king willem-alexander opens council of state portrait gallery

At a private event in The Hague yesterday, His Majesty King Willem-Alexander opened the Council of State portrait gallery designed by cepezedinterieur. On display here is a series of busts of the Presidents of the Council of State since the establishment of the kingdom, supplemented with a bust of Prince William of Orange, the Father of the Nation. The series of portraits begins with the latter and continues via Kings William I, II and III and Queens Wilhelmina, Juliana and Beatrix through to King Willem-Alexander himself. The gallery can be seen in the Council of State's display window along the Parkstraat in The Hague. It is an initiative of the Council of State and the Prince William the First Remembrance Society. For more information, see the website of cepezedinterieur and the website www.beeldenvanderaad.nl
