Today new pictures of princesses Amalia, Alexia and Ariane have been posted on the Royal Household website. The photos were taken in July in Noordeinde Palace.

It looks like they were taken at the day of the photo call. Only Alexia is wearing a different dress.

I'm not really impressed by these pictures - although Ariane looks happy.

Nice to see new official pictures of the girls. Though I must confess I'm not fan of them. They've had better shots in the past, particularly the close-up pictures which are the best. But these newly photos aren't that great. They look weird and awkward actually.

The previous set was made by Erwin Olaf, a renowned artist + photographer and clearly intended to make it glamorous.


This set was "just" made by a photographer from the press pool. Pose - click - ready. That will be the difference.


The pictures were made in the Small Ballroom at Noordeinde Palace: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...r_253-8869.jpg

Yes, but I wasn't talking about those pictures from Erwin Olaf. I was mentioning the close-up pictures of the girls, face only.

I thought that set was made by the King himself. The girls are now ladies, it was clearly the intention to include the grandeur of the room. They are passing to another station of royal life.

The latest pictures (July 2020) were made by Martijn Beekman (inside Huis ten Bosch) - including both a close-up and a less-close-up picture of each of the princesses.
In 'fall 2019' a picture taken by the king of Amalia was released (outside)
Another set of pictures dates from March 2018 made by Erwin Olaf (inside Koninklijk Paleis Amsterdam)
The close-up set dates from April 2017 and was also by Erwin Olaf (as a present for the king's 50th birthday) - including the final picture linked by Kathia_Sophia. (inside)
Another outside session was done in the fall of 2016 by the 'court photographer' Jeroen van der Meyde (including the middle picture linked by Kathia_Sophia)
The other close-up posted by Kathia_Sophia dates from fall 2014 - also by Jeroen van der Meyde (outside)

I still think the 2008 series was rather marvelous, including this one of all three princesses - and the future queen on her little throne.

Alexia looks very mature. She could easily pass for a 25 year old.

These pictures were made in the white rococo salon of Noordeinde Palace, also called "Small Ballroom". In 1937 Princess Juliana and Prince Bernhard had their civil wedding in this room.

The room has a removable wall (on this picture in grey) to enlarge the ballroom with the adjacent room:

I fear that's not a compliment for a teenage girl.

And I think she wouldn't be offended if she had heard it; teenage girls want to grow up quickly.

Heu, when I look around in the Netherlands, the adolescents are BIG and mature. Big because Dutchies are the tallest people in the world. And because of the freedom, the own responsibility they enjoy and the typical streetwiseness, Dutch adolescents often look more mature than their age. Alexia will be pleased you consider her 25.

It's not her size and stature that makes her look 25. It is the clothing, pose, makeup, groomed eyebrows...etc. Like many teenagers her age, she clearly wants to look like a young adult woman.

Lovely photos of the AAAs and I particularly like the location they were taken in!
