I suppose the event is not interesting enough for the Henk and Ingrid's to watch. Hence the government finds it more important to enable these kind of people to go to the racing circuit of the patjepeër cousin of the King, where they are free to go by the 10.000s at the same time. The priority of this government always been to demolish anything that has to do with our history or culture -left wing hobbies as the prime minister called them once.

Patjepeer cousin...I keep that in my already extremely rich vocabulary,haha!

Well he is,and I can´t stand the nonsense in difference,in this case.....football stadiums fuller to full,but no Prinsjesdag parade..add that to the questioning of our history by...by ..by what shall I call them without getting banned here...Haha!!Everything you can imagine,because really,they lost all credibility and respect,all.

To be fair: Prinsjesdag is about the Government informing Parliament and to present the new State Budget, hoping to obtain parliamentary consent in the months after. No more, no less.

Prinsjesdag has never stopped, also not during lock down. All other public events including sports, culture, have been cancelled. So the comparison with football is not one-on-one.

And oh yes: at least Bernhard van Vollenhoven earns his own money. He now even owns a yacht wharf which designs and produces yachts, see his site, with himself as Founder: https://waterdream.nl/

Real estate, Formula One, the Media Park, a yacht builder, an ICT infrastructure company, what not for Bernhard? The real patjepeër (parvenu in French) cousin here is the other way: WA von Amsberg, purely living on taxpayer money.

It seems that the king has a new hair style.

The king and queen -unsurprisingly- will attend the Grand Prix in Zandvoort this weekend:

Stro haar?
I think WA’s hair is to dry for this sleek look or for his beard for that matter.

But the enthousiasm these two ooze always makes up for their hairstyles.

Let’s hope they will witness a great succes for their compatriot Verstappen at Zandvoort this weekend.

While the incrowd criticizes Bernhard van Vollenhoven (owner of the race circuit) from all sides, but columnist Marcel van Roosmalen wrote "Bernhard is Orange enough to know what the masses want".


And see, it is like King's Day at the Grand Prix Formula 1: https://www.1limburg.nl/sites/defaul...?itok=TNYr0Ezk Some 300.000 visitors are expected: each day 70.000 on the racetrack and 30.000 in and around Zandvoort-at-Sea.


Undoubtedly the King visiting his cousin's feestje (little party) will give him loads of critics from the us-knows-us. But it is true: the masses speak with their feet and the Oranges know it. Already in the 17th C and all centuries after the "Regents" complained about the Orange Mob or the Orange Fever which the Stadtholders and the Kings used to set the "upper classes" for a fait accompli.

The former Kindergarten of King Willem-Alexander and his brothers, for years in use as a venue for the local scouting boys, has burned down last night.


The former little school is completely secluded in the forests between Soestdijk Palace and Drakensteyn Estate (where the princes lived in their youth).

On RTL it was said that the date of the Dutch visit was planned to avoid a meeting with the Sheikh of Dubai without offending anyone. It is also the reason why they are now in Abu Dhabi and not in Dubai.

The editor of royalblog noted that the king and queen met 'prince Hamdan'. But by the looks of it it is not the crown prince Prince Hamdan bin Mohammed. Perhaps prince Hamdan bin Rashid?

Edit: they did meet the crown prince -> https://gulfnews.com/expo-2020/news/...day-1.83433226
