Dutch Royal Family Christmas

Christmas this year will probably be a difficult one for the Dutch Royal Family, so soon after the death of Friso. I wonder where they might spend it, and if Mabel and her daughters will join them?

The Dutch Royal Family never reveal their private plans for holidays, so this is just guessing on my part:
It could well be that Princess Beatrix will spend Christmas and New Years at castle Het Oude Loo in the woods near Paleis Het Loo in Apeldoorn.
She uses that castle often as a weekend retreat and is one of her most favorite places.
It is also near the house of her sister Margriet, who is also going through a difficult Christmas because of the serious illness of her son Bernhard.
I think it is most likely that Princess Mabel and her daughters will spend Christmas with Beatrix, just as Prince Constantijn and his family.
I am not sure about the King and Queen and their daughters. It could be that they are spending the holidays with Princess Beatrix or with the Queens' parents in Argentinia, which they usually do.

Do we know if the King and Queen & family went to Argentina this year or was Christmas spent in the Netherlands?

I would have thought that his 1st Christmas as King would be spent at home.

King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima, Princess Beatrix, Princess Mabel and their five girls have spent some Easter holidays at the Villa in Tavarnelle, Italy, this month. On April 18 they were pictured in a café in Florence.

This is a breach of privacy and good chance for a succesful lawsuit, especially because minors (the three princesses and the two countesses) and non-members of the Royal House (Mabel) were pictured during perfectly private pastime outside any official framework.
