Blog refuses to remove photo of prince

Shock blog GeenStijl is refusing to remove a photograph of crown prince Willem Alexander and princess Máxima taken by mobile phone as they were shopping at an Apple store in New York.

The website says the demand by state information service RVD to remove the photo is ‘intimidating to say the least’.
