The special bond between Queen Máxima and her daughters

On December 7, 2003, Máxima became a mother. Amalia is now 17 years old, Alexia 15 and Ariane 14. We can no longer speak of ‘princesses’, the ladies are real princesses that we gradually get to know better.

What goes on behind the palace doors between the queen and her daughters remains only a guess. Yet the Oranges sometimes lift a small tip of the veil. For example, Máxima recently said at the opening of the King’s Games that she and her daughters exercise via apps. Due to the corona crisis, sports as a team came to a standstill for a while. “It was an issue that they could not play hockey. But we tackled that together as a family”, Máxima said about it. “Thank goodness we had digital assets. We had apps that let us do small workouts.”

The lockdown has often caused stress at Huis ten Bosch Palace. Last year our queen said during the annual photo session: “It doesn’t matter how big the house is, we are always on top of each other. We have three teenagers, which is not always easy.” Of course, every (royal) house has its cross, but according to Máxima the lockdown also brought beautiful things. “We differ on how things should be done, but it also brought a lot of understanding and respect for each other.”

There are a number of times in the year when we see Máxima in public with her three daughters: the winter sports holiday in Lech, the annual photo session in the summer and King’s Day.

Princess Amalia gave her first interview during King’s Day 2019. Quite exciting, we can imagine. Fortunately, she was assisted by her parents. Máxima in particular made sure that the ice was broken a bit for her daughter. When asked if Amalia had prepared for King’s Day, Amalia said: “Well, actually very little.” After which Máxima interrupted her and supported her that she had prepared for the regional quiz: “That is not true at all! She researched all nine municipalities, she made cheat sheets, because she wanted to win.”

If we have to rely on looks, Alexia might look like her mother the most. But according to royalty expert Justine Marcella, there are also clear traits of Willem-Alexander: “When you hear that voice, you can also hear her father at the age of fifteen. That sound and way of talking seems quite good.”

What is striking about the three girls is that they are increasingly following in the footsteps of their mother when it comes to clothing. All three sometimes raid their mother’s wardrobe. Understandable, of course, if your mother’s wardrobe is filled with the most beautiful designer items.

Amalia has already been spotted wearing her mother’s cloak and ski suit. During King’s Day she was allowed to borrow a green bag from her mother. Alexia also borrowed a bag from her mother last King’s Day. Earlier she already wore a denim jacket and a blouse of the queen. Ariane’s outfit was extra special this King’s Day. She was wearing a coat that her mother wore during the photo opportunity shortly after her birth.
