King of the Netherlands

King Willem Alexander, Queen Maxima, Princess Alexia, Princess Ariane and Princess Amalia have appeared on the balcony of Amsterdam's Royal Palace to greet their eager public.


Willem Alexander has been sworn in as King of the Netherlands following the abdication of Queen Beatrix.

He became the country's first King since 1890 when his 75-year-old mother Beatrix signed the abdication deed earlier on Tuesday April 30, 2013 after 33 years on the throne.
