She wasn't scheduled to attend, so I don't think that anything is wrong.

In previous years there's always been only one other member of the family attending besides Princess Beatrix: Prince Constantijn in 2017, Prof. Pieter van Vollenhoven in 2016, Princess Margriet in 2015.

I like that WA is wearing an orange tie! Good to see the Koningsdag celebrations starting - it's that time of year already.

I think that Queen Maxima is wearing the same red barret as she wore in 2004 in Groningen while princess Alexia is wearing the denim Natan jacket of that year.

Does it ever rain on Kings day? It looks to be a perfect day weather wise in Groningen!

It never seems to rain on this day - what a colourful event and great to see the Dutch Royal Family amongst the crowds!

Ah, I always love to see photos of the annual Koningsdag celebrations. It's great to see the family getting involved with the activities and I like the idea that they have different performances and stalls for them. It's a lot different to other monarch's birthdays which normally consist of some waves on the balcony.
Haha, I agree with those who have said that the weather seems to favour Koningsdag. Mother Nature must be a fan of the DRF

Of course it does.
Video from rainy queen's day in 2010.

According to this article; no rain on 60% of quuen's/king's day over the last 10 years.
Most rain in 2010 (see above). In rainy 2016 the family got lucky; no rain for them but rather cold.
