New book sheds light on life of future queen of Netherlands – Yahoo Entertainment

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — People in the Netherlands can get to know their future queen a little better with the publication Tuesday of an authorized book about Princess Amalia three weeks before her 18th birthday.
The book delves into Amalia's school life, her occasional work at a beach bar, her love of horseback riding and her education plans. The princess recently graduated high school and is taking a gap year before going to a university. She’s not yet sure what she will study but says she is interested in history, economics and law.
Amalia also reveals that she sometimes sees a mental health professional.
“I don’t think it is a taboo. And it’s not a problem to say that in public,” the princess is quoted as saying in the book.
“Everybody talks about healthy eating and sport. And that is also very important,” she says. “But how important is it to maintain your mental health? You can’t have one without the other.”
Claudia de Breij, a popular writer, singer and comedian, wrote the book following a series of meetings over the summer with Amalia, the oldest of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima's three daughters and first in line to the Dutch throne.
Similar books were published about her father and grandmother around their 18th birthdays as a way of introducing them to the public.
“It's very cool,” Amalia said of the book in a brief virtual conversation with De Breij released on Twitter by the Dutch Royal House.
“There are a lot of personal things about me in it,” she said. “It's quite exciting. I think the whole book paints a very beautiful portrait of who I am.”
LONDON (Reuters) -Britain's Queen Elizabeth, whose health has come into focus after the 95-year-old missed a Remembrance Sunday service, was pictured standing and smiling on Wednesday at her first in person public engagement since spending a night in hospital. The monarch stayed in hospital for the first time in years last month for what Buckingham Palace called "preliminary investigations" into an unspecified ailment, and doctors have advised her to cancel most engagements since then. She pulled out of the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Cenotaph war memorial in London on Sunday with a sprained back which a palace source said was unrelated to the condition which has required rest and was an unfortunate coincidence.

But the rules for getaways are still varied and complicated, unvaccinated Britons have extremely limited horizons, and some countries are even tightening restrictions.
