The podcast series Through the Eyes of the King, in which Willem-Alexander looks back on the past ten years as king, has been made into a book. Princess Amalia also contributes to the publication.
In addition, there are contributions from people close to the king, such as astronaut André Kuipers and former President of the House Gerdi Verbeet. They give their view on the kingship and ask Willem-Alexander a question.
“Precisely because of the opportunity to reflect, I am even more excited to enter the next ten years with good courage and a lot of energy,” says Willem-Alexander, who was inaugurated as king in April 2013 and thus succeeded his mother Beatrix. .
“Those years have gone so quickly and it is so wonderful to be able to serve the Netherlands from the monarchy, that I am really looking forward to the next ten years. As far as I am concerned, they could go a bit slower.”
The book contains the conversations that Willem-Alexander had with Edwin Evers in the podcast Through the Eyes of the King. This covers events such as the celebration of 75 years of freedom, the MH17 disaster and the corona pandemic. The book will be published on November 28, 2023 by Meulenhoff Publishers.
