"Prinsjesdag (Prince's Day or Budget Day) represents the start of the new parliamentary year on which the reigning monarch of the Netherlands addresses a joint session of the Dutch Senate and House of Representatives in the Grote Kerk in The Hague," a description of the holiday reads. "Prinsjesdag or Prince's Day is held every year on the third Tuesday in September. It is an important day in Dutch politics because His Majesty the King reads the Speech from the Throne that outlines the government policy for the year ahead."

"Prinsjesdag is more than a political and economic event, however. It has great ceremonial significance. Prior to the Speech from the Throne a royal procession moves from Noordeinde Palace to the Ridderzaal in The Hague. The King waves to the people from the Golden Coach. It is a happening that has thousands of people lining the route," the note continues.

However, since COVID-19 is still a problem in the world, there is no audience, and there will be no traditional driving tour.
