You could hear a collective 'aww' after that too. So cute. By that you could tell she's aware that will be her one day.

The "griffier" is Godefridus Jan "Fred" de Graaf who has been President of the Joint Sessions since June 28, 2011. Here are his remarks to which Amalia nodded:

"Your [W-A] role is hereby strengthened by the support of your wife, who stands at your side, and your three daughters, who as they get older undoubtedly will express their own insights to you. That your eldest daughter, Princess Catharina-Amalia, is the first Princess of Orange and is in our midst this morning, should not go unmentioned on this festive day."

The impression I've got of Amalia at the abdication, from what I read and heard is that she is a bright, self-confident little lady.

However, what is actually known about her and her younger sister's characters and personalities?
What are your impressions of the girls now?

Who is the talkative and outgoing of them, who is quiet and shy, who is full of fun and mischief? Who are they?

Absolutely, agree!

Judging by their outfits during the coronation ceremonies, Maxima still likes to dress them identically, or at least matching.

I feel Amalia might be getting a bit too old for it, is she 10 yet?

I would have love to see the girls with each of them in the colours fothe flag, may be the same design dress, but one in red the other in blue and the other in white!

To be honest, I think they are pretty much kept out of the media except for official photo sessions..
Now they are children of the monarch in the future we might see them more and start to notice differences between the three..

I doubt things will change until Amalia is 16.

I wonder when they will announce the summer annual photosession with their girls. Maybe they are too busy to do one this year?

Nope still 9, i do think that Amalia should have dressed different then her sisters. She looked like she need a more grown up look, but still she did look adorable. I just love seeing that chubby cute face of hers haha!

Yeah, I like how she is sitting like a little lady. She's cute. She seems to be her own person while Amalia and Alexia are buddies.

It's their dog Skipper, an English Labrador, he is with the family for years. In 2012 he was involved in an accident while duck hunting and quite injured.

No offence but do Maxima and WA know what individuality means? Their matching outfits were cute, when Catharina was 5-6.

I'm sure that Amalia's chubbiness will go away as she gets older. I always thought that her chubby face was adorable.

I hate matching outfits, even on twins! They aren't ever dressed the same when it's not a public event to be fair, but I do hate the matchy matchy.
