Few surprises on Budget Day

The traditional elements of Budget Day – Prinsjesdag – will remain: the coach processions, the speech from the throne, the finance minister’s state of the economy speech and the balcony appearence.

The government understands that in tackling the government’s finances it is asking all Dutch people to make sacrifices, queen Beatrix said in her annual speech from the throne.

After the speech, the queen and the rest of the royal family returned to the Noordeinde palace in The Hague, where they made the traditional balcony appearance.
