All babies born in the Dutch Royal Family in the last century worn this brooch the day of their baptism

Allthough many baptismal traditions of Dutch Royal Family have been changed through the years, others, as the christening gown and the historical brooch that wears the new born during the religious ceremony, have remained unalterable in the successive generations of the Orange Family.

In a spontenous ceremony, like her older sister, princess Catherine-Amalia, the small Alexia was baptized with water of the Jordán river and the familiar gown. A precious christening gown, that was made specially for the baptism of Queen Guillermina, in 1880, with embroidery of Brussels. The dress has been used in the last years for the baptisms of Queen Juliana and Queen Beatrix - respectively great-grandmother and grandmother of the neophyte -; her father, prince Guillermo; her uncle Friso and Constantino and, for the last time, as we said by her sister and future Heiress to the throne of Holland, princess Catherine-Amalia. And, showing the historical brooch- a dove of white gold and brilliants taken before by all their predecessors.

Traditions apart, everyone can see how intimate and sponteaneous these cerimonies are at the kingdom of Holland. Thus, the baptism of princess Alexia could be said that was touching, very pleasant and, also, moved enough: the protagonist of the day was smiling during all the celebration, as well as playing with her mother's brooch; princess Catherine-Amalia, older sister of the litle one, was hardly quiet and, even, in a pair of occasions, rose of her seat and began to cross the central corridor of the temple, without paying attention to princess Maxima who indicated with gestures to return to her place; her greater cousin, Eloísa, who looked a young lady, was very proud of the small purse with which she attended the celebration; the Choir of Children dedicated a charming song to litle Alexia and offered her and her sister with two bibles; without forgetting, personal desires of the godparents. Specially, the sweet words of princess Mathilde to Alexia and, also, Amalia.

Very interresting. Sorry to do this but the queens grandmother was named Wilhelmina and not Guillermina. The same goes to the crownprince Willem-Alexander and not Guillermo.
Hope you forgive me, I hate to correct people.

Guillerma and Guillermo are just the Spanish (or Protuguese? I don't know) translations of the names Wilhelmina and Willem. It's possible that Spanish (or Portuguese) speaking people know Queen Wilhelmina and CP Willem-Alexander as Guillerma and Guillermo. It is as in Dutch. When we speak of 'Louis XIV' we also say 'Lodewijk XIV' for instance. That doesn't mean that 'Lodewijk' has to be wrong, but that we just have a Dutch variant of the French name.

Interesting article by the way. :)

That dark lipstick is scary! I think that Mabel is making some serious fashion errors. I like the top half but the skirt should be longer. The lipstick has got to go!

I know I am going to be in the minority..but I actually like Mabel's outfit (lipstick and all). Perhaps it might not have appropriate for a baptism (IMO) but it was a nice outfit. A dark outfit for a bright occassion is not my thing. But hey..I also don't believe in wearing light bottoms with dark tops :) Not sure what Laurentien was thinking.

i'm with you, Zonk1189!
i think she has unique taste in fashion, but the good thing is she can pull it off. so, we can definetely expect something not ordinary from her but not neccesary a bad choice.

Thanks to Carlota and I don't think that it's been posted before, but this is Maxima's half-sister Delores.
