Such a sweet interview - she has similar mannerisms as her mum!

My Dutch is unfortunately, ahem, a bit rusty. But she seems like a cheerful, normal and confident little lady.

Thank you to everyone who shared the photos and videos of this year's King's Day. I've always wished that we had a national celebration on the scale of King's Day here in England, we have Trooping the Colour but it's not that widely celebrated (well, not in my area at least). They look really fun.

The AAA's are lovely, and they've grown up a lot! I think all three princesses are very pretty but Alexia is blossoming into a rather beautiful young lady. I love their little flower bracelets, they're cute details. The video of Alexia speaking with the reporters was nice too, and it was sweet to hear of her excitement about King's Day. She appeared to be very confident and sociable, she didn't seem to have a problem chatting with the reporters.

The most boring Koningsdag up to now, I am sorry to say. While I alwaye like the attendance of the Van Vollenhovens, the prominence of the triple A's irritated me. Especially Amalia and eventually I found out why. Amalia already eclipsed her father because she has the personality that -in my eyes- her father is supposed to have as a King but doesn't. He totally misses the stateliness of his mother and that is something I want to see in a King. Stately yet warm like his grandmother, Queen Juliana. He has neither.
If anything, he has converted the Royal House into a business. In Amalia I see three generations combined: stately like Queen Wilhelmina (and Queen Beatrix, who also had grandeur) and warm like Queen Juliana - she will be very strong once she ascends the Throne. With her father I miss feeling and a majestic radiation.

Tilburg is an industrial city but has some royal connotations. King Willem II of the Netherlands (1792-1849) loved Tilburg and indeed also died there. The local football club is named Willem II and they play their matches in the Koning Willem II Stadion

King Willem II also ordered a neo-gothic house. The King never lived there: he died 9 days before the house was ready. In his testament the King destined his house to become a Rijks (State Higher Civic School). Later it became a representative location for the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Tilburg. It is known as "the palace" in Tilburg but it never was. Sadly the once so lush green gardens have become the concrete roof of a giant underground parking and sadly the municipal offices have been glued to the neo gothic building...

The house of Willem II in 1962 (the city has already knibbled large parts of the gardens): picture and picture.

The house of Willem II in 2016. The city has completely destroyed the lush gardens: picture.

King Willem II also owned lots of land surrounding Tilburg, with farms. It was called Koningshoeven (the King's farms), where still Cistercian monks (trappists) brew La Trappe, the local trappist beer: picture. The Abbey is named Koningshoeven.

There is also a statue of Willem II in the centre of Tilburg: picture.

Apparently the concept of the route was leaked to the local press. Terrorist experts claim that this will give people with bad intentions a long time to make preparations.

The Brabants Dagblad claims to have the route and mentioned some (obvious) places but they did not publish a plan of the route in their newspaper. The editor claims they are concerned about the leak but that they do not want to disturb the plans.

The city emphasizes that the plans are still in concept and can and will be changed.

Are round birthdays celebrated in a special way in the Dutch Royal Family, or could be expect something in connection with the King's birthday this year?
