The events yesterday were WONDERFUL. What an amazing idea by the King to invite all those citizens to the palace! I'm sure they'll remember it with joy for the rest of their lives. And that group picture in the square! So so cool and funny. This is really how you give a modern approach to monarchy, so kudos to WA and Max for the amazing way in which they planned the festivities. I wish other monarchies would make similar parties (though I can't picture anything like this in my country no matter how much I try )


Hola has speculated they may bring the girls along. It's a holiday weekend in Madrid, no school for Leo and Sof either Monday nor Tuesday.

I think that it was also suggested that Victoria and Daniel could take with them Estelle at least? Maybe the invitation was for all their royal friends with their kids. That would be pretty great, all the new young generation also partying together
Apparently today they had a sports day in celebration of his birthday. (with a party tonight) So that would be kid friendly!

Where can I see live streaming on the net?

Yes, why not, most royal kids are around the same age and its Sofia's birthday today. The kids can enjoy themselves in privacy, I hope we get pictures of the adults
I'd expect WA to invite all those of the former CP generation, some of now Kings like WA (Spain, Belgium) some of them not (Denmark, Lux, Sweden, Norway).

The 150 guests in the Royal Palace, enjoyed for the first (and probably last) time ever at a royal gala banquet. It was a fairly simple but excellently executed menu:


- A tompouce of salmon mousse with smoked trout and a sauce of crème fraîche


- Baked steak of beef with baby-chicory, haricots vert, potato-croquettes and a tarragon sauce


- A merengue with roasted hazelnuts and a creamy caramel sauce


- Mokka (= coffee with chocolats)


The wines were:


- Saint-Aubin Premier Cru "Le Charmois" (a white Bourgogne) from Domaine Lamy-Pillot 2009


- Château du Tertre 2005 (a red Margaux)


- Champagne Veuve Cliquot Brut - Carte Jaune

I've read on Twitter that the foreign royals are staying at Noordeinde Palace so we won't get pictures of them arriving

Let's hope someone in the royal court will have mercy of us, poor royal watchers, and release at least a group picture

No it was the weekly program Blauw Bloed and the broadcast came from a side entrance to the Royal Mews at the compound of Noordeinde Palace. It is secluded. The royal guests apparently walked from the palace through the park to the Royal Mews.

This afternoon there was a sports day at the very windy beach. A camera from far captured the royals in 3 or 4 different teams (judging by the colours of the sport suits) and they had to fullfill a sort of hindrance parcours with water plays, skippy balls and that sort of things. A luxe big boat was in the water, probably for undressing, a hot shower and the well-earned brunch.

The King has been very open all week and only this day he wants to celebrate with family and friends. Tomorrow there will be a brunch at De Horsten, the royal domain where the King's private villa is located. It is onlu waiting for a group picture or so, that will possibly the only visible part of this evening. The editors of Blauw Bloed have checked social media, but it remains silent on this, as if the Dutch understand the King wants one event "entre nous" as they themselves also wish for their family and friends.

I respect that the King wants a private event with his family and friends and I like how so far the media has respected that but on the other hand, its hard for us royal watchers not to get a glimpse. I hope a group photo will be released.

Do we know if the kings daughters joined today and if other royals brought their children along?

King Felipe and Queen Letizia went by car and they have been photographed more easily than other guests who were on the buses.

Since we've only seen photos of the King and Queen of Spain, can we assume that others such as Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary stayed at the palace?

Okay. Makes sense. Thanks Lula. So I guess kings and Queens were transported by cars and all others by buses? If that's the case though, we should also get photos of King Philippe and Queen Mathilde.
