Joris was so kind to translate the wishes of the godparents into english on the Benelux Royals MB:

Marc ter Haar, also Prince Willem-Alexander´s wedding witness (in Dutch):
Dear Catharina-Amalia, I wish you optimism, self-confidence and friendship. For friendship doubles your joy and lets your sorrow be shared.

Martín Zorreguieta, Máxima´s brother (in Spanish):
Amalia, I hope you will always be capable to have the modesty to admit your errors and to have the desire to learn from them. Because only thus you can grow as a person.

HRH Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, Queen Beatrix´ goddaughter (in English):
Dearest Amalia, enjoy life and try to see every situation in a favourable light. May you stay close to nature and to laughter. And may you find joy in helping others. I wish you health and happiness.

HRH Prince Constantijn, youngest brother of the Prince of Orange (in Dutch):
Dear Amalia, take the world with you on your journey. Help us to step across borders. Open your eyes to what is different and let yourself be inspired by this.

Herman Tjeenk Willink, Vice President of the State Council of the Netherlands (in Dutch):
Dear Amalia, I wish you the space to be yourself and the strength to remain yourself. May that space be given and granted to you.

Samanta van Welderen Baroness Rengers-Deane, one of Princess Máxima best friends (in Spanish):
I wish you a life full of happiness, health and love and also the strength to endure the difficulties and sadness which Fate might have in store for you.

Getty images has lots of nice photos. Also of Laurentien, Marilene and their families. Great close photos of the guests!

Thanks Lena for posting the godparents wishes. Very nice speeches by all of them, I think. :)

First let me say that I like Maxima a great deal. She's the most natural, vivacious and spontaneous of all the princesses. But that dress with the bows was not what I would call my favorite. Sadly, I wouldn't say they have the cutest of all the babies either. But they all look very very happy.

Hm...IMO, Amalia has all, what a baby needs to be cute...chubby cheeks, a cute little snub nose, a lot of hair...So for me she´s on all accounts cute. But talking about beauty...well one can´t really talk about the beauty of a 7 months old, because then children are more cute than pretty. But if I should judge it, I would say, that the other baby-heir-princesses (Ingrid, Elisabeth) will be more beautiful one day...but maybe the future shows me, that I was wrong...children can change a lot.

How long has Getty been down? Anybody know? I know at least 2 hours or so because that´s was when I checked it last. Anyway, CA is a cute baby. I agree.

I'm sorry, but I really hope that was just a bad day for Princess CA because the whole time I was look'n at the pictures, I was thinking, "Wow...not the cutest little kid is she?!" I know, I'm an awful person! I'm sure she will get prettier with age.

Well, why shouldn´t you say this!? Nobody can force you to think, that she´s cute. And as I´m quite sure, that you don´t get in touch with C-A and/or her parents and say this to them I don´t think, that this is a problem!

Princess CA looks a lot like her cousin Eloise, Countess Eloise? As long as she&#39;s healthy is all that matters at this point in time. My own baby was quite ugly until she was 6 months old, and then she just got prettier and prettier.

The pictures were lovely and I am happy the ceremony went well&#33;

I have to comment on a couple of hats--Maxima&#39;s and Laurentien&#39;s. Maxima is usually quite stylish, but I thought she had a twig bush attached to her head. Laurentien&#39;s hat--there are no words to describe that horror&#33; :o

I have to say that Princess Amalia is quite a handsome baby. She is welllllllllllllllllllllll feed. As far as her looks are concerned she is just like her parental grandmother in that area very unique but regal. Her father is also not a looker himself (meaning not the best in the looks department) and the mother is not a great beauty. Amalia is simply a product of her breeding, and it is not all that fine, but she is a baby nonetheless with parents that appear to love and dote on her. All children could only hope that they are recieved into this world with two lovings parents as Princess Amalia seems to have. May God Bless.

I just have to say that I think CA is a very cute baby. I mean, alla babies are cute but she belongs to the more cute ones.

As for her looks in the future, you really can&#39;t judge that now. She won&#39;t be that chubby all her life. And right now the short hair makes her kinda look like a boy, but when it grows longer, I&#39;m sure she will be a very pretty little girl.

she is a really nice baby... and i&#39;m sure that when she grows will be much more&#33; she has a nice eye colour, and she will be really tall if she continues like that.

by the way, she is really cute now...

I love this picture. She looks like she knows her desiny already. Also she looks cute in this picture. I don't think that C-A is really cute right now, most babies to me at C-A's age just look weird, they're inbetween grow older and having the newborn look. C-A looks different she has pale skin and red-ish blonde hair with nice eyes ( but her eyes will widen, because Maxima had the same eyes as a baby, so C-A has her mother's eyes). When I saw a picture of Nickloi of Denmark around C-A age, I thought he had the biggest head of every seen on a baby,( the same thing for his father, brother and uncle), but now Nickloi and Felix are two of the cutest boys I've every seen. So,what I'm trying to say is C-A will come into her looks soon.
