AMSTERDAM — Prince Willem-Alexander and Princes Maxima are inviting hundreds of children from right across the Netherlands to attend the baptism of their daughter Princess Catharina-Amalia.

Fifteen children aged 12 to 13 from every province and from the four largest Dutch cities — Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht — will be given the chance to attend the event, newspaper Algemeen Dagblad reported.

In total, 225 children will attend the June christening of the Netherlands’ future queen, the Government Information Service (RVD) said on Tuesday. The children will be selected by the province.

Princess Amalia was born on 7 December 2003 in The Hague and will be christened on Saturday 12 June in the Grote of St. Jacobskerk in The Hague.
