- King Willem-Alexander: 949,000 per annum*
- Queen Maxima: 377,000
- Princess Beatrix: 537,000
* These are only their personal allowances. The king also receives money for the upkeep of palaces, staffing, security etc. This is paid for by various state departments and therefore not very transparent, to say the least. The government budget states that the total costs for the royal house will be 44,4 million for 2020.
* Princess Catharina-Amalia (as heir to the throne) is due to receive a yearly allowance of 275,000 from when she turns 18 on 7 December 2021.
I enjoy following royalty as much as anyone, but put in black and white like this, my American side pops up and sees this as an injustice to every citizen not born into the royal family. Just because one wins the lottery on parents, one receives from the citizens of their country a large amount of money upon turning 18. Crazy. Maybe Im less a Royalist than I thought.
