Dutch King’s golden coach under fire over racism

June 18, 2020

According to Dutch News:

The Dutch royal family’s 19th century golden coach, used for ceremonial occasions such as budget day, has again come under fire for its ‘colonial’ painted decoration.

The king’s coach has come under fire because of its painted panel where people of Indian and African origin are pictured bowing to a white woman on a throne.

More than 5,000 people have signed a petition to put the golden coach in a future museum of slavery, once its €1.2m renovation is complete.
