- I’m not a protocol fetishist. People can address me however they want. For me, it is about people feeling at ease when I’m with them.
- [I want to be] a king who in the 21st century can unite, represent and encourage society.
- People make mistakes. I will make mistakes in the future, too... I think we have learnt a lot from this and that it has also been part of the training in our preparation for kinghood.
