Willem-Alexander to take Dutch throne

At 46, Prince Willem-Alexander is set to become the next King of the Netherlands when his mother Beatrix abdicates the throne. Though known in his youth as something of a playboy, the Prince now enjoys a hard-won legitimacy. In 2002 he married the Argentine Maxima Zorreguieta, the future queen who has won the hearts of the Dutch despite her father's checkered past.
