I feel like there's some confusion going on, regarding the school system and what grades the girls are in.

In Dutch primary or elementary school, there are 8 years, unlike most other school systems where there are only 6 years.

Basically, the first two years of Dutch primary school, are like Kindergarten. The children only learn to read and write when they're in the 3rd year, which is really 1st grade in other systems!

so, Amalia is in year 4, but that means 2nd grade. Alexia is in year 2, which is still Kindergarten. Ariane will start her first year of Kindergarten next school year again, because obviously the short time she'll go to school the rest of this school year is not a proper full year of school.

Witnessing the growth of these three little beauties is a pleasure indeed.I think Amalia is getting prettier and prettier as she grows up. She seems to have a strong and vibrant personality from very early days! Alexia is a true beauty but also the shiest of the trio. Little Ariane is absolutely precious. God bless them.

The dutch TV RTL has told that princess Ariane has a very serious lung disease. According to RTL, Willem Alexander and Maxima have flewn to Miami with their daughter to get treatment at a specialist clinic.
When Ariane was admitted to hospital in May 2007, shortly after her birth, the first time with severe breathing problems, the court told that it was a "lung infection".
RTL is now reporting, however, that it is an incurable lung disease. The life expectancy is about 36 years. In America there are experiments with new methods of treatment.
The court has not confirmed the news.

I pray for that this is not true...

Court expert Marc van der Linden has denied this, says that it is nonsense.

It's not true. The spokesman of the Royal Family says the news is 'nonsense'. Princess Ariane is with her parents and her sisters on holiday and she is not sick:

I love Amalia's hair-do and dress. She's looking more and more like a young lady .
