The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

Den Haag

on July 1, 2014

 

Scan - Version 3This beautiful cultural card comes from Marlies in the Netherlands. He tells me this carriage, in The Hague (or Den Haag), is used on the third Tuesday of September to transport the King to the Houses of Parliament for the opening of the parliamentary year. The current kind Willem-Alexander has only made this trip once so far, as he was only coronated in 2013. Great card!
