A Dutch word that is slang for the female genetalia.
That's all? From the comments I was guessing she was going full out on typical Dutch-illnesses-style-curses.

It is a word that many people will use each day for minor setbacks. Esp. younger people will be hardly aware that they are cursing.
If this is super vulgar then I´ve heard some more expressive terms these days..I didnt expect her to say klote..No big deal whatshowever.

Great photos at the annual Lech session. Amalia is going to be a gorgeous young lady; as are the rest of WA and Maxima's children. They've always seemed to be a warm and loving family, everyone seems very close.

As for Alexia dropping the "c bomb" I agree that a lot of people nowadays probably don't realise that it's a particularly bad swear/curse word. It's said a lot amongst younger people. I work in a pre-school and one of the children was overheard saying it, and when we confronted them about where they heard it from, they said "mummy" (for us, we have to involve social services and alert them, so they can watch the family to make sure the children are being properly nurtured at home). Many people are careless when they're heated (which is the context the word is mostly used in, since it's not a nice word) and don't think about those around them. I've heard parents use the word in front of younger children in public before too. It's sadly just becoming normal. In Australia, IIRC it's actually used as a term amongst friends, much like "bro".

And it was a spontaneous adolescently (but unprincessy) reaction on loosing her ski sticks while gliding up in the ski lift.

Her grandmother probably would have said by loosing her ski sticks: "Hoe onhebbelijk!" ("How not to have!")

Imagine Princess Alexia would have reacted like that, then the memes of her with a beatrixian helmet coiffure and a poshy voice would have been all over the net...

It only shows she's human - and a teen!
I think we are all guilty of uttering the wrong thing at inopportune moments.

As long as it doesn't become a habit.
