remain living at Eikenhorst right?

Nobody knows, but it is expected that Beatrix will move to castle Drakensteyn in Laage Vuursche and that WA & Maxima will move to Huis ten Bosch palace.

I would prefer Beatrix to stay in Huis ten Bosch though, and WA and Maxima to move to a renovated Soestdijk, but that is unlikely.

In the afternoon HRH opened part of the nature development center Noorderwaard near Werkendam,thus ensuring the water of the rivers Rhine and Maas/Meuse to connect and also to have more "space" to controle high water levels in the Biesbosch delta.

I usually find it odd when they actually remove/demolish land to make place for water/nature. I know it is the trend and usually needed for the defence against water, but still... it seems against our national character .

Same here.Feels like a contradiction,we exist because of our fight against the water,and we will exist just a little longer by giving the land back to the water bit by bit.
A bit of Luctor et Emergo in reverse.

He must have enjoyed the match very much, considering the result and because it was not a boring match either.
He seems to be very animated with the vice prime minister, Wouter Bos (next to him).
