Princess Alexia appears to have been taking make-up tips from her stylish mother, sporting a natural look with deftly applied shadow to make her eyes pop. 

A keen horse rider and hockey player, the young royal also sings and plays the guitar. 

The last photos we saw of the Dutch princesses was back in April, when the family gathered to celebrate the 53rd birthday of the King at their home, Palace Huis ten Bosch in The Hague. 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the royals had to cancel the celebrations of Kingsday in Maastricht, so took video calls with people around the country instead.
