The following video shows the fireworks display held at Het Loo Palace.
The Palace name translates as "the woods palace" and was built-in the Dutch baroque style completed in 1686.
The once home of the House of Orange Nassau which today, following the abdication of Queen Beatrix in April 2013, in order to enable her to enjoy what remains of her life and she was aware that her son, King William-Alexander was ready to rule.
Unlike in the UK, the Dutch Monarchy is largely tasked with ceremonial duties and as such, the jewels, Palaces, Silverware, etc used during state visits are kept for the reigning Monarch separate from their personal belongings and wealth so that the ceremonial things are always in place.
These fireworks were for the Unicef meeting in December 2008.
