Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien have arrived:

The King and Queen have arrived at the Hall of Knights and greet the regimental standard of the Marines' Corps bowed down for them:

The King stated that this was a Prinsjesdag "with an edge of mourning" because of the nearly 200 Dutchmen who died when their plane was shot above Ukraine:

Thank you. In the light it looked like one that she's worn in the past. I like it along with Laurentian's purple ensemble.

I love my Max and I love my Max in red ... but, somehow it just seems too much. Perhaps she could have done without the red gloves and red shoes?

I agree. Some pictures of the overlooked part as today is focussed on the King and Queen: the surrounding ceremonial:

The ceremonial procession must a visual feast for all avid Dutch Royal watchers,after the British State Opening Prinsjesdag is my favourite .I also really like the Ridderzaal building and its rich history.

Oh, I would say they run neck and neck. The pagentry is magical and gives the country a reminder of who their royal family is and how it affects their democracy.

(It's also not bad for the tourism trade!)

For me personally, both events are neck and neck in terms of being visual feasts! I think the Dutch seems to have more pomp and pageantry visible outside including the Golden Coach and live reporting of the Dutch Royal Family leaving Nordeinde etc, whilst the British have more inside, with the Crown, regalia, robes and processions inside the houses of parliament.

It was again nice to hear the King's fanfare as he entered the Ridderzaal!

Traditionally only members of the Royal House, from the age of 18, do attend Prinsjesdag.

At present there are only a handful members of the Royal House being 18 years and older:

HM The King
HM Queen Mxima
HRH Prince Constantijn
HRH Princess Laurentien
HRH Princess Beatrix *
HRH Princess Margriet*
Professor Pieter van Vollenhoven LL.M.*

* Princess Beatrix has abdicated the kingship and together with her also her sister and brother-in-law have slowed down their public agendas.



The dresscode was jacquet (civil) or grand military tenue. The King and his brother were in civil wear, in jacquet (= morning dress). In combination with that grand decorations are never worn. In their lapels, the King and the Prince wore miniature versions of their orders, a so called bton. When Queen Mxima and Princess Laurentien were in normal day-dress, they would have worn these btons too. But they were in long day dress and then the grand decorations can be worn.

On the picture below you see an Order (Officer in the Order of Orange-Nassau). Such an Order is effectifely only worn on a military tenue or when attending a white tie event. Besides it, you see a bton, a miniature. That can be worn in the lapels or on a neat dress when attending more formal events: http://www.eindhoven.nl/upload_mm/4/...llimage_ko.jpg

In this picture you can see the btons in the lapels of both the King and the Prince: http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/K...N1VHN8T6qx.jpg

In 2012 the (then) Prince of Orange appeared in military tenue, then grand decorations can be worn. It gives a more complete image indeed: http://www.haagsefotos.nl/html/prins...g-2012-113.jpg

Apparently they are expecting horrible weather tomorrow.

As usual the budget was already leaked a few days ago. So the king will not be telling anything new.

It is the last time we will see the Golden State Carriage as the carriage will be restored the next 3-4years. I wonder if there will be protestors as recently the carriage became a topic for discussion as one of the panels depicts the Dutch virgin being handed riches from coloured figures, embodying 'the colonies'. Depending how fierce the discussionw ill get the next years, the carriage may be retired to a museum for good.

The glass carriage is IMHO much more elegant. Queen WIlhelmina disliked the pompous golden carriage but still alternated each year between the golden- and the glass carriage.

There is the urban legend of the 'oranjezonnetje' (little orange sun); quite often when bad weather is predicted some rays of sun appear when the RF steps outside. So let's hope for that .

No matter how bad the weather will be: the golden carriage can and will be used:
