royal dutch family

anonymous asked:

can you post some pics of tiaras worn by ladies with short hair?

There are a lot of tiara wearers with short hair especially if we consider all of them from the 1920s until now.  I just chose one person from each of the current European monarchies but there are many more.

Queen Paola of Belgium

Princess Benedikte of Denmark & Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg

Hereditary Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein

Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg

Princess Charlene of Monaco

Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands

Queen Sonja of Norway

Queen Sofia of Spain

Queen Silvia of Sweden

Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom

Koningsdag

In the Netherlands we have this holiday on 27 april and we call it koningsdag (kingsday). On that day we celebrate the royal family with some tradtions.

This is our royal family

From left to right it is: our king Willem Alexander, our queen Maxima and their kids, Ariane, Amalia and Alexia.

Here are some traditions,

We all dress in orange, because it is our national color and eat a lot of orange colored food.

We have flea markets all across the country.

At those flea marktets we usually also have some traditional games such as koekhappen. The goal of that game is to eat a cookie of a wire above you without using you hands

There is also this game, it is called spijkerbroekhangen. (jean hanging). The goal is to hang as long as possible to the trousers. Sometimes we even place a little pool of dirt underneath the jeans.

I hope you liked this post and as we say in the Netherlands, tot ziens!

Here is a bonus picture of our king throwing a toilet bowl.
