Only 65% now... It was not so long ago that the support was around 85-95%!
So far Mr Wilders has never attacked the King. He has continuously attacked Queen Beatrix, especially because she is one of those "nette linkse mensen"...

at the right side of the page there's a small box under "selecteer je taal" , if you choose "engels" there, it translates the page

other option is google translate:

Some translations in google are a bit wobbly. I have repaired it a bit for a better understanding:



"Jááhááá!"

Amalia yelled this several times in response to photographers who simultaneously called out her name during a photo-shoot in Lech. (2006)

"Uh oh... do I get a new one?"
Amalia - after she felt a bit too hard on a egg (during the colouring of Easter eggs) and it smashed into pieces on the ground. (2006)

"All wave now!"
Amalia called this during a photo-shoot on her sister Alexia's second birthday. Her father bursted out in laughter and added: "Genetically determined." (2007)

"I know, but I am just Amalia"
Amalia's response to her father, when he once asked her if she knows she's a princess? Willem-Alexander told this to journalists during a press briefing. (2010)

"Maybe I can buy something, but that would really be a waste of my money"
Amalia was asked what present she would buy for her mother. (2011)

"How many years will you do it?"
Amalia against her father when she was told that her grandmother was going to abdicate as Queen. (2013)

"No way! I am not wearing that!"
Amalia about the design of her dress for the Investiture. Couturier Eduard Vermeulen then suggested that every princess could draw their own dress. (2013)

"Where should I look? I do not have eight eyes!"
Amalia from the train, to photographers who shouted "This way! This way!" (2013)

"Foul start!!!"
Amalia at King's Day when she could fire the start shot on the running track and one of the athletes left too early. (2014)

"I can not judge because I have not seen everything"
Amalia asked which part she liked at King's Day. (2016)

I had seen a video as well, so I knew that all of them had attended. As I couldn't find any other gallery, I had expected and hoped this one would get updated..

It is election time. Queen Máxima is being attacked by the Christian Democratic Party (!) for having a double passport. Their leader talked to radio1, where he held a plea for abolishing the possibility for Dutch citizens to have double passports.

Quite a curious election strategy of the Christian Democrats. I would think the last thing they want -one day before the elections- is to attack the most popular person of the country. The prime minister has had a very few days.

The monarchy does not need enemies with friends like that.

But what is the problem of Queen Maxima having a double passport?

It is just the principle. Second or third or four generation Dutch-born and Dutch-raised citizens still having a double citizenship and seeing the long arm from Ankara or Rabat reaching them is seen as problematic by some political parties. When the Turkish President Erdogan claims "It are MY citizens, it are MY voters, it are MY Turks" he is simply 100% correct. For an example in Germany we are speaking about 3,5 million (!) Germans with also a Turkish passport. More and more politicians feel that this double nationality leads to undesireable situations.

When then a politician says: "We should no longer accept the existence of a double nationality" then the consequence indeed could be that Queen Máxima, still a citizen of the Republic of Argentina, has to loose her Argentinean nationality. Not because there is any problem with her but as a matter of principle. The law is applicable for anyone, Queen Máxima included.

Note that the proposal does not enforce someone to give up their Turkish or Moroccoan nationality. They can choose for their Turkish passport if they want, with as a consequence that they loose their Dutch passport (and loose EU-citizenship as a consequence). 99% of all these folks will count their options and choose the Dutch passport and that means that finally they are 100% Dutch citizens and that they are no longer of interest for Ankara or Rabat. The proposal of this politician is relatively moderate in comparison with other politicians (like Geert Wilders from the PVV) who wants every citizen with a double passport doing a crime, no matter how petty, loose their Dutch citizenship and kicked out of the country.

Isn't it the case that she has double nationality because it is impossible to renounce Argentinean nationality?

Het is op dit moment dan ook niet mogelijk voor de koningin om afstand te doen van haar Argentijnse nationaliteit, zo erkent Buma.
