If Amalia would declare that she is incapable to reign, she would have to justify such claim.
Before Parliament if not before a medical board.
The royal job doesn't bring just benefits, it also carries burdeons.
I agree that these days modern princes have university scholarship but, if her father was to disapeer, God forbid, too bad, she is 18, she would have to cope with her destiny and not say "Sorry I am incapable".
When would she decide such incapability would finish ? At 20, 21, 25?
Kings/Queens have duties before their people. Amalia might try to "negotiate" a lighter version of her duties at an early time, but if she doesn't want the "full package", she simply should step aside and let the next in line pass.
OK, different days - Victoria was 18 when she succeeded to the throne. D.Manuel II (not even the Crown-Prince) was also 18 when his father and elder brother were murdered in front of him, and he assumed a job he was not prepared/supposed to occuppy.
Nobody said being King/Queen is easy, although these days is much easier as monarchs have a lighter role than in Victoria or Manuel's days.
Majority brings responsibility.
You are no longer Daddy's little girl, you are legally a full adult resonsable for your acts.
Remains to know if you are up to deal with your destiny or you prefer to be an irresponsible teen-ager enjoying just the priviledges inherent to your birth.
The recent birthday party thrown by Mom and Dad with 100 guests when the NL were in lockdown comes to mind
