She's kept busy with her royal duties, but Princess Beatrix has come up with a genius way to ensure her granddaughters are always with her. She was pictured in Amsterdam this week with possibly the most adorable accessory we've ever seen!

Beatrix, 78, attended the Zilveren Anjers Award Ceremony in the Dutch capital on Wednesday and, as she left the Royal Palace, the doorman was seen carrying one of her bags – which was adorned with the faces of Princess Amalia, Princess Alexia and Princess Ariane.

Princess Beatrix ensures her granddaughters are always with her

The three girls are the daughters of Beatrix's son King Willem-Alexander and his wife, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands.

In March this year Alexia, 10, was involved in a skiing accident while on a family holiday in Lech, Austria. She was rushed to hospital and a fracture was discovered on her right thigh, for which she immediately had surgery.

Queen Maxima later branded her middle daughter a "fighter", and said: "She's getting better by the day. Although she finds the fact that she can't walk without crutches or do physical activities frustrating."

Alexia, who is second-in-line to the Dutch throne, was in hospital for a few days, but King Willem-Alexander previously insisted he knew it was only a temporary accident and that she would recover quickly.

No wonder Princess Beatrix doesn't want to take her eyes off of her three precious granddaughters!
