It has pleased His Majesty The King, Grandmaster of the Militaire Willems-Orde, to bestow that highest decoration for brave gallantry to the Korps Commandotroepen, for their extraordinary deployment in war in Afghanistan.

In 2006 Queen Beatrix decorated a Polish Parachutist Regiment for its role in the Liberation of the Netherlands during the Operation Market Garden in 1944. The decoration is added to the regimental standard, see picture.

The ceremony in which the King will award the Korps Commandotroepen with this exceptional honour will take place on March 15th and will take place on the Binnenhof (Inner Court) in The Hague. See picture of this ceremony: picture.

The King does not look healthy. He really needs to loose some 10 kilos. He has really blown up. This while his spouse, Queen Máxima, succesfully stays so slim. Really, the King is only in the third year of his kingship. If he wants to be King for -let us say- three decades, I hope he keeps some representativity in his appearance.

In March the King will wear an uniform again for the ceremony to award the Militaire Willems-Orde to the Korps Commandotroepen. Such an overweight man in a military uniform is no sight. I really hope he (or his environment: the Queen?) take action.

I don't think the health of the King is "nonsense". I only speak out my hope that he keeps his weight under control. In my book that is no "nonsense" but something very serious. For everyone. King or no King.

I think he needs a break. The King looks tired and seems to have acquired weight: picture.

The Opening the Jheronimus Bosch Year in the Cathedral was a very serious but also a beautiful ceremony I must say. I just saw it on the NPO app.

He comes from a family that has a tendency to gain weight. Queen Maxima is said to be conscious about that and is pushing a diet regime for the entire family, including her husband and her daughters.

Yesterday, February 25, King Willem-Alexander attended the commemoration of the February strike 75 years ago in Amsterdam.
The strike was the first large scale protest against the German occupation of the Netherlands and the persecution of Jews in Europe and was held because of the riad of the 420 Jewish men around the Jonas Daniel Meijer square in 1941.
