Maybe it was with this upbringing and home environment that set King Willem-Alexander onto a path as a commercial pilot with Dutch national carrier KLM and for 21 years he has taken to the skies twice a month to ferry passengers around on short-haul services.

Willem-Alexander said that he plans to retrain to fly KLM's Boeing 737s so passengers will have many more opportunities to be flown by royalty. "But yes, some people recognize my voice during the flight".

"The advantage is that I can always say that I wish everyone a heartfelt welcome in the name of the captain and the crew", he continued. He flew as a volunteer in Kenya, first for the medical aid organization African Medical Research & Education Foundation (AMREF) and then for the Kenya Wildlife Service.

Now Duke Energy Corporation's current price is $8.75 shy of the official highest sell-side analyst price target on Wall Street. The business had revenue of $5.73 billion during the quarter, compared to analysts' expectations of $5.76 billion.

"So I don't have to say my name".

He admits, however, that when he does make announcements, "most people don't listen anyway". You have responsibility for them.

While Willem-Alexanders love of flying was not secret, his interview revealed far more detail about the extent of his regular piloting for KLM.

And the customs union is a classic example. "Sensible negotiations start by leaving the maximum number of options on the table". And that means that there has to be movement of people to come and work in this country.

"You can't take your problems with you off the ground". He told De Telegraaf it "seemed nice to fly to other destinations one day, with more passengers and bigger distances". Prince Charles and his two sons are qualified pilots, as is Jordan's King Abdullah.

Willem-Alexander acceded to the throne four years ago after his mother, Queen Beatrix, abdicated the throne to him, following a 33 year rule. Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei sometimes pilots his own flights on state visits. You can completely disengage and concentrate on something else.

In Britain, the Duke of Cambridge is just finishing off a stint as an air ambulance helicopter pilot, his brother Prince Harry served in Afghanistan as an Apache helicopter co-pilot and their uncle Prince Andrew was a Royal Navy helicopter pilot during the Falklands War.
