    His Majesty King Willem-Alexander IV - And his wife Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau, Mrs. Van Amsberg.
    And of course their children, Catharina-Amalia, Princess of Orange, Princess Alexia and Princess Ariane. Amalia is the youngest heir to the crown, currently worldwide, with her 9 years of age. She is also the first 'Princess of Orange' in our Dutch Monarch history.

    We do and it goes back in history for 200 years or so.
    "The Kingdom of the Netherlands has been an independent monarchy since 16 March 1815, but has been hereditary "governed" by members of the House of Orange-Nassau since 1559, when Philip II of Spain appointed William of Orange as stadtholder. William became the leader of the Dutch Revolt and the independent Dutch Republic. As stadtholder, he was followed by several of his descendants, and during the 18th century, the function of stadtholder developed into a hereditary head of state of the thus "crowned" Dutch Republic. The last stadtholder, William V was succeeded by his son, William I, who became the first king."

    And the vid is still there, just somehow clraik messes the link up. :c

    Replace the ** by d Z without spaces if you want to see.
    Or just look for 'The Netherlands has a new King'

    Also fun, this is something you might just only see in the NL; Our King and Queen going on stage with Armin van Buuren to celebrate.

    @Mouse,

    AvB may not be the King of NL, but he's the King of Trance.
    Royalty shakes hands with royalty.

    (though secretly my loyalties lie with FC)

    lol at the ensemble behind AvB as he plays though, they are like,
    "Wtf is this? What is this music? Ah well, keep it together, smile and keep it together!"

    Actually AvB and our King are friends in rl, going back way before this.
    They have been on stage with him before, when he wasn't our King yet. He just is inclined to show everyone in NL he loves a good party, King or no King.

    And what do you expect ... AvB is Dutch, as are many of top House/Trance DJ's. Of course he is one of the kings.
