On Friday evening, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima continued his 50th birthday celebrations with a special dinner at the Royal Palace in Amsterdam. The couple dined with 150 people that shared the King's birthday and were celebrating a "jubilee" year themselves (every five years: 40, 45, etc.). Cute idea, right?
