It hurts to have betrayed your trust in us. It hurts to have betrayed your trust,” said the Royal couple.
“Even though the trip was in line with regulations, it was very unwise not to take into account the impact of the new restrictions on our society. the king in the video message.
Last week, there was a fuss about the journey of the royal family, because the cabinet had urged the Dutch not to go on holiday abroad due to the increasing number of corona infections in the world.
Prime Minister Mark Rutte also went through the dust. He admitted last Sunday that he had been aware of the King’s vacation plans, but he said he realized too late that this was not really possible.
