She did not. The rule in the Netherlands nowadays is that students born before January 1 may move on with their classmates to third grade (first grade internationally); so doing a little less than the full 2 years of kindergarden. The school may decide to keep weaker students born in October, November or December one more year in Kindergarden. Amalia clearly is a bright student (otherwise she wouldn't have ended up at gymnasium level), so they indeed let her move on with her fellow students according to the rules.

But she did hop over a class or not? She had just become 14 in December and that is young for 3 Gymnasium (or is she now in 2 Gymnasium, I lost track).

No, she did not. It is indeed young, but for decades students that turned 12 in Septembr or October would start first grade of secondary school, and so turn 14 in the first months of grade 3. That has been extended to students born in November and December; including Amalia.

"I do not do fashion, I bén fashion" Princess Alexia says one of its accounts on social media. Although they continue shielding all, she shares her instagram on clothing with everyone. Until the end of April one could even decide which outfit was the princess school.

I didn't even know that Alexia has an Instagram account (and it's not private!)

I looked at the account and the girl in the profile picture does not look like Alexia (although it is hard to tell, because she does have one of those face filters on). Alexia has brown eyes and the girl in the photograph clearly has blue eyes.

I am not sure it's her on the profile picture either but the account seems to be Alexia's. Wearing the same clothes, taking a picture in the palace and a response from cousin Eloise are quite clear indications...

I think the account is genuine. Most of the comments are from fellow students at Sorghvliet, and also from her cousin Eloise, as has been mentioned. Some of the filters on Snapchat (where the filter in Alexia's profile picture is from) alter appearance and change eye colour so it could be Alexia in the photo, just a filtered version.
I'm kind of not surprised that Alexia has an Instagram, as she seems to be the most camera confident out of the AAA's and I've seen photos of her and Amalia with their iPhones at sailing events etc before, and now that they're teenagers they will feel more compelled to have social media like their peers. It seems that Alexia though doesn't intend to make her account so public as she isn't a regular poster (last post was from April) and doesn't have as much of a wide following as one would expect from a major member of a royal family on social media.

When do the AAA's go back to school? I'm surprised that there haven't been any photos yet as most schools in Europe seem to have gone back already or are going back later on this week.

They went back to school last week but only share a picture when they start attending a new school (primary or secondary). Next year we will get one (of Ariane with her bike leaving for school most likely) when it's Ariane's first day at secondary school.

Ah OK, thank you. I did wonder if photos were only released for more "educational milestones".

For the 15th birthday of HRH The Princess of Orange, the renowned Hermitage Amsterdam has a nice attention: all ladies with the names Catharina and/or Amalia in their passport will have free access to the premises on December 7th:

"The Hermitage has a warm heart for the royal family and with this attention it celebrates the birthday of the Princess. As Prince of Orange, King Willem-Alexander was a most esteemed lord protector of The Hermitage Amsterdam. He and his daughter are ancestors of Catherine The Great."

They can’t be ancestors of Catherine the Great. Did they mean descendants of Catherine the Great instead ?

I suppose their relation to Catherine the Great hails from Queen Anna Pavlovna, who was Catherine’s granddaughter , right ?

Yes, and through Hereditary Grand Duchess Elena Pavlovna of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, an elder sister of Queen Anna and the paternal great-grandmother of Prince(-consort) Hendrik.
