That is more a Nordic look: blond and blue eyes. Think of Mette Marit. While you bump against countless blondes in Scandinavian streets, in the Netherlands it is not thát blonde. Especially not in the big cities, where original Dutchies are more and more outnumbered by fellow citizens with foreign roots.

I love that they are not in matching dresses! They look great

I had been in all The Netherlands between 1994 to 1996 and I remember the really blond blue eyes like KWA but as you said now may be changed with so many foreign citizens!

Alexia, a wonderful beauty !

Lovely Princesses and they are all grown up. The pictures are sweet.

Love photos of these three sisters. Very attractive. There is just something about the youngest that just makes me smile. I just bet she will be the one in future years that will enhance the Dutch citizens. She has a bit of the imp in her eyes which I think makes her fun to be around. I look forward to watching them develop and the track their lives take.

Of the three girls she resembles her uncle Constantijn and her late grandfather prince Claus the most.

Those are beautiful photos of the AAA's, they have grown up so much! It's nice to see them wearing different dresses too. I think Alexia looks a lot like Maxima, especially when she smiles; whereas Amalia and Ariane look more like WA (but Ariane also has some resemblance to Maxima, IMO).

I have a question concerning Katharina Amalia; yesterday I was on tube and spottet a man reading a (german) newspaper. I saw there was an article that the P of Orange would be mobbed at school due to her overweight. Anyone heard this is true?!

Duc_et_Pair 02-18-2017 06:25 AM

I have not read or heard any such articles yet in Dutch media. After King's Day 2016 (last April) there were some nasty tweets about the appearance of the Princess but that was the usual trolling all public persons seem to have to endure.

Lee-Z 02-18-2017 07:10 AM

No, i haven't seen anything like that in dutch media either (as Duc said apart from the internet trolling after last King's day), but we don't get much information about the private life of the dutch royals in the dutch media due to the mediacode. It's quite common that there's more info in foreign media or internet forums like these than in the traditional dutch media..

Duc_et_Pair 02-18-2017 11:17 AM

The Dutch only see the Princesses on King's Day, which is broadcast live, for hours. Between last King's Day and the coming (April 27th) Amalia has changed a lot. I am afraid she better braces herself for a Twitter storm :(

13-jährige Kronprinzessin Amalia wird gemobbt | www.heute.at

Darum wird Prinzessin Amalia im Netz so übel gemobbt

Amalia der Niederlande: Für die Kronprinzessin hagelt es fiese Kritik | BUNTE.de

I guess I was wrong about school. It´s about cybermobbing on dutch newspaper internet platforms.

Spheno 02-18-2017 12:35 PM

People will speak about her overweight.
Almost all European head of states and high-profile politicians don't have overweight. People simply don't vote for fat people. Katharina Amalia is a future unelected head of state and she doesn't meet standards. The years to come will be difficult to her.

duke of poliganc 02-18-2017 12:53 PM

she is not overweight actually she looks much like her grandmother queen beatrix if you see pictures of young princess beatrix you will see the similarity , when she hits full puberty
like her grandmother she will get taller and her physical structure will improve .

If it wasn't her looks it would be something else. :sad:
We can only hope that her parents have prepared her well enough for her to be strong enough to not let it affect her.

I think it's a bit too far to say that she is fat IMO. A bit chubby perhaps, but some people are build like that.
I also think it's a bit far to conclude that it will be a problem for her in the eyes of the public in the future. There are many other things she could do wrong than being overweight.

Duc_et_Pair 02-18-2017 01:09 PM

The Princess is only 13 and in full transformation. I have seen plenty of ducklings becoming nice swans. Her mother Queen Máxima also had a puppy fat tendence. In her engagement period she was rounder in the face than today, still a stunning lady on her way to her fifties. Time will learn but when not Letizia-skinny, Princess Catharina-Amalia will still fit in the image of Hollands Welvaren, a saying for typically blossoming, large and ravissante Dutch blondes.

Marengo 02-18-2017 01:21 PM

The articles refer to the information that we have posted here in May 2016.

Perhaps they had a slow news day and the intern searched the web. They 'forget' to mention a date, but the article in the Telegraaf newspaper that they refer to, dates from the day after king's day.

I was a little blown away seeing this, I must confess. But mobbing people for their body problems one just cannot do!
