According to expert of the Royal House on Spanish public television, King Felipe and Queen Letizia will attend the celebrations this weekend

Spanish Royal House has included it in its agenda for the press, warning that the celebrations are not open to the media.

Hola speculates with the possibility that Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia accompany their parents. Infanta Sofia celebrates her 10th birthday on Saturday, and Monday and Tuesday are holidays in Madrid.

I honestly hope, hope, hope, that we will see pics of the event and the guests (I am a bit nervous, as it is said, this is a PRIVATE PARTY).....
Any information about the dresscode?

No we know very little. That part of the celebrations also received next to no press attention which makes me fear it may be rather private indeed. All the attention in the media went to the interview, kings day and tonights dinner at the palace. Not to the private celebrations in the weekend. There seems to be little demand from the public, I have not read or heard anything and I suspect most people feel that the king is entitled to a private party.

According to Bunte the royals will use the ballroom of Noordeinde ánd the stables for the party on saturday evening/night.

Frederik and Mary of Denmark are also due, as there are no events scheduled for the weekend.

The Kings of Belgium and Haakon and Mette-Marit of Norway should also be present. In his official agendas nothing is scheduled for the weekend.

The 60th birthday of Queen Beatrix and the 40th birthday of Prince Willem-Alexander were also private but we have seen guest arriving and/or a group picture.

Originally the party would take place at the back cour of Noordeinde Palace:

The Royal Mews at Noordeinde are an excellent alternative for the after-banquet party, seeing the cold weather when the cour is covered:

Or when the manege is used:

That wedding diadem is a copy. The base is not the same as the real one.

The palace will stay open for ten days longer than planned, as the interest of the public has been higher than expected.

At 21:45 the king and his guests will go to Dam square to make a photograph. Anybody who wants to can be joining them tonight for the photo. Sadly I will be at the cinema .

The photo will be posted on the website of the palace 50 minutes later.

The 150 lottery-chosen citizens really will have a joyful and unique experience! What a nice idea of the King.

#BIG #BIRTHDAY #BASH Haakon, MetteMarit & Martha of #N are among #royals who will celebrate #WA50 in #NL this weekend

Translated by me: Feirer kongelig bursdag i Nederland | Kongebloggen - Kjell Arne Totland
Quote:
It's a royal friend's party this weekend - and this time totally private! The young Dutch royal couple have invited their royal friends from far and near to the birthday celebration - in and outside The Hague.

According to well-informed sources, the program includes a boat ride, black tie dinner, church concert and lunch.

Both Norway's Crown Prince couple and Princess Märtha Louise are on the fashionable guest list.

I usually don't follow the Dutch monarchy, so I don't know.

"Private" does not mean secluded. It means that the King organizes his own event, invited his own guests. In public events there are the politicans, the officials, the authorities. From all private events in the past we have seen pictures but of course no live tv broadcast how Máxima eats her salmon mousse and smoked trout...
