Eloise is particularly active on Instagram, where she now has 270,000 followers, but Queen Máxima is not among them. The countess was mentioned in relation to the social media use of the king’s daughters. The question was whether they did not want to be as active as their niece, and whether they had the freedom to do so. “They have a lot of freedom and choose not to,” replied the king.

He said he is proud of the way Amalia, Alexia and Ariane use social media. Máxima did not rule out the possibility that they become more active at a later age, for example for a good cause or a specific subject that they want to draw attention to.
