Princess Catharina-Amalia will join her parents, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima, in London for King Charles's coronation celebrations, it has been confirmed by the Dutch palace.

While the 19-year-old is not expected to attend the ceremony at Westminster Abbey on 6 May, the Princess of Orange will be among the guests at a Buckingham Palace reception on 5 May, along with her grandmother, Princess Beatrix.

Buckingham Palace is yet to share further details about the palace reception, but it's a huge milestone for Princess Catharina-Amalia, who carried out her first royal tour with her parents earlier this year.

The Princess is currently studying at the University of Amsterdam for a BSc degree in Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics, but was forced to move out of her student accommodation last year, due to security threats.

With the Spanish, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Monaco royals all confirming their attendance at King Charles's coronation, could other future heirs also be invited to the reception?

Among the future kings and queens of Europe are Princess Leonor of Spain, 17, Prince Christian of Denmark, 17, Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway, 19.

Prince Albert of Monaco has already told PEOPLE magazine that his and Princess Charlene's eight-year-old twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, will remain at home while they travel to London.

And it also seems unlikely that Crown Princess Victoria will bring her young children, Princess Estelle, 11, and seven-year-old Prince Oscar, given that her husband, Prince Daniel, will not be attending the coronation with her.

The Prince and Princess of Wales's eldest child, Prince George, has been given a starring role as one of his grandfather's Pages of Honour at the Westminster Abbey ceremony. Take a look at the roles of the royal grandchildren on the day in the clip below...

There is a possibility that the young royal and future king, who turns ten in July, may well make his debut at a Buckingham Palace reception ahead of the big day.
