Kingsday year 2019 King's Day came from Queen's Day and Princesses Day ...
The forerunner of the King's Day is Queen's Day, everyone is well-known. Queen's Day is derived from the Princess's Day, which originated on the fifth anniversary of Princess Wilhelmina, August 31, 1885. Partly due to the efforts of the Liberals, there is a national festival where national unity is central. After the death of King Willem III in 1890, Princess's Day was succeeded by the celebration of King's Day.
What grew into a true children's party. After more than fifty years of rule, Queen Wilhelmina (1880-1962) found it in 1948. This also moves the celebration of Queen's Day from 31 August to 30 April, the birthday of Queen Juliana (1909-2004). Not only did the date change but also the attendance of the royal house was received by King's Day. It was Queen Juliana who received the flower shelter at Soestdijk Palace and became the center of the day.
