A total of 3,429 people have been awarded honours in the traditional honours list published on the eve of Koninginnedag (Queen’s Day).
Among the famous faces being honoured in this year’s lintjesregen – rain of ribbons – are singer and television talent show judge Angela Groothuizen, actress Carry Tefsen and journalist and talk show host Frits Barend.
As usual, nearly all the honours went to people who carry out voluntary work, reports news agency ANP.
