The Dutch royal family have once again posed for their annual summer photographs, but bad weather forced the king, queen and their three daughters to move the session from the beach to the Noordeinde palace in The Hague.
The summer photo session marks the start of the royal family’s summer break and is meant to ensure that their actual holiday remains free of Dutch paparazzi. They also traditionally pose in the Austrian alps while on a winter sports trip.
However, this year the state information service RVD said the sessions would only take place when all members of the family are together. Alexia, their middle daughter, is currently attending Atlantic College in Wales.
