Welcoming message from the university

The University of Amsterdam wrote a welcoming message for the princess on Twitter.

In it, they say: “We are proud that Princess Amalia has chosen the PPLE study, a challenging and versatile study program at the university. We wish her, like all freshmen, a lot of success and fun with her education.”

Breaking traditions

Princess Amalia’s father, King Willem-Alexander, and her grandmother, Princess Beatrix, both studied in Leiden.

Going further back into history, the King’s aunt Margriet and grandmother Juliana also completed their studies in Leiden.
