Bono: Dutch Royalty "very chilled out"

In an interview with 538 DJ Ruud de Wild in Londen, U2 singer Bono described the Dutch Royal family as "very chilled out".

Bono has met King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima a couple of times. "I like them." he said. He finds it strange that they have "no airs and graces", they ride bicycles an drink beer like normal people.

Bono has known Princess Mabel for years and they are good friends. Last November Bono was one of the 900 guests at the private memorial service for Prince Friso in the Oude Kerk in Delft. "I got to know Friso a little bit. He's a beautiful dude."
