Royal The Hague, The Hague: 53 reviews and 65 photos
In the Hall of Knights is the throne that the queen uses for official speeches such as the one on the 3rd tuesday in september to open the parliamental year.. There used to be 2 thrones but when Prince Claus passed away it was considered more appropriate to have one throne instead of an empty one.
In the back of the throne is carved a 'B' for Beatrix. When she hands her reign down to Willem-Alexander the wooden piece that contains the 'B' will be replaced with one that has an 'W' on it. Cheaper then building a whole new throne.. And there is already one 'W" in storage..
