Kingsday 2017: Only Orange!

Kingsday 2017! Our King Willem-Alexander turned 50 yesterday. He celebrated his anniversary in Tilburg, a city in the south of The Netherlands. How did we all celebrate this special Orange day?

Team NL honoured the King with 16 great pictures in one Instagram post. Have a great anniversary to our most loyal (and Royal) fan! 

Dutch Eventing rider and Bavaria 0.0 Eventing Team founder Tim Lips wishes the King an happy 50th birthday! Cheers!!

Olympic Champion on the open water Sharon van Rouwendaal throws back Thursday to her golden Rio Olympics adventure! 

Olympic Champion on the open water Ferry Weertman goes back to his last King's visit. To honour his 50th birthday Ferry did a special swimming training: 50 times 50 metres with a start each 50 seconds.

Thumbs up for Queen Maxima! She enjoyed being in Tilburg and looked amazing as ever! 

Retired hockey player Ellen Hoog dressed up in Oranje all day!!

As the weather forecast was not the best and rain was in the air, Dutch tv host Nicolette Kluijver hoped for some orange rain drips! 

Credits to the most famous inhabitant of Tilburg, Dutch singer Guus Meeuwis, for ending the Royal visit in a very festive way!
