King's Day 2017, in pictures

It's been a special King's Day in the Netherlands this year. Willem-Alexander turns fifty in 2017 so this year's annual celebration really was a party to remember. The King of the Netherlands headed to Tilburg with his family for a day of fun, music and dancing. It was a picture perfect event, in part because the Dutch Royal Household chose to launch its Instagram account that day sharing loads of fabulous photos with us as Willem-Alexander marked his 50th birthday. The party carries on this weekend as the Dutch King welcomes 150 people with the same birthday as him to the Royal Palace in Amsterdam for a dinner while Crown Princess Victoria has confirmed she'll be joining what's expected to be a royal packed weekend of private celebrations, starting on Saturday. It's one busy birthday so let's look back at how it got started and enjoy King's Day 2017, in photos....

The House of Windsor at 100: daughters of the Crown

On July 17th 1917, George V issued a royal proclamation changing the name of his royal house and family to Windsor. It was the beginning of dynasty that would set records and change the concept of modern monarchy. And it's a house built on and by women. We've already met some of them when remembering the consorts, now we turn to the royal daughters. Four women have been born to the monarchs of the House of Windsor, all of them hugely important. As we mark the centenary of this special dynasty, here are the daughters of those who have worn the Crown.

The Queen's January

January is always a low key month for the Queen. She stays at Sandringham throughout the month and we mostly get to see her as she heads out to church. But while the public appearances have been as restrained as usual, Elizabeth II has found herself hovering close to the headlines in what's proved to be a busy month for the monarch.
