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.
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.
