Those really are gorgeous pictures and for once I really like what Mabel's wearing. The girls have indeed grown and are very cute (we last saw them during Ariane's baptism, isn't it?).

Thanks for sharing, Stefan!

Thanks for posting those Stefan. Nice that the RF released some pictures fto mark this occassion, since tprince Friso and his family are not members of the royal house. I wonder where the pictures were taken, Kinderdijk or Zaanse Schans I suppose... Didn't prince Friso succeed his father as patron of the foundation of windmills? So a fitting background, and a nice gesture of HRH. Princess Mabel looks good, the hair and make up this way make her look softer.

They released more pictures to the press than the 3 above btw, look here.

The pictures were taken in Leidschendam (suburb of The Hague) where they apparently have 3 windmills next to each other:

Odette there are no silly questions as my dad say.
Friso was born 21.09.1968 and Mabel 11.08.1968

I think that Luana looks a lot like Johan Friso! They have the same smile! You can see it in the picture with her mother from belga! But I have to agree that she indeed is quite alike with her cousin Catharina Amalia!

No, Prince Friso was not born 21.09.1968! According to Wikipedia he was born 25.09.1968! And I think that this is the right date!
