Dutch royals can marry person of same gender without giving up throne, says PM

The Guardian says a Dutch monarch can marry a person of whatever gender they choose without forfeiting their right to the throne, prime minister Mark Rutte has said.

Rutte was responding to questions from parliament that arose from a recent book, Amalia, Duty Calls, which argued that old laws would appear to exclude the possibility of a same-sex couple on the throne, despite same-sex marriage being legal in the Netherlands since 2001.

The book is about Princess Amalia, the 17-year-old heir to King Willem-Alexander.
