Future of the Dutch Monarchy
As a simular thread has been introduced in other forums we might as well start it here.
What are your thougts on the future of the Dutch monarchy? What changes do you expect in the future or what traditions do you want to keep?
Since the monarchy in the Netherlands is strong and can met widely approval, I expect almost no changes.
When The Prince of Orange assumes the kingship, he can use the 'brand new' (restored) Royal Palace Amsterdam, he can use an almost completley restored carriage collection, inclusive the Golden State Carriage and the Royal Hearse, he can live and work in two excellent royal palaces (Huis ten Bosch and Noordeinde) and use the fabulous Royal Palace Het Loo in Apeldoorn.
The Court Organization is modernized and updated. All processes are precizely described in blueprints and is certified with an ISO90002 certificate.
The future King has a strong, well-educated and experienced spouse, who will probably bring Latin flavour in the proceedings at the Court. Where the Oranges have a bit of restrained attitude towards glanz und gloria, I expect the spouse of the future King to upgrade or re-instate the old glitz back at Court.
With other words: the future is sunny and bright.
As the Monarchy,or better The House of Orange,is a deep rooted institution here in the Netherlands I don't expect any changes at all in respect of the form of State for the future,not near,and not the distant under Queen Catharina-Amalia.
Besides that,imho,Alexander and Máxima are second to none in the field of education,experience and involvement with modern global issues,their intellectual approach of tackling issues combined with charm,passion and humour,elevates them to another level then many of their collegues,however nice,or older,they may be.
