But why did he then wear an Uniform to the Adress from the throne as Prince?

Because he then still was an active militair in the armed forces (reserve).

At 30 April 2013 the Prince of Orange became King. Article 42 of the Constitution says: The Government comprises of the King and the ministers. An active militair can not be part of the Government, which has the supreme command over the armed forces. In the opinion of the Dutch Government a militair can not be part of the same supreme command which orders and controls the armed forces he himself belongs to.

This is a change from earlier versions of the Constitution in which The King has the supreme command over the armed forces. In 1983 the Constitution was modernized: no longer The King but the Government (= the King and the ministers) has the supreme authority, which is completely in line with reality. That is why King Willem-Alexander only wears military uniforms when the armed forces are involved, as any dismissed officer is free to do.

The last active military in the Dutch Government was Captain-at-Sea Petrus Jozef Sietze (Piet) de Jong (*1915) who was minister of Defense (1957-1967) and later Prime Minister (1967-1971). When he became minister, he resigned as Chief of Staff of the Inspector-General of the Armed Forces (Prince Bernhard), as Aide-de-Camp of Queen Juliana and as Commander of the naval destroyer 'Gelderland'. He did the same as the King: as member of the Government he always wore civil. At military events he could wear military uniform.

I like it that not only the King has dressed up (jacquet), also the aide-de-camps seems to wear grand tenue. Under Queen Beatrix aides-de-camp wore (neat) daily tenue for these events.

As the ceremony in Driel commemorated the 70th anniversary of the contribution of the Polish 1st Independent Parachute Brigade to the Battle of Arnhem, President Bronisław Komorowski of Poland was present as well. King Willem-Alexander received him earlier today for a meeting:
