The Dutch King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima return to the Netherlands after commotion arose over their ‘little respectful attitude in these corona times’.
Barely a few hours after the government plane with Willem-Alexander and his wife Máxima had landed in Greece, the Dutch royal couple returns to their home base. Their trip had caused such a stir in the House of Representatives and in the media that they say they have no other option anymore.
The Dutch political parties debated fiercely on Friday about the departure of the royal couple. ‘Travel as little as possible, also during the autumn holidays’, is the general government advice in the Netherlands to contain the corona virus. The fact that the king does take the plane for a holiday to Greece could erode the support for the measures, it was said. ‘The government’s corona rules apply to everyone. It is undesirable if there is a discussion about this, ‘suggested CDA MP Harry Van Der Molen on Friday in the Lower House. The image that is now emerging raises questions for many people. ‘
‘Dent in image as a connector’
“We will abort our holiday,” said the Dutch royal couple via the Dutch Government Information Service. ‘We see people’s reactions to media reports. And they are intense, and they affect us. We do not want to leave any doubts about it: in order to get the coronavirus under it, it is necessary that the guidelines are followed. The discussion following our holiday does not contribute to that. ‘
NOS reporter and royalty watcher Kysia Hekster believes that this is ‘a huge dent in the image of the king as a connector’, she says to the NOS. ‘Apparently he didn’t think it was such a good idea and that it would have such a look. He didn’t estimate that correctly. ‘
In August there was already a fuss about a holiday in Greece by Willem-Alexander and Maxima. Then the couple had themselves photographed with a restaurant owner without respecting the rules of distance. ‘In the spontaneity of the moment we did not pay close attention to that,’ it sounded via the official account of the royal family on Twitter.
