Re: Bear Hugging and Kick boxing Dutch King
Fortunately the genes of prince Claus seem to be stronger than those of his father-in-law. All three of his sons are/were faithful to their spouse.
Im not that much bothered by the king celebrating with athletes.
it's harmless and not stuck up. That is what he always set out to be like. Remember the interview before the abdication? So Beatrix knew in advance. Had she been really horrified she could have carried on hoping for a shorter reign of her son or even handing over directly to her granddaughter.
So while the King's way of doing things is different from how his mother did things im not convinced she thinks it's that bad. Mother and son are two different characters of different generations to each their own.
Oops Catherine, not all dogs are called Bello ! In this case it was not the queen he bearhugged, but th Formula 1 driver Max Verstappen...
I missed these events in the news, but I suppose one could be happy that the woman he was bear-hugging was his wife!
After spending more than a month on holiday it seems the King had some difficulty returning to royal decorum this weekend... bear hugging Max and trying out his best kickboxing manoeuvres with Rico.... I could hear Beatrix's teeth grinding all the way from Salzburg
