From our blog:

New Year Reception At the Royal Palace in Amsterdam

After a period of two years Queen Beatrix was finally able to hold the annual new year’s receptions at the Royal Palace on Dam square in Amsterdam again. The previous two years the reception was held at Noordeinde Palace due to the extensive renovation of the palace in Amsterdam. This summer however the renovation of the inside of the palace was completed, though there are still some works done to the exterior of the palace.
Today and tomorrow the queen will receive hundreds of guests. This afternoon is reserved for the Dutch guests, most of whom play an important role in politics and in various sectors of Dutch society, while tomorrow morning the queen will receive members of the Corpse Diplomatique and the various international organisations.

Woohoo! Two days of new year's receptions and we finally have a photo: http://www.ppe-agency.com/500px/Jan2010/PPE10010602.jpg

Máxima in a car with a recycled Natan suit (surprise).

And WA playing with his blackberry:

Margriet:

Since the exterior of the palace is still getting restaured, there are fences around the palace. The royals got out of the car behind the fences, out of sight for onlookers and photographers. What a difference with Denmark and even Belgium! I understand that they don't want gala attire but a few pictures of the reception won't hurt. I don't see why it all has to be so 'closed', we havent seen new pictures of triple A. since the summer for example (compare that of all the time we see Christian, Leonor, Ingrid and even Elisabeth)!

I read that yeserday aid workers from Apeldoorn, Schoorl (Dune fires), Hoek van Holland (party crowd started atacking the police) and the Turkish Airways crash were invited. I think that it is nice to invite people who do the job instead of just all the officials!

The reception for the corps diplomatique at least gives more interesting pictures of the guests, who often are dressed in their country's traditional attire:

Ah, you found some pictures! I have been looking on PPE and ANP and did not find anything. Thanks!
Nice website btw!
I was cycling in the paleisstraat yesterday and 8 policemen on motors almost drove over me, so I gathered that the queen must be in the palace (and she WAS).

I'm not usually on this part of the forums, but as an ardent fan of Andre Rieu and his Orchestra I thought you might like to see the concert he performed for HM Queen Beatrix this week:

André to play for Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands

There is a 30 minute video posted at that link

Enjoy!!
(Whistling along to the music....)

I bet they love to travel by train again for such a distance,
they always used to go to Lech by train...way back.


Luckily the Royal train was all spic and span it just had to be fetched from the exhibition in Utrecht
HM had opened on wednesday.Little did we know how soon the RF would be in need of it.

They most likely have to travel back by train too as europes airspace might be closed for the next 48 hours due to the ash clouds

15 hours is quite a journey but I think its worth it. They royals did look a bit odd sticking their heads out of the train window :loll:
Thanks for letting us know they will be making it
