The Dutch King Willem-Alexander will be the guest of honor at the hundredth Dies Natalis of Erasmus University.

Which member of the royal family would be the guest of honor was not known earlier this week. Rector magnificus Henk Schmidt told the University Council on Tuesday that the royal family was invited and that they were deciding on which member they would send. On Thursday the Rijksvoorlichtingsdienst (Government Information Service) announced that the King himself comes to the centennial celebrations in De Doelen on November 8. TF
