A sweet little girl soon to be a crown princess. I wonder if she is aware of the change in her life. All my best wishes to the royal couple and their girls.

Beautiful girls!!!
And yes, Amalia is aware, as her parents stated in the interview. She even asked daddy " how many years will he be King?", she sure wanted to know when she'll be Queen but her daddy said "now that you wanted to know"

I hadn't realised Amalia has grown so much! How similar she is to Beatrix, Juliana and Wilhelmina when they were of that age....definately a future Queen of the Netherlands!!

Definitely like Beatrix. And no..thank God she is not clumsy and awkward like Juliana..
By the way, wont the other daughters be styled "The Princess xxxx.."?
Like British? Ok..Maybe since the original styling is in Dutch, the "The.." is not that significant in continental royals..

I was thinking what would have been nice but i imagine difficult to organise - would have been a picture of the young generation of second in line to thrones before Amalia became the heir.

It would have made a nice picture to have Amalia, Christian, Ingrid, Estelle, Leonor and Elizabeth in one picture together as the heirs to the current heirs

You can still have the photo on the premise they will all reign around the same time. It would be a wonderful photo.

P.S. How odd that little Amalia and the Prince of Wales now have something in common!

^ Yes, very interesting. It'd be an interesting conversation between the two of them should there be an opportunity.

Maxima shared that "Amalia realizes very well whose turn it is." When Willem-Alexander told Amalia that he would become King, her first question to him was, "How long will you do it?" His response to her was "Wouldn't you like to know!"

She was adorable throughout the whole day. When the griffier (?? I don't even know what he was and how you'd call it in English) mentioned in the church that she is the first Princess of Orange, she nodded the way Beatrix has always done. You could hear a collective 'aww' after that too. So cute. By that you could tell she's aware that will be her one day.

That nod was perfect. And indeed exactly her grandmother. :-D
