Benjamin is such a cute baby! He has the largest blue eyes! His siblings, cousins, and the rest of the Dutch Royal Kids are very cute/handsome as well.

Is it known who little Benjamin's godparents are?

They seem like such a close-knit family. The pictures are wonderful.

Awesome pictures indeed! It's great to see nearly all Dutch kiddies!
(I guess Anita didn't attend because of her pregnancy).

Is it know why Friso & Family didn't attend?
And: Where Margriet&Pieter always attending? I didn't see any pictures of them.

It's great to see Magali again. She's just too adorable... like all of the other dutch kids as well.

Margriet arrived with Aimee and Magali.

PPE updated their pics and now shows the royals while leaving Het Loo. Great pics: Beatrix with glasses is holding her youngest grandchildren :8)

The only absents were Princess Anita van Oranje-Nassau van Vollenhoven due to her state of pregnancy and her daughter Emma, who stayed with her mother

Wow what a lovely family!

And Princess Amalia...wow...it seems like yesterday she was just being christened. What a lovely lady. Alexia is simply adorable. Hello Ariane! Are we walking :) Laurentien's kids remind me of her...and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Love little Magali.
