Triple A for Dutch princesses

The new Dutch princess has been given the name Ariane Wilhelmina Maxima Ines. The baby, born on Tuesday night, is princess Máxima and crown prince Willem-Alexander’s third daughter. The couple’s other daughters are Amalia and Alexia.

The name was made public as the prince formally registered the baby’s birth at the town hall in The Hague on Friday morning.
During the ceremony, acting mayor Jetta Klijnsma said that all children had the right to live in justice, freedom and security. She welcomed the new princess as a ‘citizen of the world’.
