It's anybody's guess as to what regnal name the present Dutch heiress will use: that's why I said, in my original post, that the Netherlands MAY have a queen who reigns in the future as Catherine. That being said, if her father can use two names, then so could she.
As could the present hereditary princess of Norway: to the best of my knowledge, no queen in history has reigned as either Ingrid or Alexandra, much less both. So her case definitely makes for interesting speculation.
But although there has never been any queen REGNANT named Ingrid or Alexandra, there certainly have been queens CONSORT thus named. So her parents did well to give their daughter traditional royal names to choose from.
There are fewer questions over the regnal names of the future queens of Sweden and Belgium: if Victoria and Elisabeth are not chosen, I'll try to stand on my head or perform a somersault ...
Where i doubt if the Princess of Orange will ever reign as Queen Catharina-Amalia (im guessing Queen Amalia seems more likely)
