Dutch royal family is celebrating King's Day 2020 at their home

On April 27, today, King Willem-Alexander, Queen Maxima, Princess Amalia, Princess Alexia and Princess Ariane are celebrating the King's Day at their home, Paleis Huis ten Bosch. The King's Day is one of the main public holidays in the Netherlands. However, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and the advice of the government to stay home, this year, the holiday's name has been changed as Woningsdag, or "Home's Day".

  7. Bien mignonnes les princesses dans leur petite robe avec leurs chaussures à talon dont deux compensées. La combinaison fleurie de Maxima ne l'avantage pas surtout avec la grosse boucle de la ceinture sans parler des chaussures rouges ! J’oubliais le roi à qui je souhaite un bon et joyeux anniversaire au milieu de ses femmes !!!

    1. I agree with you about the belt and shoes. The belt looks like it was thrown on just so she would have a belt when it looks so much better without one, and the shoes are very clunky.

      Delete
    2. I agree about belt and above all about the red shoes. Maxima's hair is ok today. Each one has chosen a specific style, they are all ok in casual style.

    Great picture of the family. Where have all the years gone? The girls look so grown-up and poised. I like all the outfits. I like Maxima's, but unfortunately, I can't wear anything like that. My hips are too big.

  9. Lovely photos of all of them. Happy Kings Day (or 'Stay Home' Day) to this lovely family and the people of The Netherlands.
    (PS A question: I've heard of Broderie Anglaise as also referred to as 'eyelet' fabric. I know that it has eyelets and embroidery in round patterns as part of it, but is 'eyelet' a common name for the fabric? TIA)

    1. Quelques lignes concernant la broderie anglaise "La broderie anglaise en blanc sur blanc avec ses oeillets et ses motifs de fleurs est souvent utilisée pour les vêtements, les accessoires pour les bébés et pour la lingerie. Elle est pourtant très solide et s'adapte aux nappes, serviettes et taies d'oreillers très élégantes. Et même en couleurs.
      LES OEILLETS ET LE POINT DE PLUMETIS
      En broderie anglaise, on peut broder les oeillets et les motifs de façon régulière ou varier la longueur des points afin de créer des effets de volumes et d'ombre. Pour le point de plumetis, on brode d'abord une base de points lancés, par-dessus lesquels on brode en sens opposé afin de donner du relief. Brodez les points bien serrés afin d'obtenir des formes nettes qui font le charme de la broderie anglaise" J'espère que cela vous conviendra !

    5. What a good description of broderie anglaise (that's its real name in English too.)
      OHHH Maxima that belt and shoes! What gets into you? It just spoilt totally an elegant casual suit even if I am not crazy about the suit. With just a simple pair of sandles and no belt but a pair of your ever crazy red and blacck enormous earrings you would have looked so nice.

  10. Lovely photo of the Family. Sadly the Kings day could not be celebrated with the people. This invisible virus does so much harm to humanity. We have to rethink of a new normal. I am finally over this virus, believe me it forced me to my knees. I wish everyone stay healthy.

  12. I like their outfits comfortable for a stay at home celebration.

  13. To Anon 7 29, sorry you were ill and glad you are recovering.

    It may seem frivolous but it is lovely just to look at clothes and be able to comment. I like the younger girls' dresses but the Queen's outfit is just too flowery for me and Catharina Amalia's dress is too yellow! I love the Queen's red shoes and Amalia's sandals--would prefer them as heels but wedges make sense---for her and for me! Great to see the family together for this event and dressed up for a party even if at home.

  14. Princess Catharina-Amalia's face is so special and radiant. She will be a beautiful Queen one day. The rest of the family is beautiful as well! :)

  15. They all look lovely, happy and above all, healthy
    I love Maxima’s outfit and admire that her hair looks silky and shiny.

  16. Como si no pasara nada. No viven en este mundo. Su vida es palacios y lujos Cero empatía. y visten como viejas

  17. The outfits are happy and summery, and although I think that Adriane´s dress is on the short side and Maxima´s shoes are horrid, I like this overall fun and non-matchy appearance.
    Also, interesting interior wall designs.

    1. @Vanessa - I have read that Beatrix's previous "Green Room" has been redone and is now the "DNA Room". The THOUsands of bricks on the wallpaper apparently represent the DNA mapping of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima.

      Amalia is beautiful and looks lovely in her yellow dress.

    2. Vanessa, aren't you the same person that criticized Princess Leonore's summer dress on her birthday? Apparently it was skimpy. I bet you're really conservative and wear turtlenecks everyday.

    3. To anonymous 7:02:
      No, I was not one of the many people who critizised Leonore´s summer dress.

  18. I love the outfits, but dislike the way they decorate the house especially the wallpaper.

  20. the girls all look so lovely! They are such beautiful young ladies, and all dressed so well. I'd like Maximums jumpsuit except that belt, I don't care for, just a little too big for me, but it's certainly her taste!

    1. If I have to position myself between the comment of Chel or Amelie (Anon 9:53), I am more on the Amelie side. Ariane, the youngest looks a very nice teenager.
      If I have to find a word for Amalia and particularly Alexia, the one which comes to my mind is : they are a bit "poseur" (the dictionary says that is good English). Ok I admit they still have to find their own style in public appearances. But I agree on their respective choice for their outfit, incl Maxima's jumpsuit.

  21. I personally don´t get what should be so very beautiful about them. I just don´t see it.

    4. If you don't get it Amelie, don't worry. It's not important. I've heard said (somewhere) that beauty is in the eye of the beholder - or something like that.

    5. My mother used to say: if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

    6. I'm not gonna rip anyone to shreds, but I'd like to point of the maturity level here. Or lack of it, more precisely. And I've found out that there's no point in arguing with people like that, because I value my dignity. I refuse to sink down to a lower level. Peace out:)

    7. So, notwithstanding what mothers used to say - none of you/us have EVER said anything bad about anybody. We all have different tastes and will verbalize our dis/tastes from time to time. It's just the way it is; not judging, just preferences. ~Laurel~

      Delete
    8. Laurel:
      It's one thing to have different tastes when it comes to fashion, makeup and hairstyles etc. These things can change, and people are free think differently on these things.
      But it's another thing to verbalize your distaste of more permanent things, like genes. These things cannot change, not without plastic surgery etc...

      Delete
    9. @Laurel: People are saying here that they don't find these girls beautiful, which is not exactly a nice thing to say. Especially because we are talking about children here. Critisizing adults, ok. Critisizing kids, please not. Let them be children with there own insecurities. They will be criticized enough once they are adults.

      Delete
    10. I think the purpose of a blog is to express/exchange views or opinions while always remaining polite. If it is to repeat under each head : she/he or they are nice or so nice, then I fear it will get boring. Or then we should have a website with only pictures, as some others... Perhaps just one point, not so easy to keep in mind: sensitiveness about style or color is not the same in all countries.

  23. Jumpsuit Máxima lovely. Amalia, sorry wrong dress, wrong colour. She would be a gorgeous young woman if she just would lose some weight. Karl Lagerfeld dress, less is more. The youngest is looking also very sweet in her brodery dress. Anna

  26. I love the annual photo-dates from the dutch king and his family.
    They all look soooo good. The girls really grow up very well.
    Best dressed in my eyes is Amalia, she looks fantastic, great dress in great shape and colour, it fits her perfect! She's glowing and smiling what fits her also very perfect! The shoes are very nice, too.

  27. I think they all look great. Max's joy at seeing her daughters involved in evident. They seem very close knit. All the ladies are lovely and their own personalities are coming out. The King looks good too.
