The third Tuesday in september, we celebrate ‘Prinsjesdag’ (Princes’ day) in the Netherlands. It is the opening of the parliamentary year. The King and Queen make a tour in the Golden Coach through The Hague, from their palace to the Ridderzaal (Knights’ Hall), where the King reads his address from the throne. Right this moment I am working on illustrations about the King – here you see my sketch of the Golden Coach.

Het is Prinsjesdag vandaag, de opening van het parlementaire jaar, met de rijtocht in de Gouden Koets en de troonrede in de Ridderzaal. Toevallig werk ik op dit moment aan illustraties over de koning – hier is een schets van de rijtocht in de Gouden Koets.
