Me too. I thought Greece imposed some restrictions on travel. I guess the Netherlands isn't in the black list (they imposed restrictions to Portugal and I am glad that I went to Greece last year)..
I wonder if they had a lovely summer, Greece is a very beautiful country

The difference of course is that they fly in a special jet, only accessible for a limited number of persons, with the royal couple in their own "suite" including bedroom and douche. No queuing at the check in, at the gate, during the boarding and inside the plane.

The King's compartiment:

Quite a difference with the Ryanair or Easyjet type of holidaymakers.

I'm surprised the Dutch government doesn't also have a smaller jet for the King to use, isn't this rather large for the King and his immediate family to go on holiday using? Heck this is the same size jet that takes 100 odd tourists on holiday usually. I don't have an issue at all with them using a jet for security and even privacy reasons but wonder if investing in a smaller one when a jet this size isn't needed wouldn't also be good? Or maybe they do in which case forget I said anything lol.

There are two Gulfstreams as well: a new Gulfstream 650 and an older Gulfstream IV. But I think these are too small for a family of five, seeing the spacious interior lay-out, with all the luggage and the necessary staff and security aboard.

The Boeing 737, usually a plane crammed with holidaygoers, only seats 26 (!) passengers due to the lay out with big seats, bedroom, douche, boardroom, etc.

Boeing 737 with "uneconomical" spacing (this is the compartiment for the lesser gods)

King Willem-Alexander with Queen Maxima visited the island of Milos

They took walks in the Kleftiko area on a speedboat driven by King Willem-Alexander himself, and then toured the alleys of the island. Although their presence was very discreet, some locals recognized the royal couple and asked to be photographed with them, receiving a positive response.

Probably they stayed back at the house? They are old enough not to need to join their parents when they decide to do a boat trip for the day.

Indeed, I would expect that too.

Did the maternal grandmother return to Argentina? Because otherwise she may be in Greece too.

Yes, Carmen Cerruti returned to Argentina in June (or late May/early July). This was confirmed by Máxima in the short press talk after the photo call at the start of their holidays.

I was thinking that the girls might have spend sometime with their paternal grandmother in Italy as well - but she already returned to the Netherlands, so that most likely wouldn't be the case right now (unless their cousins are in Italy with their parents - in that case they might still have been invited to spend some time with them).

Maxima looks great in a bikini. Willem is so helpful.

Surprised that the AAAs aren't there too as they normally go to Greece as a family. Perhaps due to Coronavirus the family thought it would be best if a minimal amount of them went?

Maybe the girls are in Greece but just didn’t go out on the boat that day. I guess they may have stayed at the villa by the pool?

Did they have to self-quarantine in Greece upon arrival in the country? I think Greece set some rules for some European countries upon entry, but not sure about the rules they set for The Netherlands. I think Greece also asked for a negative Covid-19 test, right?

I distinctly remember at the same age as Amelia and Alexia are not wanting to do anything my parents did especially if it was wandering around places (and probably these days anytime separated from their mobiles/internet is another disincentive!)

The Royal couple posted a message in Twitter that they should have complied with the rules in Greece.


"‘In media verscheen een foto waarop we te weinig afstand houden. In de spontaniteit van het moment hebben we daar niet goed op gelet. Dat hadden we natuurlijk wel moeten doen. Want ook op vakantie is naleven van coronaregels essentieel om het virus eronder te krijgen’-WA & Máxima"


""A photo appeared in the media in which we keep too little distance. In the spontaneity of the moment, we did not pay attention to that. Of course we should have. Because compliance with corona rules is also essential on holiday to get the virus under it "-WA & Máxima"

It's not necessarily about not complying with the rules in Greece but in general not keeping their distance - as everyone in the Netherlands is encouraged to keep 1,5 m distance also when on holiday.

Tbf they are not alone in forgetting. Its just their mistake gets put on social media. But I guess all those single instances add up. Since face masks were introduced in supermarkets here, there seems to be awful lot of people forgetting here.
