CNN: Queen’s Day – Go Dutch for an alternative royal celebration

While much of the world’s attention will be fixed on a certain royal wedding in London, Prince William’s nuptials are not the only royal affair happening this weekend.
The orange craze, or “oranjegekte” in Dutch, returns to Netherlands on Saturday, when millions of revelers wearing head-to-toe orange will hit the streets across the nation to celebrate Queen’s Day.
