Noordeinde Palace in The Hague is the King’s place of work. The palace is the property of the State and was placed at the disposal of the head of state by Act of Parliament. The palace complex also includes the Royal Stables, and the palace gardens contain the Royal Archives, which are the property of the House of Orange-Nassau Historic Collections Trust.
Noordeinde Palace has been at the centre of various momentous events in the lives of the royal family. Princess Juliana and Prince Bernhard and Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien were married from the palace. After their deaths, Queen Juliana (2004), Prince Hendrik (1934), Prince Claus (2002) and Prince Bernhard (2004) all lay in state there.
