Thanks for the photos!
King Willem-Alexander was very serious. Queen Maxima looked nice. At the same time, I fully agree with Marengo noting that the golden dress fades into the background.

Love Maxima's dress! Also think that Laurentien looks fabulous .... her hat however is a bit too casual for the lace dress.

Why did Princess Beatrix not attend?
Is it because it would be an issue for her personally?
Or does she have the impression, that it looks strange for all people from the Netherlands, if she always sat on the throne and will not sit there any more?

It is customary that the abdicated monarch does not attend the event.Queen Juliana and Queen Wilhelmina also remained absent after their abdications.

Other absentees: Princess Margriet and Pieter van Vollenhoven, who attended the ceremony 52 and 46 times respectively.

Don't like Laurentien her hat, however I think the Queen looked fabulous! Amazing! Her dress is royal, chique and absolutely extremely beautiful. Can't be happier.
I really like the King's words towards his mother and the Dutch population because of the death of his brother. They became quite emotional at that point of the speech.

It was great to see the images and video of King Willem-Alexander's speach from the throne on Prinsjesdag. I notice that when the king and queen walked towards the thrones, the same fanfare was used as the one at the inauguration ceremony back in April. Does anyone know any more about this piece of music, who wrote it etc??

Marengo 09-17-2013 06:35 PM

It is a new piece created for the enthronement ceremony. The composer is Willem van Merwijk and the piece is called 'L'Entrata del Re'. For Queen Beatrix's inauguration Jurriaan Andriessen already composed the 'entrada della regina'.

In a previous post, there is a photo of a yellow/gold standard (flag). I noticed in Prince Claus' funeral as well as others, the family will stop and bow toward this flag. What is it and what does it represent that the family would bow or respond that way? Does anyone know?

It is Orange and the Banner of the respective regiment or other parts of the Forces on duty that specific day.It is tradition to salute the Banner.Always.

Same you see with either incoming or outgoing State Visits,what follows first after arrival is the inspection of the Guards of Honour,and both the incoming as well as the hosting head of State will Always bow for the Banner of the Honorary Guards.

Was HH Prince Maurits Van Orange Nassau Van Vollenhoven in attendance in his new role as Adjutant to the King? I did not see him in any of the videos but had thought it would be a natural event for him to attend in his new role.
