People across the Netherlands took to the streets Friday night and Saturday to celebrate King Willem-Alexander's birthday. By 4 p.m. on Saturday, only a handful of atypical arrests were announced by authorities.
A chilly, windy King's Day Eve could make way for a better-than-expected King's Day across parts of the Netherlands, the country's official meteorological agency KNMI said on Sunday. Monday morning will likely be dry nationwide, with western parts of the country getting sunshine thanks to breaks in cloud coverage.
Inspectors from the Netherlands Food and Wares Authority (NVWA) found that one-third of all the food served on the various markets during the King's Day weekend were not served in compliance with hygiene regulations.
The Mayor of Amstelveen, Fred de Graaf, has ruffled a few feathers after a YouTube clip appeared in which he seems to be touching the butt of Queen Máxima during a tour of the city.
The weather for Saturday's celebration of King's Day is predicted to be mild, with temperatures of 17 to 21 degrees. During the day, it might become cloudy during the day and the afternoon and evening may be interrupted with a few showers.
