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:

Laurentien's dress is from Hardies couture in The Hague, with Missoni fabrics. Her hat is made by Eudia.

Behind Beatrix is Martine van Loon-Labouchere, former grand mistress of the court.

A picture report from the NRC:

It seems that the king and queen arrived at the Hall of Knights in the pouring rain.

The King is expected to visit the UN soon. He will be the first Dutch monarch who will adress the assembly.

It seems that Marianne Thieme is using her outfit to protest against TTIP, the trade agreement with the Us which will force us to import chloride chickens and other poisoned foods.The outfit of the minister of education was a 'high tech outfit' designed by the University of Eindhoven. Her shoes come from a 3D printer.

Maxima's gown is stunning!

Queen Maxima looked great. Jan Taminiau makes amazing gowns for her. The dress is exquisitely feminine.

She wears same hair decoration at the back of her hairdo. She has done the same also in previouis years. I find it more a pity that the King can not wear his Uniform anymore like he did as Prince of Orange.

He can wear his uniform, no one stops him. The King seems to have made a deliberate distinction in civil and military events. This one, an address to the Parliament, of course is purely civil.

I do miss the presence of Beatrix and Margriet at the Prinsjesdag event.

She was there, with members of her old Household, at the steps of the former palace of Prince Maurits of Nassau-Siegen, the Mauritshuis, see picture and another picture.

Only strange that as Prince of Orange he wore his Uniform also to this civil Event. And it looks strange with the Queen wearing her Order sash but not the King as Head of State.

Duc_et_Pair 09-15-2015 05:19 PM

I agree but he is there as member of the Government and most likely he wants to stress that constitutional aspect. An uniform adds colour and decorum, I agree: see picture.

What does someone see when he/she stands in front of the gates at Noordeinde Palace?

The Guard of Honour (a detachement of the Royal Netherlands Air Force) is preparing in front of Noordeinde Palace

The commander of the Guard of Honour informs an Aide-de-Camp that the guard is ready

An equerry (in red) and a riding servant (with a blocker for the wheels of the carriages)

Is the King of the Netherlands not Head of the Armed Forces vis a vis the Queen of the United Kingdom et al, the King of Spain and the King of Norway? I can't think of any other reason why we never seem to see the Willem-Alexander in uniform anymore.

Article 42 of the Constitution:
The Government comprises of the King and the ministers.

Article 97 of the Constitution:
The Government has the supreme authority over the armed forces.

In contrary to many of his colleagues, the King is an integral part of Government (art 42). The same Government which holds the supreme authority over the armed forces (art 97). In Dutch eyes it is not possible to be a member of Government ánd to be in the armed forces which is subjected to that Government.

Any Dutch military whom wants to become a member of Government has to lay down all military commissions. That does however not mean that these retired military do not have the right to wear an uniform. The King can wear an uniform if he likes but he clearly makes a difference in events with a military character or a civil event (like Prinsjesdag).

Here King Willem-Alexander wears a naval uniform: the golden galon stripes indicate the rank of an admiral, the royal insignia (an orb crossed with a sceptre and the sword-of-state) shows it is His Majesty The King. See picture.
