On October 31, 2011, H.M. Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, H.R.H. Prince Willem-Alexander of Oranje and H.R.H. Princess Maxima of the Netherlands visited the island of Bonaire.
During their visit the royal trio were met by a small group of protesters who claimed that life on the island has become too expensive and the facilities on the island are deteriorating. When asked by reporters what she, Queen Beatrix, thought of these demonstrations she noted that she was sympathetic to their situation, but there is little she could do.
