Princess Ariane getting better

Princess Ariane, the 3-week-old daughter of crown prince Willem-Alexander and princess Máxima who was hospitalised yesterday, is getting better, the state information service RVD said on Thursday. .

Ariane, who was born on April 10, was taken ill on Tuesday night and rushed to the Leiden University Medical Centre with breathing problems.
Tests show that the baby has a viral infection. She has, however, been treated with antibiotics just in case the infection proved to be bacterial.
Yesterday doctors said she would stay in hospital for a week.
