The "griffier" is Godefridus Jan "Fred" de Graaf who has been President of the Joint Sessions since June 28, 2011. Here are his remarks to which Amalia nodded:

"Your [W-A] role is hereby strengthened by the support of your wife, who stands at your side, and your three daughters, who as they get older undoubtedly will express their own insights to you. That your eldest daughter, Princess Catharina-Amalia, is the first Princess of Orange and is in our midst this morning, should not go unmentioned on this festive day."

The impression I've got of Amalia at the abdication, from what I read and heard is that she is a bright, self-confident little lady.

However, what is actually known about her and her younger sister's characters and personalities?
What are your impressions of the girls now?

Who is the talkative and outgoing of them, who is quiet and shy, who is full of fun and mischief? Who are they?

Judging by their outfits during the coronation ceremonies, Maxima still likes to dress them identically, or at least matching.

I feel Amalia might be getting a bit too old for it, is she 10 yet?

To be honest, I think they are pretty much kept out of the media except for official photo sessions..
Now they are children of the monarch in the future we might see them more and start to notice differences between the three..

Nope still 9, i do think that Amalia should have dressed different then her sisters. She looked like she need a more grown up look, but still she did look adorable. I just love seeing that chubby cute face of hers haha!

It's their dog Skipper, an English Labrador, he is with the family for years. In 2012 he was involved in an accident while duck hunting and quite injured.

No offence but do Maxima and WA know what individuality means? Their matching outfits were cute, when Catharina was 5-6.

I'm sure that Amalia's chubbiness will go away as she gets older. I always thought that her chubby face was adorable.

I hate matching outfits, even on twins! They aren't ever dressed the same when it's not a public event to be fair, but I do hate the matchy matchy.

I think they do dress them alike for formal occasions. It´s a question of balance for the photos. In other occasions they are not dressed alike. I think they looked lovely in their matching dresses. It´s an usual custum in royal families.
