On her left wrist, she wore a watch with a familiar jewel: the diamond bracelet featuring her family's initials interspersed with hearts and evil eye symbols.

And for all of you who love rings, here's a treat! She's wearing at least three, including her wedding and engagement rings. On her right hand, she wears the ring given to her by King Willem-Alexander to mark the birth of Princess Alexia.

You'll note that Catharina-Amalia is on crutches; she recently sprained her ankle. It's been a heck of a couple of months for injuries with this royal family. Her younger sister, Princess Alexia (who wears the blue dress in these photos) broke her leg while skiing in February and had to have surgery to repair the break. And Queen Maxima is recovering from a mild concussion suffered during a fall on July 1. Somebody get some bubble wrap for these royal ladies!
