Thank you Lucien, for disclosing us the lyrics of the Dutch National Anthem.
I've always adored the emotional and somewhat melancholic melody of your Anthem.

Thank you,you're welcome.The Anthem was written by Marnix of St.Aldegonde during the time of the reformation in 1574 I believe,in support of his friend The Prince of Orange.It is the worlds oldest known National Anthem

Mr. Pieter van Vollenhoven, due to an infection in his knee, will only be present at Veenendal.
Princess Anita will be absent, due to pneumonia.

The traditional Freemarket in the City of Utrecht already started last night at 18.00PM,a tradition since long.Thousands clean up their attick and sit & sell for 24 hours amid an unbelieveble fun atmosphere.

I agree it must look silly to our foreign friends here,but many if not most do wear Orange,and I mean ORANGE from head to toe on Queensday...regardless what shape and size,Orange it is..,always!.

And then there is the caf called the "Barking Fish" in the Jordaan area of loveble Amsterdam that has a pic of a member of the RF each year,this year it is a portrait of HRH Princess Amalia that adorns the complete front of the (popular) place:

BTW: Pieter van Vollenhoven will not be in attendance in Rhenen due to an infection in his foot..He wll however be in attendance at Veenendaal to at least walk the last stretch of the route.

HH Princess Anita will not be in attendance as she suffers from a pneumonia...hmm,that is the most occurring sort of illnes here at present,or so it seems,having just recovered from one myself...

Beautifull!!!Thank you so much!

It is such a wonderfull warm and sunny day here today,and all are in such a joyous mood,it's bliss!

HM and the RF are about to arrive at the 2nd leg of the celebrations in the town of Veenendaal,where,tradionally one of HM and the RF's most loyal subjects is awaiting HM with liquorice again,always very very much appreciated by HM.Oscar,we here all wish you a wonderfull Queensday in Veenendaal!It has become a tradition since decades that Oscar awaits HM and the RF at about the end of the route in the last of the two places to be visited.HM is since long very keen in spotting Oscar and greeting him wholeheartedly while accepting the liquorice...and...that is happily accepted by the other members of the RF as well,and by the time all are back in the Royal bus and it starts driving,the liquorice is gone...vamos..

In her word of thanks for all the warm welcomes and activities Her Majesty also said;"It is a pity and sad that our family isn't complete today.But I'm very gratefull for all the warmth and wishes we have seen and heard here today and I will pass it on." (to Princes Mabel that is-).Thank you all so very much.

Tonight at 22.55PM:Podium,with the Queensday Concert from Noordeinde Palace,Ned2.

Love Maxima's look today from head to toe! Just stunning.

Laurentien for once ... looks good.

What's the story with Aimee's outfit and shoes? Not good ...
