I mean, I understand that royals want their privacy (especially for their kids) and organize big photoshoots like these, but it's always the same.

I agree, and Im glad you brought up the dutch photoshoots, I thought the same thing, they pretty much look the same, very posed, and allthough Maxima and Willem Alexander do their best the children looks a little miffed by all the press screaming Amaaaaaliaaaaaa, and I wont be suprised if the papprazzi will try get some more natural this summer. I think you get more natural pictures like Philippe and Mathilde just did, invite one photographer the family is familiar with with them doing some activites. But I also like seeing some private pictures like theese. Someone said they looked to ordinary, I disagree, Christian looks like happy healthy boy, and I much prefer them than some of the official ones released that were taken by Steen Evald, they were IMO, stiff, airbrushed, posed and Christian did not look half as cute as in theese pictures taken by his parents, yes the light and focus is not soooooo professional, but who cares. Theese pics are adorable.
