Why does the plaque say "6 May 2020"? Was this a COVID postponement?

Well spotted! I couldn't find any information about it, but I think you could be right, that would make sense!

The court does not provide an explanation and neither do the local newspapers, who seem to have copied the communiqué of the palace. It it was a COVID related postponement -which is indeed likely- I wonder why it was not inaugurated in May 2022, as most restrictions were lifted.

It might have just been hard to re-coordinate with the Canadians, is my best guess.

It's just strange because I remember watching the Princess's lockdown/commemoration video from right about when this event was apparently supposed to be happening.
Yes that would be my guess too. I imagine one year ago it was still more complicated to plan due to restrictions in cross-atlantic travel. Apparently Canadian representatives were present: a delegation of 40 active Canadian servicemen.

I've noticed Princess Margriet often wears that lace style of glove. Are those a fashion choice or are they supportive for her hands?
In the past she has had quite some trouble with her wrists, supposedly from shaking too many hands. So it could be that.
