Because the Queen is stepping down and leaving the Kingdom to her son.

Unfortunately for Prince Charles, it's his neighbors.
So yeah, Holland gets a King again after a century with a Queen at the helm.

How lovely for the them :)

Now, you would think, why do the UK not go down the same route ... but then it would be worse than putting Nobby on the throne. Let's face it, compared to Prince of Wales, Willem-Alexander
is a regular hottie Smiley: clown

Not that we judge on looks alone, but come on .... long, long live the Queen of England.

Mehh, Benelux monarchy has no staying power - abdication is pretty much the norm, whereas our inbred German monarchs keep going beyond their mental capacity as a tradition.

They're all family though. At least the Dutch royal house is connected to the British royal house.

Because Queen Victoria was a sausage fiend and her spawn went on to be every royal house in Europe.

She just really really really loved her husband. Smiley: lol

I bet she regrets spreading all that hemophilia, though.

"The Principality of Orange (in French, la Principauté d'Orange) was (from 1163 to 1713) a feudal state in Provence, in the south of modern-day France, on the left bank of the River Rhone north of the city of Avignon.

It was constituted in 1163, when Holy Roman Emperor Frederick I elevated the Burgundian County of Orange (consisting of the city of Orange and the land surrounding it) to a sovereign principality within the Empire. The principality became part of the scattered holdings of the house of Orange-Nassau from the time that William I "the Silent" inherited the title of Prince of Orange from his cousin in 1544, until it was finally ceded to France in 1713 under the Treaty of Utrecht. Although permanently lost to the Nassaus then, this fief gave its name to the extant Royal House of the Netherlands by virtue of the imperial immediacy it used to enjoy. The area of the principality was approximately 12 miles long by 9 miles wide, or 108 sq. miles."

So he's the Prince of Euro-Orange County, got it.
