Dutch King Indicted for Lèse-majesté by Prosecutors in The Hague

The King of the Netherlands, Willem-Alexander, is in hot water with Dutch prosecutors. His Majesty has been indicted for an insult he hurled at Queen Máxima after a night of hookah and drinks with some of his Dukes.

The incident took place in a popular pub in the center of Amsterdam, where His Majesty the King had been imbibing for a few hours. The typically jovial King got a bit tipsy and started dancing on top of a table; an act which, unbeknownst to His Majesty, was being recorded and would be subsequently posted to Youtube.

Also posted on Youtube was a video of His Majesty hugging a voluptuous, 190cm blonde. Her Majesty Queen Máxima, who was in a nearby coffeeshop huffing down some reefer with her Argentinean generals -- many of them in power since the dictatorship -- got wind of His Majesty's drunken antics and, like a typical Latina, grew furious and decided to storm the pub.

Her Majesty marched over to the pub and grabbed the King by the hand, told him he was gonna hear it when they got to the palace. His Majesty was having none of it, and in a heated, drunken moment, shouted: "I'm kicking some pints with my Dukes, take your hands off me, you fucking cunt!"

At that point, security surrounded the place and made everyone turn off their phones, so it's hard to determine just how loudly Her Majesty shouted, "just wait 'til you get back to the palace, coño!"

After receiving over 6,000 complaints, prosecutors in The Hague decided to indict His Majesty the King under a centuries-old law which criminalizes insults to members of the royal family. The 1886 law, which is used seldomly, could see His Majesty fined up to 40,000 guilders, or incarcerated up to 5 years.

His Majesty the King has acquired the legal services of barrister Willem Jebbinks, who told Abreu Report: "The Netherlands likes to say it upholds human rights to the highest standards, but The King's indictment is a shame and disgrace."

Pete Bouckaert, a director at Human Rights Watch, said he was concerned about the indictment of the King. "This case represents a clash between the liberal outlook of Dutch society and an antiquated law that I am sure the queen doesn’t think is necessary to protect her stature in Dutch society,” he said.
