Apart from being a cultural historian, Luyten is also a journalist and an interviewer in the most serious political tv programme we have.

Although it is nice that the queen gets a serious biography, I think it would make more sense to write such a book about the king. It is the king who has a constitutional role, not the queen.

It's another example of the King taking a "back seat" as it is to his flamboyant and vivacious Queen. I'm taking a wild guess, a biography of Maxima would sell more copies than the same about Willem-Alexander and that's the rub, because as written, he actually has the constitutional role, the Queen is his Consort only.

I disagree with you.

Queen Maxima has had a deciding influence on her husband's character and also in defining who he is today. As a man, king, husband, dad.
She is also a deciding factor in influencing the heir.

Apart from the thumbmark she has already left of the Dutch monarchy and perhaps the Netherlands itself.
If you want to know King Willem-Alexander, you have to learn who Queen Maxima is.
So such a portrait is most interesting IMO.
