Elections at 15:00 on Saturday 11 AND on Sunday 12 August in the PALEISTUIN.
Eight queens from ‘200 jaar Koninkrijk’ (200 years of monarchy) in the Paleistuin. All the queens, from Queen Wilhelmina of Prussia to present-day Queen Máximawill talk about their lives as queens. The Paleistuin (palace garden) used to be called the ‘Princessetuin’ (princesses garden) and this is why the queens want to fill the Paleistuin with beautiful princesses.
The chosen Princess of the Day may ride in the carriage with the queens at 16:00 to the Binnenhof for the Closing Parade and will get a princess cake for her birthday. Two other princesses will be treated to entry tickets to ProDemos’ Kinderrijk and the Ruins of Brederode where an incredible 77 little princes and princesses live. Have your photo taken with your favourite queen and, of course, there will be a group photo of all the princesses! Our royal photographer will take the most wonderful photos of this queen’s and princesses’ day!
