They really are growing up so fast. I also know exactly how Maxima feels about her Dad. When you have a Parent who is seriously ill and/or has a serious chronic condition, just having them w/you for one more Christmas is a better gift than anything wrapped in a pretty package under the tree. :). I'm glad he's doing better.

The first part of your post made me smile . I started picturing His Majesty meeting any potential young gentlemen with his sword in tow, offering to show the said gentlemen how to keep the said sword in the best of shapes . The girls are quite lovely, and it's nice to see them looking so relaxed and happy with their parents.

Have they been introduced yet? One never knows what could happen in the future, but it's always fun to play a wistful matchmaker .

I'm not obsessed with royalty...I just think intensely about it.

Their is going to be plenty of young eligible princesses flitting around Europe in the next several years and , well, not so many princes but here's to hoping for a royal love match at least once.

Where did the time go? Ariane was born about a month after I joined TRF, Alexia was a toddler, and Amalia was only three or four years old. Now, they are quickly growing into beautiful young women! Only two years and Amalia will be a teenager- wow. It's been fun seeing the "Three A's" grow over the years!

An old picture of the 10-years old Queen Wilhelmina, in 1890, the year in which she became Queen.

An old picture of Princess Juliana, a few years older than Princess Amalia now.

Wonderful photos Duc et Pair! I'd never seen Queen Wihelmina as a child nor Juliana with long hair.

I'm always thinking of future love matches!! However, I think Elisabeth will go better with Marius than Amalia, but it's just my opinion.
It's true that are more young princesses than princes, but there are some "princes" (from royal family but not royal themselfs), like the Urdangarin boys, Infanta Elena's son Felipe Froilan and Marius. Don't forget about Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix, all the boys from Hereditary Prince Alois of Liechnstein, young but Prince Laurent twin boys, Prince Gabriel and Prince Emmanuel, Princess Beatrix only grandson, Luxembourg boys Gabriel and Noah, Richard from Denmark (I think he is called Richard, the grandson of Princess Benedikte), and of course, the Greek boys.

From the last generation of dutch royals, noone married a royal (not even nobility), so i'd be very surprised if the younger ones will do so...

A clip by the Argentine television:

The king jokes that he uses his holiday in Argentina mainly to practice his Spanish and hopes it will be better in two weeks time.
