What is Kingsday?

Kingsday was named Queensday before; we celebrate the monarch from the Netherlands. Queen Wilhelmina celebrated her birthday on the 31st of August, Queen Juliana on the 30th of April. Queen Beatrix her birthday is on the 31st of January, but she decided to celebrate her birthday on the birthday of her mother, Queen Juliana.

On Queensday (the 30th of April) 2013, our King, Willem-Alexander is inaugurated as the King of the Netherlands. From this moment we do not celebrate Queensday anymore, but Kingsday on his birthday, the 27th of April.

Every year during Kingsday the King, his famous wife Máxima, three daughters and his mother and family will visit a city in the Netherlands.
