From the fifth floor of a new H&M shop on Dam square in Amsterdam you have a great view on the Palace. I have never seen it from this point so high and so close. It is complete restored outside and inside, stones are washed and repaired and it looks fresh again.
The tympanum is white again with gold-leaf. The expectation is that when the palace is ready our queen will resign and her son will be king. The accession to the thrown has to take place in the nearby New Church and the new king will walk form the palace to the church. So we wait and see.
