Breij, C - Amalia

Breij, C - Amalia
We have our first real conversation in her mother's office. She on the dark blue sofa, I in a ditto armchair, clumsily scribbling in the notebook on my lap. It's a new Leuchtturm, one of those chic ones with lines and page numbers, bought by a stationery shop especially for this purpose. The pages are blank, the cover yellow. “Why not orange?” Amalia asks. It's only when I look at her that I see her mocking look. With 'Amalia', Claudia de Breij continues the tradition that started with Hella Haasse who wrote a portrait of Beatrix (1955) and Renate Rubinstein who portrayed Willem-Alexander in 1985 on the occasion of their eighteenth birthday. The princess has taken Claudia de Breij to places that are important to her, including the Royal Stables, the beach and her school. They've had conversations about her motivation to waive her allowance, singing to yourself, making cocktails, how horseback riding helps clear your head, and the pros and cons of social media. Also discussed was what the kingship and her future role mean to her at the moment. The book shows who Amalia is now through the eyes of Claudia de Breij. The book contains photos from the princess's private archive. Hardback edition, in Dutch, 96 pages, illustrated.
