Dutch King Willem-Alexander and his queen Maxima have attended a remembrance ceremony in Amsterdam honouring those who fought and died in World War II.

Throughout the county, two minutes of silence were observed at 8pm on May 4 as it the tradition every year.

The royal couple and government laid flowers at the National monument on Dam square in the capital.

Nazi Germany occupied the Netherlands in 1940. The government and the royal family escaped the invasion and went into exile in Britain.
