Princess Amalia: This is where Princess Amalia will live in Amsterdam

Princess Amalia will leave her familiar surroundings in September and move to Amsterdam for her studies. Now the heir to the throne has found her new home.

After graduating from high school with distinction and being able to think carefully about which career path she would like to pursue in the months that followed, Princess Amalia, 18, has now made her decision. The heir to the throne will start her bachelor’s degree in Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics (PPLE) at the University of Amsterdam next September. The palace announced this on the official Instagram account of the Dutch royal family at the end of May.

New phase of life in Amsterdam

The court also emphasized that there is an application and selection process for the course “that the Princess of Orange went through in full last year.” In addition, it was made clear that the “study time of the princess […] considered private”.

House with escape route and complex security system

In order to be able to guarantee this, Amalia will live in her own accommodation with her friends. A room in a dorm is “simply not an option for the bodyguards,” explains royal house expert Rick Evers. Justine Marcella, editor-in-chief of the magazine “Vorsten”, also emphasizes: “There must also be room for the bodyguards in the house, because the princess has to be guarded 24 hours a day. Of course, they don’t sleep in their room, but the house has to be big enough be so that they have their own place.” The house must also have an escape route and a complex security system.

Princess Amalia has found her new home

Now it is clear where exactly Princess Amalia will live in Amsterdam. As the magazine “Weekend” claims to have found out, the 18-year-old is said to be moving into a student house just one kilometer away from her cousin, Countess Eloise, 20. Eloise has only recently moved near the Keizersgracht and will see her relatives here more often in the future.

As Dutch media reports, friends of her parents are said to have offered the house from the 17th century to Amalia. Before that, a son of the couple lived with some friends in the spacious property with five floors and a basement. The house should have a large and comfortable living room, a kitchen and three bathrooms, and Amalia and her friends will also have a balcony and a roof terrace. The last security measures are currently to be taken so that the heir to the throne can soon move into her new home.

Anyone who lives with Amalia must be discreet

It has not yet been leaked which friends Princess Amalia will move in with. Royal experts suspect, however, that it is friends who will also study in Amsterdam. “I heard that Amalia chose which of her friends will live with her. It would also be impossible if they were strangers, they would have to be checked completely,” reveals the nobility expert Sander Paulus to the Dutch TV channel RTL .

King Willem Alexander

After all, discretion is the most important thing when you live with a princess. “If you do that as a roommate, then you’re probably friends with the crown princess for life. After all, that’s very much appreciated,” says Justine Marcella.
