Prince Johan-Friso of the Netherlands and Mabel Wisse Smit baptised their second daughter, Joanna Zaria Nicoline Milou, 7 months, this weekend in Huis ten Boch Palace. Among her godparents were Crown Prince Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, Jaime de Borbón, cousin of the Prince, Ruben Abeling, Nicoline Wisse Smit, Mabel’s sister and Maria Luz Luano, friend of the couple. Here’s a family photo including big sister Luana, 22 months. Click here for other photos.

It was also announced today that Prince Willem-Alexander and Maxima, along with their daughters Amalia and Alexia will pose for the photographers this next weekend to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the couple’s wedding. The Queen will probably be present and the photoshoot is likely to take place in Lech, Austria, where the Dutch Royal Family usually goes in winter as a 45 year tradition. Willem-Alexander and Maxima are expecting their third child in April.
