Confidence in the Dutch king and queen is falling after the corona crisis

Where almost 80% of the Dutch people were still in favor of the monarchy at the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander, this month 10 years ago, this is now only more than half. In addition, the annual NOS King’s Day survey shows that confidence in Willem-Alexander as king is not recovering. This confidence showed a significant drop during the corona crisis, when it fell from 76% in 2020 to 47% in 2022. This year this is slightly less and fell to 46%.

Queen Maxima

The Dutch have slightly more confidence in Queen Máxima, almost 60%, but the Dutch are also less satisfied with her performance than before. In 2020, more than 80% of the population was still satisfied with their hair, in 2023 this has fallen to 64%. However, a large majority believes that she has been of added value in the last 10 years in the reign of Willem-Alexander and has also left her own mark on it. The report mark of the king and queen also fell slightly to 6.5 and 7.3 respectively.

The significant drop in confidence in the royal family has leveled off somewhat and is now at 55%, with much more support among the elderly than young people. This decrease also fits in with this time, in which there is less support for institutions among citizens anyway. Incidentally, the royal house receives even more support (almost 40%) than, for example, national politics (17%) and the media (23%).

Less compassionate

A majority of the population also thinks that the king has grown in his role (60%). However, only 4 out of 10 Dutch people think that he has really added value to our country and knows how to connect people, with an equal number of people also thinking that the royal family has been discredited more often in these 10 years than in the years under Queen Beatrix. Another striking result is that people think that the king is less and less compassionate, from 67% in 2020 to 37% in 2023.

Princess Amalia

People feel more understanding and sympathy for Princess Amalia and many Dutch people see qualities in her that will make her a good queen, such as “committed and compassionate”, “close to the people” and “intelligent lady”. 75% of people say they would understand if she didn’t want to become queen because of the threats she receives from the criminal world. Due to the threats, Amalia has been living at home for a while now and is therefore unable to participate in student life in Amsterdam. According to 4 out of 10 people, the government should do everything possible to achieve this.
