They skipped the traditional talk to the press at the end of the photo shoot.

There was a premiere too though, their dog skipper joined in for the first time. He doesn't seem too impressed by it all.

A clip from the NOS:

Nice that the girls are not dressed the same. I wish the king did something about his hair and clothes (which seem 3 sizes too large); most 70 y/o's look more modern than this.

Royalty reporter Marc van der Linden says that they will go to Greece for a 5-week holiday. Apparently the builders needed to rush to finish all the details on time.

Lovely photos, the Princesses all look very cute. Ariane's dress is beautiful.

Oh my look at all those freckles! LOVE THEM! Mine were more noticeable when I was their age, they faded over time.

Wassenaar is a municipality in the Dutch province of South Holland, north of The Hague and on the North Sea coast.

What a very beautiful pictures!!! LOVE all the girls but OMG Amalia grew so much from the last time I saw her, she will be definately one of the tallest princesses around. And I also like that they are dressed diferently!

Freckles are cute and it suits Alexia very much, the other princess who has them is Ingrid Alexandra, but I think Alexia has more.

Even though they are 3 girls, they look so diferent from each other, very beautiful girls that makes me wish to have 3 girls as well

I lke everybody how in a way combine the colours of clothing for the photo session! their home is huge! wish we could see inside! one thing I notice is that she does not have in her back patio a typical Argentinean bar-b-q! I am sure she loves it, is a very tradional thing there and in her position it would be easier to built one there! although she gow up in an apartment so may be that's the reason?????

I have always liked the photo shoots that WA, Maxima and the Three Princesses have. I enjoyed looking at the photos, thank you for posting iceflower. The girls are so sweet and like others here, I think Alexia's freckles are cute. Recently I have often noticed that all three princesses look a lot like their father, I'm not sure who resembles Maxima the most.
