I was reading the news today and I suddenly saw this. I post it here as a curiosity, since it has surprised me a lot:

MADRID
Orange light on the fountain and the Palace of Cibeles in honour to the Netherlands.
They will be "dyed" this way because of the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander in the Netherlands, which will be held on April 30th in Amsterdam.
Traductor de Google

Those who doesn´t know about Madrid, Cibeles´square and its famous fountain are one of the most known city´s symbols

You know, while I knew this was happening, seeing this thread started and up now makes it all *real*. If that makes any sense and I hope it does. Anyway...

That's a lovely thing that's being done in Spain. Thanks for letting us know Annie.

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

They will move to Huis trn Bosch on a later date. But it isn't that far from Eikenhorst, perhaps 10 minutes by car.

-------
The new king will leave 'his house' the way it is. Meaning no new appointments for courtiers.

Is this their site?

Bijbelgenootschap.nl

I wonder was Beatrix involved in this organisation before her abdication?

Since king Willem II, every Dutch monarch has been patron of the biblical society.

I thought he was giving up all patronages in order to be seen as King of all the Dutch.

The events that WA and Maxima attended as CP and CPS....how will this be handled now or who will attend? They will attend functions as King and Queen with other Monarchs, so who will attend on their behalf when the functions are for the CP and CPS? Perhaps one of his brothers and their wives? My apologies if this has been addressed previously.

Some functions they will be represented by either Princess Beatrix or Princess Margriet and / or her husband,Pieter van Vollenhoven.And since Prince Maurits was appointed his Adjutant on wednesday it is expected he too will be in attendance on behalve of the King at various occasions.Constantijn and Laurentien won't do a second Margriet & Pieter in terms of assistance,they prefer to keep their life as it is,only with exceptions being made and under review as they occur.Eventually Maurits and Marilène might represent more while the older generation retires more and more...all being in their 70's at present.And it will take at least another 9 years,as we all know,before any of the three Princesses are availeble for solo representation.For all the Obvious reasons Friso and Mabel will not represent.
