  1. Bon anniversaire ! Mais c'est l'année prochaine qu'il y aura le "jack pot" !
    Il y en a qui écrivent que cette princesse a un beau visage. Je ne trouve pas. En 2020, on a eu de nombreuses séances de photos, pas toujours heureuses et très belles. Les cheveux détachés, bof ! Mais le pire est la robe, qui n'est pas très seyante, la ceinture fait remonter le devant de la robe. Espérons qu'elle va apprendre à s'habiller de manière plus élégante. Surtout si elle ne copie pas certains excès vestimentaires de sa mère, qui est parfois en décalage avec la cérémonie à laquelle elle participe. Très déçue par cette famille, ces dernières semaines.

    1. What a nasty comment. Can't you save the venom for a day that isn't the birthday of someone who is actually still legally a child?

      Ok, Beatrice is not beautiful, this girl in her teens is not beautiful and also badly dressed (I am getting goosebumps in reading you),some other royal is boring.
      You only like Sofia and...yourself?
      Who are you going to hit next?

    3. I honestly think that she's got a very pretty face but even if you don't, it's just very rude to say.
      People can't do anything about their face, except put on make-up but that's not what you mean, so I don't really know what the point is in pointing out that you don't like someone's face.

    4. I wonder why you are writing in French.
      Why don' t you write in your strange mix English/ Italian like the one you used in the post addressed to me when talking about Beatrice?
      You can always be detected very easily.

  2. Contrairement à certains/certaines, je trouve qu'elle est belle avec ses petites rondeurs ; il est vrai qu'au niveau vestimentaire, je suppose qu'elle s'habille selon ses goûts même si elle ne suit pas vraiment la mode - Bien jolie quand même ; bon et joyeux anniversaire au milieu de toute sa famille !

    1. I think she has an excellent role model in her father. He can give her good advice -- from his own experience -- on keeping and maintaining a healthy weight and level of fitness. I have watched him over the years and whatever his secret is, I wish I had known it when I was Catharina-Amalia's age.

  4. Lovely girl. She is growing up and soon will complete high school. Then will begin another interesting phase of her life - a mix of personal ambitions and royal duties, like other crown princes and princesses of similar age to her. Happy Birthday and best wishes!

  5. She was born to be Queen, not born to be a size 0 model or a generic Hollywood actress, okay? Not everyone fits the beauty ideal of their time, in fact most people don't. And beauty ideals change...
    If you'd look a bit beyond that, you might judge others and perhaps also yourselves less harshly.
    I think she's beautiful in her own way, she has got lovely hair, her mother's dark eyes and her grandmother's face.
    I very much hope that this girl won't get an eating disorder or self-esteem issues because the media and strangers online are constantly commenting on her looks and weight. Not everybody is thin, it's fine and royals also come in all shapes and forms, as do other people.
    A very happy 17th Birthday to Amalia and I hope she can enjoy her youth! ❤️

    2. Amalia was a chubby baby and that has stayed with her. NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT, so don't hate me; I'm just saying that unlike her sisters she is on the heavier side. It is what it is. I think she is beautiful.

      Fashionwise, the dress she is wearing (from the summer photo shoot) was probably not the best choice for several reasons.

    4. She is a natural and fresh beauty!!! I read so many nasty and non-constructive comments above...! OMG!! just focus on what is really important! She seems healthy, happy and low profile which is great! She also has an great family! I wish you, Princess Amalia, a Super Happy Verjaardag!!! Carol from Argentina (where Queen Máxima was born)

  8. Très jolie couleur bleu-roi de ce manteau dont la coupe va à merveille à Camilla ; j'adore sa broche turquoise de forme fleurie avec petits diamants au centre - Il semble que le prince Charles aime particulièrement ce manteau camel et toujours une main dans la poche ; cela aurait tendance à le plisser et déformer !

  10. I would like to say that if this dignified young lady chose that beautiful dress, she has exquisite taste and we have a lot to look forward to as she participates in future royal engagements!

  11. I agree. Looking at that lovely face in the top photo, I think to myself "Wow, this girl is a true beauty." I predict that in -- oh, say 3 to 5 years -- she's going to be the teenage crush of a lot of boys in the Netherlands 🙂.

