Princesses of Netherlands pose for their father

Princesses Alexia, 2 ½, Ariane, 9 months, and Catharina-Amalia, [the family calls her Amalia for short] 4, pose for their father, Prince Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, 40, at the family’s vacation home in their mother’s homeland, Argentina. The princesses’ mother is Princess Máxima, 36.

The second names of all three of the daughters are after Dutch queens: Amalia’s for her grandmother, Queen Beatrix, Alexia’s for her great-grandmother, Queen Juliana and Ariane’s for her great-great-grandmother, Queen Wilhelmina.
