King Willem Alexander and Queen Maxima

King Willem Alexander and Queen Maxima

 

Koningin-Maxima-Studio-Jean2 Koning-Willem-Alexander-Studio-Jean2My husband and I recently visited Restaurant Gember in The Hague. To our surprise, the Royal family just walked past our table. The chance that you bump into these people is normally very small.

Nice to see that the Royal family can sit in a public place without being disturbed and without any visible security measures. My compliments!

Last year I painted the two portraits of the King and Queen on panel. The paintings hung in the window in my studio at the Thomsonlaan in The Hague in the Coronation Year.

When the King and Queen and their families left, the Queen smiled at us fleetingly, not knowing that she was looking at the person who studied her face in great detail. For us this meeting was a double surprise.
