Princess Laurentien wears a powder pink dress of Hardies, The Hague, with the pink stones that Q. Maxima usually wears.

The Queen in a Burgundy dress of Taminiau with long hair and a weird piece of cloth on top. Perhaps to make the ball gown more suitable for the day. She wears a new combination of the Ruby devant corsage & brooch.

The King kept his beard. According to the NOS the Royal Mint and the Postal services will not change the design of coins or stamps and will wait to see if it will last.

IMHO the diction of the King has improved quite a bit in comparison with his first speeches from the throne.

What a load of crap in the DM. The King and Queen held their heads bowed down for most of the day???? They were only greeting a regimental standard, good heavens.

I always love the carriage used for Prinsjesdag and the pomp and circumstance in general! I think the Dutch RF are one of the only other RFs who have quite a pompous ceremony for the opening of parliament aside from the British RF.

The video did not catch indoors proceedings.

The selected parliamentarians forming today's "Commission for the In- and Extrance" are awaiting the arrival of the royal cortège: https://www.tweedekamer.nl/sites/def...?itok=Jfc5cR7E

The dresscode is jacquet for gentlemen and "dressed" for ladies: https://nos.nl/data/image/2019/08/30.../2048x1152.jpg

The King's Speech:
https://editorial01.shutterstock.com...-10416203s.jpg

The chairman: "Long live the King!" (All: Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!) :
https://editorial01.shutterstock.com...10416203ad.jpg

Back on the palace:
https://editorial01.shutterstock.com...10416188al.jpg

The King has authorized the Minister of Finances to offer the Note on the State's Finances 2019 and the State Budget 2020. The Minister contraseigns the Royal Command before it is sealed in an orange ribbon and placed in a special suitcase:

The Minister on his way to the Second Chamber to offer the Budget 2019:

This is factually what all the day and all the fuss is about, the financial backing for the policy outlined in the King's Speech.

In Scotland that paper is known as the Daily Lie.

Due to the current virus situation the next Prinsjesdag on September 15, 2020, will not take place at the Ridderzaal as usual but at the Grote Kerk (Grote of Sint-Jacobskerk) in Den Haag.

I wonder if they will arrive by car or with a carriage because that would attract a crowd. For the same reason I wonder if they will have a ‘balcony scene’.

Is the Grote Kerk a redundant church now ?

With all the protests of Black Lives Matter we will never see the Golden State Coach again, in original state that is.


There were longer protests against the depicting of "Homage of the Colonies" on one of the side-panels, depicting men of colour: http://www.geschiedenisbeleven.nl/wp...p-de-koets.jpg


When the restoration of the Coach started, it was said that it would be restored in original splendour without the intention to change this panel. The Coach is already longer subject of discussion.


When the restoration does not change this, I see no other than a museal destination for the carriage.

Yes, like many big churches in inner cities, it has become redundant.
For the simple fact that the inner cities have changed into shopping and office areas with lesser population than it once had. So the parishes often had difficulties to maintain such enormous monuments with a relatively small number of parishioners.

What a pity for such a historic building like the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam.

It will be interesting to see how Prinsjesdag will look inside the Grote Kerk.

The Inner Court complex will be restored the coming years. They were already thinking to have the Address from the Throne to be held in the Great- or Saint James' Church before all this Corona came up.

In the past it has been organized in the former ballroom of Stadtholder Prince Willem V and in Brussels when Belgium was still part of the Kingdom.
