If I remember high school biology correctly, green eyes are created by a mutated brown eye gene. I don't know why that stayed in my memory, but it did. I don't even remember learning about hazel eyes. Must have been day dreaming that day.

Ok, then thanks for the info all the van Vollenhoven sons have blue eyes as Princess Margriet and Pieter have blue eyes (correct me if wrong). Are Princess Annette (sometimes seem blue/sometimes green to me) and her kids' eyes blue? And what color were Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard's? And I suppose that little Emma's eyes are brown, like her mothers?

I was searching and I found this pics:

Is it me or taking a close look, Aimée's eyes look grey??

I agree.
Her eyes look brown-green here and also in this picture while they look brown in this picture for example.

The pupil of your eye is made of several layers, each layer can contain melanine, which is actually tinting the eye (as well as in a different way the skin). Depending on how much melanine the body produces and how many layers of the pupil are tinted the eye appears blue (colour only in the first layer, the lighter, the lesser melanine) to almost black (a lot of melanine in all layers).
As caucasian babies are born with almost a lack of melanine, their eyes appear "baby blue", the melanine production starts around birth, and reaches its full maturity at around 9 months. That is why caucasian babies can change their eye-colour in their first months.
Approx, how much melanine your body produces and in which layers the melanine settles, is genetically set. However, there are variations. And so blue eyed parents can have a more greyish or even greenish child. A lighter brown parent can have a child with greenish eyes.
Two grey or blue eyed light eyed parents however can not produce a dark brown eyed child (not without a melanine mutation)
Different coloured eyes are not the result of different eyes of the parents or undecided genes, but a mistake in the melanine production: for ex: a light blue eye and a dark brown eye in a family of brown eyes most likely doesn't stem from a recessive gene, but an albino like melanine production in one pupil.

Regardless of the eye color, the most important thing is that people can see!!!! Also, how can Letizia have green eyes, when her parents/grandparents are dark hair and dark eye?

She does have green eyes. You forgot she was a blond baby. Felipe was a blond and blue eyed baby too. Now he's dark-haired but still blue-eyed.

She's defenitely not wearing any, her eyes are green.

you can have brown eyes with other colors flecked in it. Hazel eyes can also often appear a little green and a little brown. Eye color is not limited by race, although some eye colors are more common with certain races.
I also know people who's eyes change colors depending on mood and color- maybe that is Leti's case?

Her maternal grandmother has green eyes, and I knew for a friend who lives in Asturias that her paternal grandgrandmother had blue eyes, so Letizia has family with light color eyes.

Maria Anunciata's Eyes

Princess Margaretha seems to have a pair of green eyes, while Prince Nikolaus has blue ones. Does anyone know about the colour of their children's eyes?

I've read that most times, people could have their Grandparents eyes, rather than their parents ones. If Princess Letizia's Grandparents have green eyes, she culd have green eyes, no matter her parents has dark ones.

For example. My great-autn was furious, for his son was born with black eyes. "How could it be? -she said- I have green eyes, my husband has deep blue eyes...and my son has black eyes!"...The answer was that one of his grandpa's had black eyes...So, people, all it's possible!

Vanesa.

Is it common for people with green eyes to have a brownish ring around the pupil? It looked like Letizia had it in one of the pictures, and her eyes are green. My father is also green-eyed and has the brown ring as well.
