  Palace Noordeinde
by Mique
 
 

The front courtyard opens on to Noordeinde, the street after which the palace is named. On the street side the yard ends in railings and a gate made as part of a major restoration in the 1970s. The gate was modelled on the one erected here by Stadholder William III in 1689. Surmounted by the royal coat of arms, it is opened only for official occasions, such as receptions, "Prinsjesdag" - the day of the Queen's speech and the State opening of Parliament - and the presentation of letters of credence by newly appointed ambassadors.

The offices of the Queen are located in the left wing of the palace.
