The princesses Amalia and Alexia of the Netherlands take violin lessons and Pieter van Vollenhoven plays the piano. He used to sing in a band as well.

I don't know more Dutch royals playing a musical instrument, but I do know Queen Beatrix and her sisters Margriet and Christina enjoy singing. Christina is a classically trained singer and she performed at several royal events. In the 80's, Beatrix and Margriet actually recorded a song together with their husbands.

Princess Martha-Louise of Norway sings. There's at least 1 youtube clip I've seen her singing. Also, didn't the Norwegian crown princely couple sing at CP Victoria's wedding a couple of weeks ago.

Has any royal ever played in an orchestra, a rock band or performed at a charity concert? Or what about making an album. Has any royalty ever won an music award for their performances or music? What about singing their national athem at a sporting event or other event?

Queen Elisabeth of Belgium (the grandmother of the present King Albert II) played the violin; her teachers were the famous Belgian violinist and her friend Eugène Ysaÿe, and Ysaÿe's wife after his death in 1931.

I think Crown Prince Naruhito has played in an orchestra.

Ouch, that must have hurt! The Duchess of Kent used to sing in the Bach Choir, not sure if she still does.

I read several years back that the Duke of Cambridge was taught some piano, but wasn't very good at it.

Also, I remember reading that his wife was taught piano as well (I believe I read it on this board).

Haakon seems like he would be a "guitar kind of guy" to me!

Not sure if this has been shown anywhere, but here's video of Catharina Amalia singing. She sounds very good!
