Princess Alexia, the second of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima’s three daughters, has become a magazine cover star in her mother’s native country.

The Argentinian edition of Hola! features the 15-year-old on its cover with the tagline: ‘Is she the rebel princess of her generation?’

Inside the magazine focused on her social media presence, mainly on Instagram, as well as her talents for playing the guitar and ‘mischief’.

The photoshoot for the magazine was taken during the royal family’s annual summer photocall in the grounds of Huis ten Bosch last week. The king said he saw his daughters’ use of social media channels such as Instagram and TikTok as ‘part of growing up’.

‘On the whole I think they handle it very responsibly,’ he said. ‘They’re aware of the dangers. Of course mistakes are made, either by themselves or others around them, which come to light. But these days social media is part of growing up.

‘Our daughters are very aware of the importance of privacy and they’re aware of the importance of family and each other.’
