Her complete name is Catharina-Amalia Beatrix Carmen Victoria, the last three in honour of her grandmothers and her godmother, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden.

By Royal Decree of 25 January 2002, nr. 41 is determined that all children of Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima will bear the title of Royal Highness, Prince (Princess) of the Netherlands (in Dutch, Koninklijke Hoogheid, Prins (Prinses) der Nederlanden) and Prince (Princess) of Orange-Nassau (in Dutch, Prins (Prinses) van Oranje-Nassau). Following the tradition, Princess Amalia is styled as De Erfprinses van Oranje (The Hereditary Princess of Orange): she will become the Princess of Orange when her father accedes to the throne.

Princess Amalia was born at 17:01 in the Bronovo Hospital in The Hague. She was 50 centimeters (19.7 inches) long and weighed 3310 grams (7 pounds, 5 ounces). [1]

Life

Princess Amalia lives with her parents and her younger sisters Alexia and Ariane at Villa Eikenhorst on the royal estate De Horsten in Wassenaar.

Baptism

She was baptised on June 12, 2004[2] by Reverend Carel ter Linden in the Grote, or St. Jacob's, Church in The Hague. Her godparents are her uncle Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands, Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, Marc ter Haar (her father's friend), Herman-Diederik Tjeenk Willink (Vice-president of the Council of State), Samantha van Welderen Baroness Rengers-Deane (her mother's friend) and her uncle Martín Zorreguieta.

Names

The official origins of her names:

Succession to the Throne

She is second in line to the Dutch throne, and because the Netherlands is under full lineal primogeniture she will not be replaced in the line of succession by any future children of her parents. So, providing her father and grandmother the Queen predecease her or abdicate correspondingly, and she does not marry without permission of Parliament, she will become Queen of the Netherlands. She is 799th in the line of succession to the British Throne as she is a direct descend of King George II's eldest daughter, Anne, Princess Royal. In accordance with the British Act of Settlement of 1701, her father was removed from the line of succession after he married a Roman Catholic.
