Thanks for the beautiful pictures everybody! Aiko, Amalia, and Alexia were all adorable. I think Aiko is so precious (and kind of looks confused, understandable since she's in a foreign country) at all the fuss of the photographers and such. Amalia was her exuberant self and the adults seemed very content. The picture of the two princesses holding hands is precious beyond words.

It seems the perfect time to do it since Masako has come such a long way. Many of the CP couples have visited her at her palace (especially during the World Expo last year) and so would have some, however minimal, relationship with her. At the very least, I have wondered about Mathilde and Elisabeth popping up from Belgium. Elisabeth and Aiko are only three months apart and I know Philippe and Mathilde have met the Japanese Royals on at least a couple of occasions. I am going to have my antennae up for the whereabouts of the other CP's during the next couple of weeks. If any of you catch wind of something -- please post it!!
I was thinking the same thing Emily...I'm quite sure Mathilde, Philippe & Elisabeth will meet up with the Japanese family since the ties between them have always been quite close and Elisabeth and Aiko are so close in age.

She certainly did. When some photographers asked her to wave again she said ´no´, with a naughty look on her face (but after a few seconds she was waving again of course).

The video images of a giggling Aiko are just priceless, thanks for posting them & I wish there was a way to save them to my computer, but helas...

Good for her! It's nice to see little Amalia's got so much spirit. Throughout her life, she will be having people tell her what she should & should not be doing. Nice to see she has a mind of her own!

I love all of these pictures! Thanks everyone for posting them!

Did you notice that both girls who are heirs to the throne (I know in Aiko's case it is debatable!) wore blue. In fact the men wore blue too. Do you think that they arranged it this way? It seems like too much of a coincidence that the eldest child to both the Dutch and Japanese crown princes is a girl and they both wore a colour more associated with a boy? Is that because traditionally only men became rulers?

I personally think the colour choice is a coincidence, but if Maxima and Masako did discuss the colour choice of their daughters, I don't think the colour discussion went as deep to say that it was because it's a colour associated with a boy and with the debate in Japan about only boys ascending to the throne.

Both Amalia and Aiko have worn blue in the past for photo ops (Amalia while in Argentina with her mom as well as a blue snow suit during one winter holiday) and Aiko has worn blue dresses on previous occasions when leaving for the airport or to wave her father off on a trip.

Alexia, who isn't the next heir, although follows her sister in succession, was also dressed in blue.

Thanks mandyy and everyone for the pictures! They are absolutely adorable!
Both Aiko and Amalia are so cute I especially loved the pictures of them holding hands and Masako smiling. It is good to see that she is having a fun, relaxed holiday in the Netherlands.

I've seen enough pictures and videos of her from birth until this day to see for myself that she is a happy girl, just not one that always knows what to make of all the cameras. Her parents seem to dote on her and I think she exercises restraint to the best of her ability while in public because that is what is expected of her. And for a four year old, I think she follows her mother's instructions admirably well. It's most likely a mixture of comfort level, culture, personality and age.

I don't think Aiko is an unhappy child. If you watch the videos posted in this thread, there is a point when Aiko laughs and giggles like a little girl. She does it in the cutest way too, covering up her mouth but still audibly laughing.

I think she is just more somber than Amalia. Who wouldn't be next to Amalia anyways, who is so outgoing and has some very over the top movements like throwing her arms up in the air and smiling broadly at the cameras. She's very outgoing and doesn't seem shy or intimidated at all by the presence of all those Dutch and Japanese media.
