There is a princess with that name in the Luxembourgian history: The Princess Hendrik of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau née Princess Amalia da Gloria Augusta von Sachsen-Weimar und Eisenach (1830-1872).

She was married to Prince Hendrik, brother of Willem III, King of the Netherlands, Grand Duke of Luxembourg. The Prince was appointed Stadtholder, to take the honneurs in the Grand Duchy in name of his brother. Princess Amalia became very loved in Luxembourg. Still today there is a monument honouring her in Luxembourg's City Park.

Is Father's Day being celebrated today in Europe? I thought it was an American holiday.

When Claire arrived at Prince Gabriel's First Holy Communion in that lovely pink dress a couple of weeks ago, I knew she was having a girl!

Congratulations to Felix and Claire! I've always loved Amalia, it's a gorgeous name and now we have two Princesses called Amalia in Europe. I wonder if they were inspired by Queen Maxima, although it's more likely that she's named after Princess Amalia of Saxe-Weimar und Eisenach.

I think it's sweet how she was born on Father's Day - what a lovely gift for Felix. I hope we'll get a photo of little Amalia soon.

Yes, since 2011 the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has absolute primogeniture, meaning that the order of birth is decisive and not the gender of the child.

1. le Grand-Duc Héritier Guillaume de Luxembourg, Prince de Nassau
2. le Prince Félix de Luxembourg, Prince de Nassau
3. la Princesse Amalia de Nassau
4. la Princesse Alexandra de Luxembourg, Princesse de Nassau
5. le Prince Sébastien de Luxembourg, Prince de Nassau

The second son of the Grand-Duke, Prince Louis, and his descendants are not in line of succession.
