Are there any plans for celebrations for the 50th birthday of the Queen?

If there wasn't a pandemic, they would organize a large celebration. However, given the mistakes they made earlier I expect them to be very careful with any plans.

Would be a perfect time to take the 2021 Christmas Card photos with the wintry weather.

No guesses needed :) It was already known that he proposed while ice skating on the pond in the garden of Huis ten Bosch; I am sure he picked the exact same spot for this picture 20 years (and two weeks) later.

Máxima recalled that it was rather cold that day and that she was looking forward to the second part of the Dutch ice skating tradition (hot chocolate).

I did not know there was a tea pavilion at Huis ten Bosch as well. What a nice setting.

I hardly could recognize Maxima.

But what a nice picture and a nice memory from one of their biggest days.

Queen Máxima's 50th birthday will be commemorate with new stamps featuring her in 1999 (when Willem-Alexander and Máxima met; a private picture), at the coronation, and with her husband and mother-in-law at one of the Appeltjes van Oranje-award ceremonies.

Coins, notes and stamps are meaningless these digital days. I also do not see any imagination or design in that stamp anyway. The days are long gone in which the Netherlands Postal Service issued great designs.

Apparently the princesses didn't really enjoy their private tv-show last Wednesday (which was broadcasted yesterday evening). According to several people on Twitter they looked rather bored (I didn't watch yet, so cannot confirm).

They are teenagers, chances are that they were bored at some point.
And they are too young to fake convincingly otherwise.

No big deal.

That was part of the tweets: that people were happy to see that they were normal teenagers

Others said that their teenagers would have been on their phone within 2 minutes

I was bored as hell too. Insead of a uncomplicated festive birthday party it was -as always- presented with a Calvinist sauce, as la Máxima being an "ambassador" for more music in classrooms. Look at our gracious Queen, ow ow, what a great lady to make convenants with various parties to bring music in all our life, blablabla. No wonder the girls had a very hard time not to look on Instagram or TikTok for real amusement.

King Willem-Alexander recently got his vaccination (he said so today during his visit in his home town). He didn't specify which type he received; so the media are speculating whether he received 'Janssen' (also known as Johnson & Johnson) which is assigned to those born in 1967 - or a different one because the king said 'first vaccination' which doesn't apply to Janssen that only requires one shot.

Message from King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima because of a journalist who was shot.
Quote:
“We were deeply shocked by the news that journalist Peter R. de Vries was shot. He and all those dear to him are in our thoughts. Journalists must be able to do their important work without threat and freedom. We feel connected to everyone who is committed to the free press in our constitutional state.”⁣

- WA and Maxima
