The Netherlands: A Royal History

picture taken by Ann Debbaut at Madame Tussauds in Amsterdam

This wonderful picture of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands was taken
by my lovely colleague and friend, Ann Debbaut, at Madame Tussauds in
Amsterdam.

As I'm born in Belgium, I often have the chance to visit our beautiful neighbor:
The Netherlands.

Already from the very start of this blog in 2012, I met some other interesting people
online and offline as well, who have their own interest in royal history.

People like:

- Oscar Meijer from the Dutch blog De Staat van Oranje
- De Oranjes
- Netty Leistra from the site Netty Royal
- Linda & Jolanda from Royalty Twins
- Wills Vendrig from the site Koningsfan
- Royaltykids


And many more, who I can't mention all!

But let's return to the very beginning of All About Royal families and to the
amazing royal history of the Netherlands.
