Of course, people were thrilled than the King was sticking up for the police force.

One person wrote, "Good to see that our king cares about the men and women who stand in the breach for the entire Dutch people! All the support they get is well deserved." while another added, "It was good to see that the king talked to our aid workers. As a Rotterdammer, I am so angry at those who made such a mess of it."

Meanwhile, his wife, Queen Máxima, was attending to royal duties as well.

"Queen Máxima speaks with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of South Africa about financial digital inclusion. Queen Máxima speaks as the United Nations Secretary-General's Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development (UNSGSA) and Honorary President of the G20 Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI)," a message read.
