As well as the protection services at the royal palaces in our country, Marechaussee personnel also carry out ceremonial duties. In their ceremonial dress, they could, for example, form a guard of honour during special events.
When foreign heads of state are received at a Dutch airport, Marechaussee personnel form a guard of honour at the aircraft. They also provide special escorts for the vehicles of foreign dignitaries.
In time-honoured tradition, Marechaussee personnel take part in the military ceremonies in the Residency of The Hague. For instance on the occasion of the official opening of Parliament, but also when new foreign diplomats come to present their Letters of Credence to the sovereign.
