Koningsdag, one of our favorite events, will be different just as it was last year. The whole family, WAX, MAX, and the A-Team will be visiting Eindhoven in the province of Northern Brabant, in the south of the Netherlands. There won’t be a grand tour through the city, but they will visit a high-tech center. There will be virtual visits through the city and high-tech games with the three princesses, plus conversations with the Royal Family. There will be no public appearances due to the continuing pandemic restrictions although Dutch national television will broadcast the whole event live.
Here are a couple of 2019 photos to start us off. This girl was so overcome by meeting the force that is Queen Max, she couldn’t contain herself. The A-Team stepped out as practically grown-ups and made us all realize that time marches on.
All this said, let’s not let that spoil our party week here at the blog. Spam all your favorite Koningsdag (King’s Day) or Koninginnedag (Queen’s Day) photos here. Vintage or recent, we want to see it all. What photos we get of this year’s event we can put in the comments, too, and we’ll update the post at the end of the day.
And here’s the update!
As promised, the first part of the day was spent at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven. Max, Ariane and Amalia are in Natan, and Alexia the Minimalist Rebel is in Maje.
Later the family attended the final rehearsal of the 2nd The Streamers concert at the palace Noordeinde in The Hague. The royals got the royal treatment backstage. Yes, Max is in an Elie Saab jumpsuit there.
Party on, Baguettes. Don’t worry we are back to the Cambridge anniversary party tomorrow. The fun never ends at The Bag.
