Who knows what the day will bring? Koningsdag is always a party, and always a surprise. We just hope to see a good contingent of the Dutch royals! This year they will be visiting the festivities held in Rotterdam.
Het Koninklijk gezin is onderweg naar Rotterdam! Zij beginnen daar hun wandeling in de Afrikaanderwijk in Rotterdam-Zuid. Op hun route zien zij Rotterdam in al haar veelzijdigheid: verschillende culturen, kunst, architectuur, geschiedenis en toekomst. https://t.co/1ADUsme4lG pic.twitter.com/pgFUUDCTYW

2017, Max shooting hoops!
2019, Amalia getting in on the selfie action!
2019, an overwhelmed fan!
2016, let’s all boogie!
The King and Queen have arrived! The Queen is in the ‘colors of Rotterdam’. Her dress is an asymmetrical piece by Natan. As are the shoes.
My initial impression is that we have turned a corner on about a decade of flowing prints. Check out the wall of royal lady pantsuits in solid spring colors. No Princess Alexia today, but she is probably hunkered down with her books since her school days in Wales are wrapping up. Amalia is in Marina Rinaldi and Ariane’s suit is by Max & Co.
Ariane is showing off the family’s love of a statement earring here. I am impressed that she has managed the same blue for her shoes, clutch, and earrings. One of the many brunette brides of the House of Orange, Princess Marilene (in Max Mara), is in the middle.
Ariane managed a bit of blue in her headband, too!
I don’t have an ID on this ensemble (ETRO, it’s of course Etro, folks), but do we need one? It’s peak Laurentien.
The extended family is as enthusiastic as the main branch!
Prince Maurits and Princess Marilène 🎉

I’ve said this many times on this blog, WAX loves being King. Today, the citizens of the Netherlands love him back.
It’s a street party full of love for the Oranges.
You know the drill – we’ll be around with this year’s photos as they become available. In the meantime, chat among yourselves or drop your own favorite past Koningsdag photos in the comments.
