Future King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands will have new military status
In view of his forthcoming assumption of the position of head of state, HRH the Prince of Orange is to relinquish his active military status. Before his investiture as King of the Netherlands, he will at his request be granted an honorable discharge.
Currently the Prince of Orange holds the rank of commodore (commandeur) in the Royal Netherlands Navy and corresponding general officer ranks in the other armed services. However, as head of state and a member of the government, HM the King can no longer hold an active military position within the armed forces. The Prince explained the situation to Ministry of Defence staff in its weekly publication Defensiekrant.
