Quoted: Future Dutch King Willem-Alexander on what to call him

“I’m not a protocol fetishist. People can address me however they want.”

Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander in a new TV interview suggesting that he will be a more casual monarch than his mother Queen Beatrix when he succeeds her April 30. In other words, “your majesty” is strictly optional. “For me, it is about people feeling at ease when I’m with them.” (Willem-Alexander and Beatrix, above; Peter Dejong/AP)
