Well a Dutch Royal did.
I mean I know you were thinking I was about to start talking about a member of the Royal Family from England, but my fascination with them has had me learning more about the different royal’s around the world.
Princess Catharina-Amalia of the Netherlands has now made history by waiving her income that would come to her on her 18th birthday.
The future Queen, eldest daughter of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima, wrote the Prime Minister of the Netherlands and told him that she would feel uncomfortable getting the money as she hasn’t done anything for it.
111,000 euros (the equivalent of about $130,000) was what she was set to receive to pay for her income, operations and personnel expenses this year.
“On 7 December 2021, I will be 18 and, according to the law, receive an allowance,” Amalia wrote in the letter.
“I find that uncomfortable as long as I do not do anything for it in return, and while other students have a much tougher time of it, particularly in this period of coronavirus.”
It’s the first time a member of the Dutch royal family has waived their rights to the tax free salary.
Don’t know you Princess Catharina-Amalia, but we stan you. You’re gonna make an awesome Queen.
