And the reporters asked some stupid questions like, and I quote,"when are you going to tell her that she will be the queen of the Netherlands some day". and the prince answered pretty funny, "not tonight". :P
Dumb but funny. And I think Willem handled himself very nicely with that reply!

Yahoo News! Willem's sort of got a perplexed look on his face, like he isn't exactly sure which end is up!

Why I can't see the video clip? It says always something about time cut, or something like that...

And it is over midnight, I soon have to go to bed.

Dutch Princess Maxima Gives Birth to Daughter
By Marcel Michelson

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander's wife Princess Maxima gave birth to a baby girl on Sunday, sparking royal celebrations.

The girl will be second-in-line to the Dutch throne.

A proud Willem-Alexander, the Prince of Orange, presented his daughter to the media at a brief news conference in the evening, broadcast live on television.

"Although many babies are born each day, we believe this is the most beautiful baby in the world," he said, holding his daughter wrapped in white blankets.

The couple have not yet decided on a name for the girl who is likely one day to be queen.

She was born late afternoon weighing 7.3 pounds.

Queen Beatrix arrived for an hour at the Bronovo hospital in The Hague in the early evening to loud applause from scores of royal fans waiting outside. She was accompanied by her son Prince Johan Friso and his fiancee Mabel Wisse Smit.

CANNON SALUTE
A regiment of mounted artillery troops, in black and yellow livery, fired 101 cannon shots to announce the birth.

Television programs were interrupted for the news of the birth. On one show the audience sang the national anthem.

Willem-Alexander, Beatrix's eldest son and heir-to-the-throne, married Argentinian-born Maxima Zorreguieta in Amsterdam in February 2002.

The marriage attracted controversy because Maxima's father was agriculture minister during Argentina's 1976-83 military dictatorship when up to 30,000 people vanished or were killed. He was barred from the wedding.

The royal couple's easy-going manner has made them a big hit with fans of the royal family. Tens of thousands thronged the center of Amsterdam for the wedding.

News they were expecting their first child dominated Dutch media when it was announced earlier this year.

The royal family has been dubbed "The Bicycling Monarchy" because of its laid-back style.

In the Netherlands, boys and girls have the same rights to the throne. The current and past two monarchs have been queens -- Wilhelmina, Juliana and Beatrix.

Willem-Alexander's younger brother Prince Johan Friso gave up his lineage to the throne this year after parliament appeared unwilling to approve his marriage to Mabel because of her past contacts with a criminal.

The House of Orange-Nassau became a symbol of resistance in World War II by going into exile during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands.
