School duties are such they can skip classes,Amalia did bright as she is,bright kids get dispensation easily so they could as well
move to Austria already,the schedule is totally empty already.

I recall in Juliana's days the girls kept following lessons even while on holiday,and to not distract them then they had the lessons in the Royal train,not a fancy place I tell you,a bit of an austere sort of transportation,2nd class nowadays is more comfortable then many a Royal train.

Well, most parents would not just go away and leave their two young daughters at home in the care of nannies when they can prevent it, but well... good that they stick to the leerplichtwet this year.

Absolutely terrible, this shooting. It makes you wonder how on earth a person who was known to be mentally unstable is allowed to be a member of a shooting association. Apparently it was his father who was a member first, and who took his son later on.

I am afraid we will see more and more of these kind of things in the future :(.

I hope that this memorial service can help in small way to heal those affected by the tragedy. Sadly it appears that this is becoming an all too common event around the world.

When did she get so big? It feels like her parents married only a few years ago.

I must say, the future of Europe's monarchies are stunning: Amalia, Elisabeth, Leonor, Ingrid Alexandra...
