Queen Máxima (50) and King Willem-Alexander (54) took part in "NLdoet" - the volunteer day in the Netherlands - over the weekend. The motto was: cleaning, tidying up and cleaning up, whatever it takes. Sooner or later it also brought the Royals to their knees.
Volunteer Day in the Netherlands: Máxima and Willem-Alexander Lend a Hand
Queen Máxima and King Willem-Alexander showed a completely different side of the Royal family at the Volunteer Day of the Netherlands. Instead, the royals left their elegant robes in the closet and instead wore T-shirts, jeans and sneakers. The couple kept things tidy around the Pauluskirche and the Kulturhaus Cultuurhuis De Paulus in Oegsgeest.
The beautiful Queen used a power washer to clean and loaded soil in the garden. Meanwhile, her husband King Willem-Alexander took care of the interior of the culture house.
There he used a cleaning rag to keep the furniture clean. The Royal surprised the Netherlands by getting on his hands and knees to clean deeply.
The "NLdoet" is two days of action in the Netherlands, from May 28th and 29th this year. For the 17th year in a row, people from all over the country got involved in this volunteer event organized by the Oranje Fund. Queen Máxima and King Willem-Alexander truly tidied up the culture house and impressed the public with their everyday attire and cleaning skills. The Dutch Royals really took the work head-on!
