Majority of Youngsters against Financing Royal Family

A poll among 1,500 young people under the age of 20 found that 80% are in favor of the Netherlands having a royal family. However, 58% think that taxpayers' money should not be spent on financing their costs. One-third of the youngsters erroneously think that the Prime Minister, Jan-Peter Balkenende, is the head of the Dutch state, rather than the Queen.
