Past weekend, before Christmas, there was the story WA got rid of the beard. WTH, just when we Dutchies (and others) got used to it.

But at a closer look it was apparently a misunderstanding. For their Christmas whishes the royal family used an older picture. One grouppicture of them in Sevilla, Spain earlier this year. And yeah in that picture WA doesn't has a beard.

Past Christmas we saw the repeat of WA's Christmas message and his beard was still present Wink

King has his tie cut off when he visits the homeless shelter

A visit to the homeless shelter in Weert cost King Willem-Alexander his tie this afternoon. Project leader Jozé Moonen cut the tie off.

Moonen opened the center herself years ago by cutting a tie and so today asked on her last workday if she could cut the king's tie. "The king doubted for a moment when I asked him," she says to 1 Limburg. "But of course I gave him a new tie."

She said she cut off the tie instead of letting the king cut a ribbon, "because in the self-management center we do everything ourselves".

According to alderman Paul Sterk van Weert, also present at the king's visit, it was a spontaneous action. "We saw the king look very doubtful, because it was a very nice designer tie, matching his suit. I wondered what he would do, but then he said" I will do that for you ".

After his tie was cut off, the king received a new one from project manager Moonen. At the end of the visit, the king looked briefly at his new tie. Not quite his taste, he admitted.

Together with State Secretary Paul Blokhuis (Health, Welfare and Sport), the king paid an unannounced working visit to the homeless shelter. At the center they spoke with local stakeholders about the reception.

A fun tradition in Germany allows women to cut a man's tie on the thursday ahead of shrove (or rose) monday:
And women do it everywhere!!! I have seen countless men with cut offs (some try to be clever and re-wear last years ruined tie - pretending some other women had already cut it that morning): most know it and take it with a bit of humour, some however can get really angry. Halo To my knowledge however, legal claims have never been admitted…
BTW this year it will be 02/20/2020....
Yet it is a bit of a bummer for the nice and expensive Hermes, but I presume, he has countless more and won't even notice the loss of that one...

Nice tradition! Do you know what the origin is? What the first cause was for it?

Just spotted an older online (non RD) item about WA entitled "Spotted Willy in the Wild" ("Gespot: Willy in het wild")

Such a hilarious title  Laughing
