Princess Amalia of the Netherlands, as heir apparent to the Dutch throne, is set to receive 111,000 euros at the end of 2021, when she will be 18.

Her yearly allowance, set out by the Constitution, was revealed in the budget from the Royal House that was submitted to the Dutch parliament on Tuesday. It is higher than the 107,000 euro estimate from last year. Of the 111,000 euros she will receive in 2021, 20,000 euros will go to income while the other 91,000 euros will be for operations and personnel expenses.

Amalia, who is known as the Princess of Orange as heir to the throne, will receive close to 1.5 million euros in 2022. This will be divided into personal income and expenses for personnel and operations.

Princess Amalia will be the fourth person in the Royal Family to get state funds. Currently, only King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima and Princess Beatrix receive benefits. The Princess of Orange will celebrate her coming of age on 7 December 2021. She will also take up a seat on the Advisory Division of the Council of State of the Netherlands once she is 18.

Princess Catharina-Amalia was born to then-Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima on 7 December 2003 in The Hague’s HMC Bronovo. She has two younger sisters, Princess Alexia (b. 2005) and Princess Ariane (b. 2007). Amalia became the heir apparent upon her grandmother, Beatrix’s abdication and her father, Willem-Alexander’s ascension on 30 April 2013.
