Declining Sympathy for Royal Family
In a poll taken by the TNS NIPO firm on behalf of the EO radio station program “Blue Blood,” it was found that among 37% of Dutchmen, sympathy for the royal family has declined. This is due to a great extent to bad publicity concerning Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Maxima’s holiday villa in Mozambique and public debate on the income of the royal family. According to 72% of the 800 people interviewed, Queen Beatrix should have suggested freezing her income. Ninety percent think that the royal family should pay income tax like all other citizens.
