For the music specialists: the song played at the entrance of the King and the Queen in the church called: ''entrata della regina'' what means: the entrance of the Queen. This to honour Queen Beatrix. After that the national anthem will be played.

The'entrada della regina' was composed by Jurriaan Andriessen for the inhauguration of Queen Beatrix. They used it later for the wedding of WA and Máxima and for the silver jubilee of HM.

Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn of Thailand and his sister Princess Sirindhorn will be in attendance.

The Nieuwe Kerk will produce a childrens book on the Inauguration " What would you do if you were King?" !Nice!

Prime Minister Mark Rutte will press the first coin with the image of King Willem-Alexander this afternoon.

All pupils of elementary schools in the city of Utrecht get a pin today from the Orange Committee of the City.It refers to the fact Willem-Alexander was born in the City of Utrecht,and the pin is designed by Nijntje designer Dick Bruna.

Does anyone know which "throne" the king and queen will use? I've seen different ones now circulating as possible thrones.

The NOS says it will be those ones on there website:

And here it is: http://content.nos.nl/data/image/xxl.../24/499268.jpg

On the front of the coin features the text "King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands". The effigy of Willem-Alexander is not in profile, you look the king almost straight in the face. He stands under a canopy in the royal arms

Also on the front half of the text "Je maintiendrai" can be seen. The text continues on the other side, so that both sides are connected. That's according to the maker a reference to the theme of "bonding".
On the back is the text "April 30, 2013", the day of the inauguration. The coin is on the back largely filled by small faces. They represent. "The Dutch".

Secretary of State Frans Weekers mentioned, "In the design bonding, representation and encouragement play a central role. Thus empahisesing what King Willem-Alexander's reign will stand for."

Hello carlota
Ridderzaal here and I'm new on this great website/forum.
For those interested in the Dutch inauguration, nos, the Dutch News Chanel has an ongoing update on their app. It's in Dutch, but there are some great clips and photos to be viewed. Maxima, the Queen, orange events etc.
My problem is, being elderly and tech stupid, I can't seem to find how to post messages etc.
Please post the above info.
Bloemen voor u...

No,we will have to update them anyway because there will be...no doubt...so many posts here that the pages will just fly by...One of us will have to post the links to the live-stream on each page every time because we will no doubt have multiple posters asking for the same even though it has been posted time and time again.People don't tend to read on the previous page (s) all that much and rather ask time and time again.
But by tuesday there will be as many links availeble as possible besides dutch tv NOS,there's german ARD and Belgian Ëén.be ao,and ofcourse

NOS - Koningshuis a great site for re-runs..

a blogger contacted Jan Taminiau to see if he was dressing princess maxima for the investiture: extract attached below

Quote:
Just one small update to yesterday's post, Jan Taminiau press agent replied today answering my email sent yesterday saying that they don't know if he'll be dressing Princess Maxima or not, but if he is, they'll send a press release AFTER the ceremony, gives you a clue? Don't forget to vote on the thread on both your expected colour and designer!
i guess that from the response to your email is pretty likely that he was at least shortlisted to dress maxima and even created some dresses for her for the ocassion. first, because I don't believe that one week before the ceremony he doesn't know at all if he's dressing max (although she probably has commanded several dresses to have back ups - she would always have the opportunity to use them at a later stage at some other gala - and will choose among those on the days leading the ceremony). secondly, because they seem to have a plan on the strategy to do the press release, which is not something you would have if you didn't "help" at all in the preparations.

The NOS says it will be those ones on there website:

Prins kiest zetel Wilhelmina - NOS Nieuws

Look to the link in post #440. That link gives the the photo of the ''throne''. The photo published on the NOS site is the throne used ad the inauguration of Wilhelmina and stands at the Rijksmuseum. Willem-Alexander has said his throne comes from Palace "het Loo".

I am not sutre if this is the official new euro coin that will be used forthe next decades. It looks like a collectors item, but not as a euro.

Thanks for the article, my friend and I were talking about WA's inauguration the other day, and we both said that it would be great to be in Amsterdam right now. It must have a very royal atmosphere at the moment. I particularly like the big tinsel crown!

A nice thing about the Dutch abdication is that the entire nation is building up to this enormous celebration. A new king, a new age. A step into a new future.
It's astonishing how the Dutch are buying into it all and how popular the royal family is.

I passed the two gigantic crowns on the Bijenkorf department store today. The Dam and surroundings are filled with enormous flags with the logo of the enthronement on them. Most important bridges in the city have the same flags. A few trams are especially decorated http://www.flickr.com/photos/arthur-a/8676901363/ and there is even an Orange train http://www.ovpro.nl/wp-content/uploa...01-480x311.jpg.

------
And while Dutch school children forced to learn a song which is filled with spelling, grammar and style mistakes, comedienne Brigitte Kaandorp keeps it simple and receives praise for her 'Lieve Koningin' (on the melody of Jacques Brel's 'Ne me quitte pas') - and all that in correct Dutch too. And like most of us -except Daphne Deckers & friends- she does know that it is actually "Door weer en door wind" and not "Door de regen en de wind".