  12. Beauty is from within and comes in all sizes. Key is for her to keep within healthy range of wt. As for those making nasty comments re her wt or appearance, please ask yourself how you will feel if a stranger say that to you.

    1. Agreed.
      Moreover, I want to ask the one who wrote the first nasty comment above how she would feel if someone were body shaming her children.

  13. I think there is no reason for hiding her taille and her not-zero-size body. She has perfect proportions, she *does* have a taille and a very feminine body. I don't really like the dress but I would not like it on any other woman too. For me, Amalia is amazingly beautiful in her 17th year - skin, hair and a fully blown female body.

  14. Maybe it is time that the anonymous comments aren't posted. I will gladly go back to using a screen name if the rule was enforced. I would like to know if Anon 2:17 is the same person that is obsessed with Beatrice Borromeo.

    We have a new trend of bickering over who is beautiful and who is not. This time it is against a minor child. What is going on here? Not one of us here would want our physical appearance picked apart. We can't change our genetics. We can only change what we wear, how we style our hair, and use makeup. That is what we should be discussing, not the God-given face and body of these women. It is cruel, superficial, and petty. True beauty is defined by who we are inside. Physical beauty can be appreciated, but not to the detriment of others. By my definition of true beauty, there are many ugly people commenting here. Women should be celebrating each other, lifting them up, not finding new ways to put them down.

    1. I don't understand why people are still posting anonymously. I thought there was a rule that everyone should use a name. It doesn't have to be your own name, so people can still be effectively anonymous. Apart from giving some posters something to hide behind, anonymity makes it very hard to follow conversations where half the posters have the same name.

      Yes, I am sure that Anon.2:17 is the same person who is obsessed with Beatrice Borromeo... and' bored' by someone else as well.
      She can change languages though her Google Translator, even ask people not to bash her, but she is always there.
      I get the feeling she is going to change her harsh judgements into good ones just to be accepted by this community.

    3. @Cath, "I don't understand why people are still posting anonymously. ": because a rule that is not applied is not a rule.

  15. Happy Birthday, and may she always be happy. We share a birthday her and I and I think she is lovely. People that make critical comments about others are the ones with issues and should take a good long look at themselves.

  16. I agree that we should go back to identified names and stop allowing anonymous comments.

  17. A beautiful young woman wearing a lovely summer dress. I think the dress is not the right choice for her, and the belt does not improve the look. - Ellie

  18. this is a fashion blog--comments on fashion must be allowed, the dress does the princess no favours--she is a big girl and the dress makes her look even bigger. More power to the princess that she doesn't care.

    1. Totally agree it is a fashion blog and people should be allowed to comment on the fashion. But saying an outfit or dress doesn't suit a bigger girl is getting personal. She is 17 and may make some mistakes in the fashion world but maybe she likes what she is wearing. My sister at this age constantly dressed in an oversized bitty old cardigan even at a wedding because she thought her breast were too big. She thought it looked great and she was comfortable. I guess what I'm saying is Amelia is a real person with real feelings and everyone should remember that.

  19. Happy birthday Amalia
    A lovely special face and gorgeous hair ( probably her mother would have liked to have Amalia's hair). I have never liked this dress on her. Especially the belt so high up makes her a bit pompous.

  20. he dress itself is not nice. They seem to be made of crumpled material. The dress doesn't look good on the model either.

  22. I do not post very often, as there's there's always always a few who have to be nit picky. To me, Amalia looks lovely. Her hair is natural and not the colors of the rainbow. Her complexion is healthy and she has a soft and sweet smile.
    Why some of you insist on saying nasty things is beyond me. The chances of her reading this is slim to none but suppose she did? How would you feel to have your hurtful comments read by a 17 year old young woman just starting to come into her own?
    There's an old saying, if you can't think of anything nice to say than keep your damn mouth shut!!!

    1. I agree with you. It is not that hard to imagine how it feels to be criticized that way, but empathy is lacking by a few. I left this blog once because of the cruel, off topic remarks being posted. Having registered members with screen names might help this problem.

  23. On n'est pas à Monaco où de très jeunes filles de la famille portaient le plus souvent des tenues osées et très vulgaires. Elle a juste 16 années révolues, est grande et robuste, et souhaite sans doute laisser au temps faire son œuvre.

    1. No, absolutely. Let's make unpleasant judgemental comments about the children and young women in another family. That makes everything so.much better.
