Some 850 guests packed into the Klooster church in The Hague on Saturday to celebrate the christening of Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and Crown Princess Maxima’s third daughter Ariane. The six-month old princess was the picture of composure until the moment of her baptism when she let out a hearty wail which prompted a sympathetic look from her mother.

Ariane’s older sisters Amalia, three, and two-year-old Alexia, who were dressed in matching pink frocks and purple capes, enjoyed playing with their one-year-old cousin Countess Leonore.

    Cynthia, I agree w/ you. I know many don’t like the royals (consider them good for nothing.) Well, we have enough about celebs who are good for nothing! 🙂 These pictuers do remind you of a fairy tale. I LOVE the royal Christening gowns.

    I love to see the royal babies and their parents. They are so very elegant in attire. It is like a dream.

    Awww! I just love their royal family. These girls are just so precious in their formal outfits, especially on the pic with their Daddy Willem-Alexander. The oldest girl is a copy of her dad (a bit too chunky ;( ). Mom Maxima is the embodiment of composure – when my aughter cried her heart out during her baptism, I was such a nervous wreck that I just wanted to take her away as far from the curch as possible…
