The main departments of the Royal Household are located at Noordeinde Palace, where the Queen has her offices. The Royal Archives and the Royal Stables are situated in the Palace grounds.
The Court is the heart of the Royal Household. It has some 35 members divided between the Civil Household and the Military Household. The term "household" comes from Article 41 of the Constitution, which reads: "The King shall organise his Household, taking due account of the public interest".
The Grand Master manages the affairs of the Court and Royal Household. The Chief of the Military Household is his deputy.
