Princess Catharina-Amalia of Orange, Crown Princess of the Netherlands, passed her high school diploma with distinction. After a year's break, during which the eldest daughter of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima traveled a lot and completed various internships, the future Queen of the Netherlands' career plans are now clear. As the Dutch royal family announced via Instagram, Princess Amalia will begin a demanding course of study in Amsterdam from September this year.
Princess Amalia wants to stand on her own feet
Princess Amalia has therefore decided to do a bachelor's degree in politics, psychology, law and economics. It seems important to the Dutch royal family that the princess did not enjoy any royal bonus when she was admitted: "The study has an application and selection process that the Princess of Orange went through completely last year," says the Instagram Post. You want to keep your exact study time private.
Princess Amalia turned 18 on December 7, 2021. She has been the first in line for the Dutch throne since her grandmother Beatrix abdicated around ten years ago. She caused a stir last year with the announcement that she would for the time being waive the around 1.6 million euros per year that she would be legally en titled to from the age of majority. She communicated this decision in a letter to Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
