With her great-Aunt Beatrix's abdication in 2013, her family (aside from her grandmother) does not have succession rights any longer. It is likely Felicia and her siblings lead normal lives.

She is named for:

  • Juliana: her great-grandmother, Queen Juliana
  • Benedicte: not sure, but it means Blessed in Latin...
  • Barbara: Her godmother, Barbara Rudding
Growing up in The Netherlands, she likely speaks Dutch fluently.
