Ok, I feel very silly. Where does it say "Open Stream"?

I don't speak Dutch :( but, a wonderful video anyway. I love the way Maxima and W-A get distracted by what the children are doing.
Thank you very much. :)

BeztrixFan -- I am very sorry -- I clicked on the link Misshelen supplied and then on the Koningen Beatrix section and this time the video just started! -- the second screen never opened up with the "open stream" on it. I have no idea why clicking on "Koningen Beatrix" produced the second screen. Hopefully my previous post is now deleted.

Now my question is -- can someone tell us what Willem and then Maxima said when they were interviewed?

Amalia looks absolutely adorable in her little yellow sundress. She reminds me a bit of Ava Philippe, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Philippe's daughter. Alexia has grown up fast and of course Queen Beatrix, WA, and Maxima all look lovely too. :)

Great photos. Thanks so much for posting. I love the matching dresses and names of the little Princesses. They really don't look much alike though!

Beautiful family!!! IMO, the baby looks like her father and Amalia like her grandma. Same face, same expressions. The baby is the father in a dress. They look very much alike. They are both beautiful!!

Indeed the girl is adorable-looking and she certainly has the right set of parents to guide her onto the path of the all-around pro fessional career-royal, but to say she's set to be a great queen, is jumping the gun a decade or, oh, four, perhaps, in my opinion.

Unless being a great monarch comes down to waving one's hands extensively to the crowds at successions of public events, in which case, there's at least tens of thousands of little girls in the Netherlands who look almost exactly like little Amalia and could certainly be trained to do the same thing.
But luckily the role of monarch in the Netherlands goes well beyond mere smilling and waving in public. It remains to be seen whether the Dutch will be amenable to a queen Amalia, or any monarch for that matter, in four-and-a-half decades. Luckily dad Alexander seems to be down to earth enough to probably instill the realisation into his kids that they better learn a real craft--after all, he did, too: he's a professional pilot actually.

As for Amalia's little sister, as Joumada said, Alexia looks like a carbon copy of grandfather Jorge Zorreguieta (as well as her mother)--the ex-Videla 'government' minister may not have been allowed to the wedding, boy does the man get his 'revenge', his dna so clearly being mixed among the Orangje offspring!

"open stream" is on the right side of the box at the very bottem, media player box pops up, takes awhile to buffer.

These pictures are adorable! I would like to see a picture of Queen Beatrix with all of her grandchildren around her. That would be an awesome picture!

Great pictures and such a lovely family. The girls are just to adorable and Queen beatrix seems so relaxed and joyfull. As others noticed, I just love that she and Maxima seem so comfortable with each other.

In the NOS videoclip the Prince said that he hoped that due to picture opportunities like this the media will leave the princesses alone and that they can grow up as normal people without the feeling that they are haunted. He said that if his children would not have this feeling that he has failed as a parent.

Maxima said that she was looking forward to spending more time with her daughters, as she has been rather busy. She was looking forward to play with them, read to them etc. Willem-Alexander also remarked that both were fond of the water & swimming.

I agree with him that in general, it's none of our business what they do after hours so to speak. If anything, that would dilute the mystique that's necessary for keeping the monarchy as an institution intact, not to mention the very argument that it's simply inhumane to stalk people.

That said, there's also the view that the more pro-active paparazzi would be vis-a-vis Alexander's young family, the more we, mere mortals, would be aware of the very cushy leisurly life these people get to have, while being paid lavishly for, let's face it, not that much, tangibly, in return.

Don't get me wrong, I understand where Alexander is coming from and in his shoes, I'd probably act the same, but, to quote movie star Uma Thurman, there's something very, let's face it, hypocrite, about being paid exhorbitant amounts to be the <face>, the spokesperson, of a product, or a country in this case, being in the lime light like that with all the extensive perks, privileges and prerogatives that existence comes with, yet demanding privacy all the same.

That's the very essence of my own ambivalence toward modern monarchy, as much as I can see the beneficial side of the concept, and as much as I'm a die-hard fan of Beatrix, who in my opinion is the personification of what a good king should be.

All the same, these pictures seem to show a cohesive family, which of course is the point.

I saw the footage and what I was most impressed with is how well Maxima speaks Dutch, which is a very difficult language to learn, let alone master. She really speaks it miles and miles better than Mathilde I think.
