Princess Amalia turns seven

Princess Amalia, second in line to the Dutch throne, celebrates her seventh birthday on Tuesday.

The traditional Princess Amalia concert will be held in her honour in The Hague and an old Dakota plane owned by her great grandfather is to be named after her by KLM boss Peter Hartman.
Amalia herself will not be at the plane naming ceremony or the concert because she has to go to school, news agency ANP reports.
