In one year's time the confidence in Willem-Alexander as future King has increased considerably. In 2012, 59 percent of the Dutch trusted him for the job. This is now 69 percent according to the Throne Exchange IPSOS survey research commissioned by the NOS.
The increase is primarily due to the television interview with the future King and Queen, which aired last Wednesday. Almost half of the Dutch (48 percent) think positively about Willem-Alexander.
