King Willem-Alexander of Netherlands proudly displays sweet portrait of Queen Maxima and their three daughters as he shares glimpse of his private office at The Hague

King Willem-Alexander has shared a glimpse into his private study, where he has a touching portrait of his wife and three daughters on display.

The King of the Netherlands, 56, welcomed politician Alexander van Hattem to Huis ten Bosch Palace  in The Hague on Friday as part of his efforts meet with chairmen of the fractions in the country’s First Chamber.

Following the meeting, the Royal Family‘s Instagram account shared an official portrait from the meeting – showing the two men sitting on either side of the fireplace in the King’s private study.

The royal father-of-three is seen sitting beside a framed photo of his wife Queen Maxima, 52, and their daughters Princess Catharina-Amalia, 20, Princess Alexia, 18, and Princess Ariane, 16.

In the undated image, Maxima and her daughters are all wearing white blouses and posing against a grey backdrop.

The four royal women all wore their long hair down for the photoshoot and Maxima opted for minimal makeup.  

The Royal Family captioned the image of King Willem-Alexander’s meeting: ‘The King receives for an introduction the Chairman of the First Chamber Fraction of the PVV, Alexander van Hattem, at Palace Huis ten Bosch.

‘This conversation concludes the series of receptions of chairmen of the fractions in the First Chamber. They have been received in recent months for a (renewed) introduction to the King. The new First Chamber was installed on June 13, 2023.’ 

In April 2020, King Willem revealed that a photograph of him with the late Queen Elizabeth had pride of place in his office.

One of the photographs shows King Willem and Queen Maxima laughing together while attending the Royal Ascot as guests of Queen Elizabeth in June 2019.

Another shot shows the couple posing alongside the Queen as she awards King Willem with a Supernumerary Knight of the Garter.

The event is a special honour reserved only for foreign royals at the prestigious annual Order of the Garter service.

The Order of the Garter is a a 700-year tradition founded by Edward III in 1348, and recognises contributions of great public service from those honoured – usually Lords and Ladies of the UK.

Although the Order has a limit of 24 members, excluding The Queen and Prince Charles, foreign royals have been given honorary ‘Stranger Knight’ status since 1813, with controversial recipients over the years including Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany before World War I. 

While King Willem’s office is packed full of family photographs, Queen Maxima’s appears slightly more stripped back from personal belongings.

In photographs released of the Queen working from home, she was seen chatting on a video call while in a trendy and modern room decorated with a monochrome wallpaper. The carpet, chairs and elegant desk are all coloured in a rich, royal blue.

Meanwhile the shelves of the bookshelf are a golden yellow colour, matching her gold lamp and a gold sculpture on the Queen’s desk.

The couple’s palace in The Hague had only recently been refurbished due to structural issues.

Renovations, which finished in 2019, took five years and cost €63 million (£54.96 million).
