The girl, who is fourth in line to the Dutch throne after her father and two sisters, was born just before 10 p.m. (2000 GMT) Tuesday night at the Bronovo Hospital in The Hague, according to a Royal House statement.

A former investment banker, Maxima married Prince Willem-Alexander, the oldest son of Queen Beatrix, in 2002.
