Koningsdag 2020

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus Crisis, the annual Koningsdag (King’s Day) celebrations marking the birthday of King Willem-Alexander were cancelled but that didn’t stop the Dutch Royal Family from marking the special day at home at the Huis ten Bosch Palace.

In the morning, the King gave a short speech, and throughout the day, King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima, the Princess of Orange, Princess Alexia, and Princess Ariane  joined various online activities, including calls with care staff from Maastricht UMC +, Anky van Grunsven, a vlog workshop by Enzo Knol, and opening a digital market. The day ended with the National Toast in the afternoon, when other members of the Dutch Royal Family joined digitally to celebrate the King.
