You just go to the website, you choose your country and language, and you can type what you want to find at quick search. It's pretty much the same way it was. Good luck

Simple Catholic things like the use of an Advent Calendar and Advent Candles. This is not the custom with protestants.

Simple Catholic things like having a little cross above the beds of the Princesses or have a statue or an icon of Our Lady in the princely villa, to burn a little candle in front.

Yes, the Prince has stated that his daughters 'will be raised into the Protestant tradition' and the Princess stated that she was studying Protestantism.
But finally she never converted to Protestantism and remained true and loyal to the Church of Rome. Like every other parent, she will also have her own influence on her children. Keep also in mind that half of the royal family and the whole Zorreguieta family is Catholic. The Zorreguietas are also their grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins and nieces.

Yes, that makes sense. I was growing up like this, protestant, but with angels above my bed, cribs, advent calenders and advent candles etc because I lived in a catholic area and with a mixed family. I guess it will be similar to Amalia and Alexia. I think it is a good thing.
Concerning the pictures, didn't they release just one after Luana's christening? I might be wrong though, I am not sure.

I'm agree, but I also think that as a future queen, princess Máxima should respect the "oficial" faith in Netherlands, and also, because some day princess Amalia is gonna be the queen.

This is a thread regarding the baptism/christening of Countess Zaria. Let's not turn this into a discussion of Protestantism vs. Catholicism. Nor should we turn this into a thread regarding the choices of Maxima regarding her faith, or what influence that might have on her children. There are other forums and threads for that. Let's stay on topic please.

What a cute family. Both girls are precious. Am I the only one who thinks Zaria looks a lot like her father?
And oh well, I think it's cute that there are bows on Zaria's christening dress.
