Princess Amalia of the Netherlands, heiress to the throne of the House of Orange-Nassau, is much talked about among our northern neighbours. All her actions are scrutinized and the Dutch expect her to be above reproach.

At the age of 18, she refused to be able to benefit from her royal endowment, preferring to continue her life on behalf of her parents. An unexpected decision but praised by the press and the Dutch taxpayer.

After celebrating her birthday without respecting the measures imposed on the confinement linked to the coronavirus, Amalia had made the headlines of the newspapers, being judged as living in a privileged world which does not respect the rules.

After spending a sabbatical year, the young woman began a bachelor’s degree in Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics (PPLE) at the University of Amsterdam last September.

While her younger sister Alexia continues her schooling in England, Amalia has preferred to stay at home, where she is increasingly involved in public life.

After having participated for the first time with her parents at the opening of the session of Parliament on September 20, which was very rowdy, the young woman made another remarkable appearance on social networks this Tuesday on the occasion of the day animal world. On a photo that honors animals, we can see Amalia on her horse, named Mojito.

“We paid him for this horse”, reacts a user on Twitter. Other subscribers to the royal account, prefer to share in connection with this publication articles on the precarious life of the elderly, or articles denouncing the living conditions in retirement homes in contrast to the expensive leisure of the young woman.

To support the young woman, some twittos also share photos of their horse, believing that the crown princess is not the only person in the Kingdom to indulge in horse riding.

According to several opinion polls, Dutch people’s trust in their government and in politicians in general is at historically low levels.

According to an EenVandaag poll, only 15% of the 30,000 respondents still have confidence in the government.

High inflation, rising energy prices, housing shortages and anger over the government’s climate plans have contributed to this drop in confidence, polls show. The Dutch have been multiplying anti-government demonstrations in recent weeks and there is no doubt that this kind of publication does not please the Dutch who wonder how they will spend the winter.
