Wow, that's definately not easy to accomplish, but she did it over not a very long period! Strong woman!

Maxima is being studying Dutch since 1999. First with a private tutor when she used to live in New York and she continued studying when she moved to Europe. She is very smart.

I've honestly never heard W-A talking and his voice is deep, kind of sexy; you would never imagine that's his true voice

Thank you for all the photos, Catherina-Amalia and Alexia are both gorgeous little girls and I sense that Catherine-Amalia at least has developed her mother's bubbly and outgoing personality.

I believe she said 'lach een beetje' or 'laugh a little.' I believe this was directed towards her parents. But in other words, i think Amalia was telling her parents to smile.

Yes, she said 'Een beetje lachen!' (smile a little) and it sounded as it was directed to her parents indeed, because Maxima repeated it. She is so great, the little one. I hope she'll stay as spontaneous as she is now!

that's so nice of amalia! i'm so happy that her personality seemed to have evolved so much in the past year and she seems to be a lot more extrovertive, meanwhile at first she seemed quite shy. in her last appearences (alexia's christening, buenos aires walk in puerto madero, torino's olympics and this lech photosession) her personality definetely changed from before, which is great, since babies tend to start changing much later. she will be just as outgoing as her parents and the queen herself.

thanks for those lovely videos! it was great hearing willem talking in such a good german and it was the first time i hear maxima talking in english with her beautiful english accent! they both surprised me greatly. loved the las part of them saying "gruss gott in vorarlberg" at the same time and laughing! does anyone know what willem tells maxima that she blushes and puts her hand on her face? :)

this family is trully lovely...

The video is great. One journalist called: "Amalia!". And then she shouted "Ja!" So cute. And W-A does speak perfect German, but no wonder, Dutch seems to be quite similar.

In the grammar Dutch differs quite a lot from German. I'm Dutch myself, but I had quite a hard time learning German, I speak English way better. Therefore I think that W-A speaks German so well is due to the fact that his father, Prince Claus, was German.

Amalia is just such a cutie, imo she's the cutest little princess around. I love her spontaneous, lively personality. Her character seems to be just like her mothers. In looks, she has Alexanders nose and mouth, but Maxima's eyes and smile.
Alexia is a very beautiful baby, I love her big brown eyes. She is just like Amalia when Amalia was her age; quiet, a bit scared of the press, no smile.
Someone said that she didn't like the way Amalia and her mother act; well, I think that a two-year old should act like a two year old and have the space to play around. There will be many times when she cannot be herself fully, because all the camera's are pointed on her. Now that she is still a child, let her enjoy her freedom and space to be her spontaneous self.

Every time I see these pictures, I feel like that W-A's and Maxima's family is complete and Maxima will not have a third child.

I loved hearing Maxima speak English....such a treat and she has a great voice. It was nice to put voices with both of their faces. This family is adorable and I think Amalia has a wonderful personality. So full of life. I can see why W-A fell for Maxima and vice versa.
