The Dutch royals were in attendance at Prinsjesdag, which is a joint session of the States-General of the Netherlands where the King gives the Speech from the Throne today.

Prince Constantijn, Princess Laurentien and Princess Alexia departed from Noordeinde Palace ahead of King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima and the Princess of Orange. The speech from the throne took place in the Royal Theatre as the regular venue – the Knight’s Hall – is still under renovation. They travelled to the theatre in the Glass Coach and the Gala Berliner. It was the first time for Princess Alexia.
