Several new photos released to mark five years on the throne for Dutch King Willem-Alexander



Several new photos of the Dutch Royal Family have been released by the Government Information Service (RVD) in celebration of the five year anniversary of being on the throne for King Willem-Alexander on 30 April. They were released yesterday, the day before his 51st birthday today.

All of the images were taken by Erwin Olaf in March at the Royal Palace of Amsterdam and includes photos of the King, his wife, Queen Máxima; and their three daughters, 14-year-old Princess Amalia (the Princess of Orange), 12-year-old Princess Alexia and 11-year-old Princess Ariane.

In the formal photos of the King and Queen, the Royal House of the Netherlands said, “The King wears the Knight-Grand Cross Military Order of William and Queen Máxima wears the Grand Cross in the Order of the Dutch Lion.” Her Majesty is also in the Dutch Sapphire Tiara. All of the pictures can be seen below:
