Princesses will not join parents during first King’s Day celebrations

King Willem-Alexander’s three daughters – Amalia, Alexia and Ariane – will not be part of the royal group celebrating the first King’s Day event on April 26, the state information service told royalty magazine Vorsten.

The king will visit Amstelveen and De Rijp in Noord-Holland for the inaugural King’s Day event.

The celebrations will usually take place on Willem-Alexander’s birthday – April 27 – but because that falls on a Sunday this year, they have been brought forward to April 26.
