Amalia just looks a lot like Maxima as a baby. Look at the babyphoto of Maxima and you will see!

Thanks for the link, The Watcher. It worked for me and it was such a treat.

The amount/volume of gifts Amalia got was incredible! Every baby should be so lucky and feel so special and adored!
Prince Willem-Alexander told that it was only a small part of all the presents that they receive. The people gave the little princess more than 300.000 congratulalions, present etc. That is so much...

Btw. here is a other link to the video. Go to 'Voor Amalia', it worked for me :flower:

Article from Expatica:

Proud royal parents thank nation for best wishes

5 February 2004

AMSTERDAM — Crown Prince Willem Alexander and Princess Maxima publicly thanked the nation on Wednesday night for the presents, letters and best wishes following the birth of their daughter Princess Amalia last year.

During a special appearance on public television station Nederland 2, the popular royal couple said the Netherlands' future queen is doing extremely well, reported Dutch public news service NOS.

"She is perfectly healthy. She doesn't cry much, only if she is hungry. If she eats, she eats a lot. She is increasingly alert and looks with huge curious eyes at the world," proud mother Princess Maxima said.

The Argentinean-born Maxima also said the royal couple's carefree times were behind it: "We are now 100 percent responsible for someone's life, but it is a very happy period."

Maxima also admitted that Prince Willem-Alexander is more practical than herself, joking that she is "little bit Latin" in that respect.

The royal couple were filmed in their Wassenaar mansion Villa Eikenhorst and the royal place Paleis Noordeinde, the royal family's working palace, in The Hague. Footage showed Willem, Maxima and Amalia looking at the large number of presents lining her nursery.

They also admitted being incredilby impressed by the amount of presents as Prince Willem-Alexander showed his daughter gum boots, a swiming life jacket and Friesian iceskates. "You must learn to skate in Friesland," he told her. "Just like your father," Maxima added.

During the broadcast, called Voor Amalia (For Amalia), the crown prince's words also conveyed the feeling that both he and his wife regretted the fact that Prince Claus — the father of Prince Willem-Alexander — did not live long enough to have experienced the birth of his granddaughter.

Prince Claus died in October 2002 after a long battle with illness, but was still alive when his first grandchild Eloise was born. Princess Laurentien, the wife of Claus' youngest son Prince Constantijn, gave birth to Eloise in June 2002.

The broadcast also revealed that Princess Amalia sleeps in a cradle that Queen Wilhelmina received in 1909 for the birth of Princess Juliana, the mother of the present Dutch monarch, Queen Beatrix. Both Prince Willem-Alexander and Queen Beatrix slept in the same cradle.

Meanwhile, the official website of the royal family (www.koninklijkhuis.nl) has also published a letter thanking the Dutch nation.

Much of the letter is written as though Amalia herself is speaking, describing her appearance in the arms of her father in front of the nation's media just four hours after her birth. Then press conference was held in the Bronovo Hospital in The Hague, were Amalia was born on 7 December.

It has also been announced that all Dutch municipal authorities will be able to plant an "Amalia tree" in the Spring. The national forestry service, Staatsbosbeheer, and the national tree holiday foundation, Stichting Nationale Boomfeestdag, will make 5m trees available to the nation's municipal councils.

The only conditon is that the trees must be planted by children on national tree day on 24 March.

Thanks for this article xxLindaxx. The Amalia tree idea sounds very sweet -- and so environmentally conscious!

Hello!

Willem-Alexander Shows He's a Modern Dad

5 FEBRUARY 2004
Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander has obviously taken to fatherhood with aplomb. Stepping out with wife Maxima and their new daughter Catharina-Amalia, the future king looked relaxed and comfortable with a baby harness slung around his neck, as he and his family took a stroll around their country residence.

The happy couple also made a televised address to the people of the Netherlands, thanking them for the many gifts and messages of congratulations they have received since Catharina-Amalia was born. To show their gratitude for all the support, the royals have released a series of photographs showing them enjoying some quality time with their new arrival.

It is the first time little Catharina has been photographed since her birth on December 7. Her arrival was marked by lavish celebrations all over the country and a 101 canon salute in The Hague.

The infant will one day become Queen of the Netherlands, because boys and girls have equal rights to accession under the country's constitution. And fittingly she already has her own coat of arms, featuring a shield divided into four blue and beige panels.

I suspect it's a 'day cradle' and not the main bed for her. Cradles, while pretty and cute, don't really get much use. I think maybe 3 or 4 months before they really become unsafe for a child who's getting active.

It's a gorgeous cradle but I can't help but think of all the 'accidents' little babies have on their bedding....lol

It does seem a bit unpractical for day to day (or night to night&#33 use, doesn't it. It is very beautiful and the bedding looks very expensive, but you're right justine -- all those normal baby things would be killer on the sheets. Just even a normal amount of baby drool could ruin those sheets.

I'm not sure but I think the crib is only used for the pictures. But is it a beautiful crib and very very old. Princess Juliana also slept in this crib and Beatrix, Irene, Willem-Alexander, Johan-Friso and Constantijn (for the picture?) etc. So the first time it is used in 1909, a long time ago.

still cant believe the child is not wearing anything on her head. dont they know that the head is where most of the body's warmth leaves the body in a childs case? sorry, i loved the photos myself, but i think this is irresponsible. it doesnt matter how warm it was.
