Ariane was carried by Ines Zorreguieta, Maxima's sister.

I believe in the old days the infant was carried into the church by the highest ranking lady of the court, which would be the grand mistress. I believe that Princess Juliana even arrived in a seperate carriage from her parents, with the grand mistress. The king and his borthers were carried by a nanny, while in this generation they seemed to have changed this again.

I have no idea who carried Alexia into the church in 2005. I did not see the broadcast at the time and for some reason there are no photos available of the moment, neither is it mentioned in articles. This probably means that she was not carried by a family member but perhaps by a friend - which would be less noteworthy for the press and readers.

In the book Willem-Alexander, van prins tot koning by Jan Hoedeman and Remco Meijer is written that the three sons of Princess Beatrix and Prince Claus were carried into the church by their nanny, nurse Elisabeth Jacoba Swellengrebel.

Picture

Back in those days, only in 1967, a careful selection was made. Nurse Swellengrebel had good relations in the "better circles". The nurse was known via her mother Christine Catherine Swellengrebel née Royaards, daughter of Johan Sebastiaan Royaards, Mayor of Scherpenzeel and owner of Scherpenzeel House (picture) and of Louise Christine Egbertine Francesca Baroness van Haersolte van den Doorn, Dame du Palais.
