(CS) The Dutch royal family this week enjoyed some fun in the sun on a beach near The Hague with the press invited to the annual photo call.

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima posed for the pictures with their daughters Amalia (11), Alexia (10) and Ariane (8). Also pictured are the family's two dogs.

Around 100 journalists attended the occasion, with the Dutch royal family hosting photo calls twice a year, in the summer holidays and before Christmas. In return, the press are asked not to publish private photos the rest of the year.

A tweet sent by the Dutch royal household signed WA (for Willem-Alexander) read: “Quiet day at the beach with family”
