The Princess of Orange reaches her majority

 Oh my,  Catharina-Amalia Beatrix Carmen Victoria, whose official title is HRH The Princess of Orange, celebrates her 18th birthday today.   This means she has reached her majority and can succeed to the throne without the need of a regent.

 Princess Amalia is the eldest of three daughters of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands.  She has two younger sisters, HRH Princess Alexia and HRH Princess Ariane.   Her majority means new responsibilities.  She automatically becomes a member of the Council of State.   

But do not expect to see the Princess of Orange take on royal duties.  Princess Amalia is in her gap year and is expected to attend university next year.

She has such classic Dutch looks, which will be an asset to her. Seems to be a very sensible and level-headed young woman.
