Anton Corbijn has taken new state photos to mark the tenth anniversary of King Willem-Alexander. The rock photographer shot the portraits of Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima in early September in the Gallery Hall of Noordeinde Palace, the Government Information Service (RVD) announced on Friday.
Corbijn, a rock photographer of world fame, photographed the king and queen separately and together. Willem-Alexander wears a suit and the Knight Grand Cross in the Military Order of William and the star of the Grand Cross in the Order of the Netherlands Lion. Máxima is dressed in a powder pink gown and wears the Grand Cross of the Order of the Netherlands Lion and the star of the Grand Cross of the House Order of Orange.
In 2018, Erwin Olaf made the state portraits of the royal couple. The photographer had a special bond with the Dutch royal family. Olaf also designed the new Dutch euro coins in 2013 with King Willem-Alexander, who was inaugurated that year. Four years later he also made the official portraits of the royal family. In 2019 he was appointed Knight in the Order of the Netherlands Lion.
