My bet is that the PM advised against going on a holidays days after the government called on the Dutch people to seriously restrict their travels. But Willem-Alexander is stubborn and, at times, arrogant and he thought he could get away with it.
Politically, he can, for now because the PM took the fall, as the PM is always responsible for what the King does. However, the PM is also the person who has warded off all sorts of financial investigations in the wheelings and dealings of the RF. And if that protection is no longer present, the financial future for the RF could change considerably in the years to come.
Starting with a strong political hint that the royals would be wise to check how the Belgian neighbours have handled the finances of the Duchess of Brabant.
