Crown Princess Catharina-Amalia recently sparked debate by releasing a book called Amalia, Duty Calls, arguing that the Netherlands’ rules would mean a same-sex royal couple would not be permitted.

Although very little is known about the 17-year-old’s private life, royal marriages require the approval of parliament which means any relationship she wishes to formalise in this way would have to be made public.

In the past, members of the royal house have given up their place in the line of succession so they could marry someone without this consent or because they thought getting it was unlikely.
