Allow us to introduce the British royal family's counterparts in the Netherlands: the Dutch royal family.

This lesser-known but equally fabulous royal family is led by King Willem-Alexander, who has been monarch of the Netherlands since 2013, after his mother Queen Beatrix abdicated. Willem-Alexander married his wife, Queen Máxima, in 2002, and together they have three daughters: Catharina-Amalia, Princess of Orange, Princess Alexia, and Princess Ariane. 14-year-old Catharina-Amalia is currently the heir apparent to the throne, followed by her two younger sisters.

Now that you have the basics down, take a look at the Dutch royal family's very glamorous official portraits. The photos were shot at the Royal Palace in Amsterdam, and were released in honor of King Willem-Alexander's five years on the throne:

The new portraits are a modern departure from the royal family's typical family photo shoot. In February, they shared a sweet casual snap on Instagram while in Austria:

Last summer, the royals posed for another family photoshoot at a park in Warmond, which is in the western Netherlands:

Glam or casual, this adorable royal family is always camera ready.
