  1. Ravissante princesse aux formes pulpeuses ; j'adore ses cheveux dont en particulier, leur couleur que beaucoup de dames royales pourraient lui envier. En cette journée particulière, je lui souhaite un bon et joyeux anniversaire entourée par toute sa famille !

  3. Why on earth are they picturing the Princess of Orange with such poor lighting, all dark and gloomy? She would look so much more lively and fresh, just the young woman she is, with a bit more light and a more cheerful atmosphere. The red dress also would look fantastic with brighter lighting.

      @DSC: Perhaps Amalia herself chose that setting; there's nothing wrong with it. There've been lots of other "bright, light, & cheerful" photos of her down through the years. Maybe she's showing she's serious about her role & entering adulthood. Why do commenters here abhor dark colors so much, smh. *Regina

      Also not the biggest fan of the first picture where the background appears to be pitch black. But in the full body version, I absolute love the contrast and the background she chose. I think it's very appropriate for a December birthday and in a year where everybody has been struggling a bit. This radiates calmness and warmth and I like it very much.

    She appears to be a smart, impressive young woman and I applaud her for showing such maturity at her young age. As for the fashion, this dress looks very good with a flattering design and color but agree it would be nice to see this is a brighter photo. It does seem like we rarely see her smile, but perhaps she is more comfortable this way.

    She is a lovely very intelligent lady. And really friendly in interviews etc. A beautyful face with amazing natural thick hair. But sorry she really should lose a little bit of weight also for healthy reasons.

      Not your health so stop with the faux concern. Her weight is own business.

      Commenting a young woman's weight really isn't appropriate, even if you begin your comment with "sorry" and refer to health reasons. I'm sure her health is well taken care of. People may have all kind of medical conditions that make losing weight more difficult -- thyroid disorders, for instance -- and as there are too many examples of dangerously anorectic young females, it's great that she is boldly herself and shows us that not everyone has to be thin as a stick. As for the lightning, it reminds me of the chiaroscuro of Renaissance paintings (seen also in Rembrandt's paintings). Very elegant and artistic photos of a beautiful and self-confident young lady.

      Mentioning her weight, then excusing it by saying it is out of concern for her health, is still wrong. That is none of your business. That is between her and her doctor. YOU DON'T BRING UP A WOMAN'S WEIGHT!!! It can only go wrong. If she has any problems, medically or otherwise, it is not for you, a perfect stranger, to discuss on a public forum. This can trigger women with eating disorders, even one's in recovery. Please learn not to do this.

    4. I think she looks healthier than the super skinny Leticia or Catherine.

    5. Reacting to caune; overweight is unanimously seen as a hasard factor on health on the longer term, that has nothing to do with how people look (in their younger years). You would need to compare individuals in their performance for physical exercises.
      Regarding Amalia, I have a lot of sympathy for her in the present circumstances in the NL concerning her security.

  7. A lovely photo of the Princess of Orange. This dress is a beautiful color, she looks splendid

  8. She is a very good looking girl and while I like the red dress, I'm not sure it is the most flattering fit for her body shape. I also think it's quite an "old" dress--I have similar dresses and I am many years older than Princess Amalia

    Agree and agree, i think that she chose the picture out of many, so even if we find it it dark and serious is her choice.
    I also don't rather this look, but she needs to find her own style, let's give her grace, is difficult for any teenagers, let alone fire a queen in waiting

    I like this very much on her and I think the moody lighting of the photo suits both the warm, rich red of the dress and her gorgeous hair. (V.M.)

    Happy Birthday to the Crown Princess! Love her hair and dress--very pretty and very flattering color for Catharina-Amalia. Do wish the lighting had not been so dark so can't say I am fan of the photo.

    I remember when she was born, the Orange community of the town gave us at the exit roads "beschuit met muisjes" A Dutch tradition when a baby is born.
    I like the dress , but she looks sorrow. Not her best year I think everything she is experiencing now.
