Titles of Constantijn's Children

According to the Dutch royal website the children of prince Constantijn und princess Laurentien bear the titles: Countess / Count of Orange-Nassau and Jonkvrouwe / Jonkheer van Amsberg. So far, so good.

Now I tried to look Jonkvrouwe / Jonkheer up in a dictionary, but I haven't found a translation so far.
Does anybody know the translation?

I think it is easiest to compare it with a 'von' in Germany: untitled nobility (like Claus von Amsberg Jonkheer van Amsberg).

Fair enough but Constantijn's grandchildren should have no title as they are no longer princes of the blood.

They do not have a Princely title,they are Count or Countesses of Orange Nassau.

Jonkvrouw means Lady, and Jonkheer means esquire.
