The King's Games, a.k.a. Koningsspelen, takes place a few days before King's Day, which is when the Dutch celebrate the birthday of their king. 

King Willem Alexander was born on April 27, which is when the holiday will be celebrated

On the special day, people wear orange clothes, and flea markets are held in parks and on the street.

Since COVID-19 is still going around, people will either celebrate King's Day at home or have smaller parties. 

Last year, the festivities were canceled altogether. “Given the rapid spread of the corona crisis around the world, it is only logical to cancel the usual festivities this year,” Foreign Minister Stef Blok said in a statement at the time.

The Queen even joined in on the fun, as she was photographed playing soccer with some of the tots! 

The Queen has been quite busy recently — just a few days ago, she wore a beige suit when she visited a cleaning company. Prior to that, she made an appearance at the International Theater Amsterdam.
