I'll try to translate it, my English is not very good, but I hope you'll understand it:

(written on april 30)

Today it was Koninginnedag. The day started with much rain. I had spent the day in Middelburg, on the Markt.
First we saw the Queen. She looked very happy.
Then came Prince Constantijn, I've shaken a hand of him.
And then: Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima! First they went to the people at the opposite of us. Then they watched to the football next to us. We called Máxima and the came to us! I had given her pics of her and her youngest two daughters at the christening of Eliane van Vollenhoven (March 28 this year). She said: 'That's so nice. Awhhh, this one is for Alexander!' She called Willem-Alexander: 'ALEX!'. Máxima said: 'Awh, Ariane still has a red spot of her wound. And yes, Amalia wasn't there. I have got lovely daughters, haven't I?' We asked to Princess Máxima if she ever looked at my website. She grabbed me and said: 'Yes, of course! I know you very good!' She went on a picture with a girl and she said; 'Iris (FanvanMáxima) have to take the picture!' Then we asked to Willem-Alexander if we might take a picture of him and his wife with me. He called; 'Máx! We going on a pic with Iris'

Thank you for posting your own photos. I really enjoyed viewing them.

IMO, the Van Vollhoven daughters in law are always better dressed than Queen Beatrix's.

Just wondering do the girls usually attend the balcony appearance. I remember last year prior to the awful events there was some speculation as to whether or not we would see them. Fanvanmaxima what a great experience for you congrats!

The only people who appear on the balcony are the adult royals. Last year there was meant to be an extended program due to the celebration of Queen Juliana's 100th birthday - there would have been a defilé at Palace Het Loo, but the program was cut short (for obvious reasons). If I remember correctly, I believe the girls would have attended the defilé with there parents, which is the only time they have been said to attend any Koninginnedag event.

And as for security.We can't take any chances anymore ever after Apeldoorn two years ago,unfortunately.I think everybody agrees on that.Last year saw a marvellous and old-fashioned Koninginnedag in Zeeland again,and the security in place then didn't spoil anything of it,lets hope and pray for the same again next week.

Queensday last year,to get in the mood...:
