The day’s celebrations begin with a royal procession from Noordeinde Palace to the Ridderzaal (Hall of Knights), where the members of both houses of parliament and other invited guests are assembled. Here, the Queen delivers her Speech from the Throne, the text of which is written by the government. Then the budget for the coming year (the Budget Memorandum) is presented to the House of Representatives by the Minister of Finance.
