I post the link to a fabulous foto site.Courtesy to Miss Caroline Raat.It gives excellent views of Het Loo Palace,Het Oude Loo Castle(which is still in use by HM , Her Family and guests during weekends).

Although Het Loo is a State Museum now,the Dutch Royal Family still uses the Palace on several occasions,like fi the baptisings of the Royal offspring,HM The Queen's 60th birthday 6 years ago etc.
