Kings Guilherme and Máxima of Holland cancel the family tradition
The Dutch royal family has decided to cancel one of its most famous traditions. Twice a year, at the beginning of February and before the summer holidays, the kings William and maximum usually pose for a few photos next to their three daughters, the princesses Amalia, Alexia and Ariadne.
The first session usually takes place at the station ski from Lech, Austria, where this year the royal family refused to pose for photographers. The information was given in a statement, through the Government Information Service, which explained that now the kings only want to pose for family photos when all five family members are together, which which is currently not the case.
Note that the monarchs will only be on vacation with their youngest daughter. Princess Alexia, 16, is in Wales to study as a boarder at UWC Atlantic College, the same institution where Princess Leonor of Spain studies, and Crown Princess Amalia, 18, will do an internship at the foreigner, according to the local press.
The Dutch royal family also wants these group photographs to stop being linked to holiday moments, which is why in July last year the traditional summer photography did not take place either.
