Byebye Queen’s Day…hello King’s Day

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

It has been a special Queen’s Day this year, the last! 😉

The Netherlands welcomed its first male monarch since 1890: King Willem-Alexander! One of consequences of it is that one of the biggest public holidays in Holland, Queen’s Day, will change name and date; King’s Day will be celebrated from coming year on April 27, Willem-Alexander’s Birthday.

As you can see in the YouTube clip below; the country can expect a new style of ‘royal leadership’ from the King (monarchy 2.0? ) )…a dancing King instead of a dancing Queen, nice!
