Princess Alexia was born on 26 June 2005 at HMC Bronovo in The Hague as the second child of Willem-Alexander, then Prince of Orange, and his wife, Maxima. The infant's paternal uncle Prince Friso and maternal uncle Juan Zorreguieta, the then still Duchess of Brabant Queen Mathilde of Belgium, Jonkvrouw Alexandra de Jeszenice, and Jonkheer Frans Ferdinand de Beaufort stood as godparents at baptism by Reverend Deodaat van der Boon on 19 November 2005 in the Dorpskerk in Wassenaar.

Princess Alexia attended the public primary school Bloemcampschool in Wassenaar. She attended secondary school at the Christelijk Gymnasium Sorghvlist in The Hague from 2017 to 2021. Beginning in August 2021, she continued her secondary education at the United World College of the Atlantic in Wales, where her father was also a student. She graduated, having passed the International Baccalaureate, in 2023. Alexia speaks Dutch, English, and Spanish.

Alexia's friend Jan de Beafort, son of her godfather, died in 2022 at age 19.


In February 2016, while on a skiing holiday with her family in Austria, Princess Alexia broke her right femur. She was transported via helicopter to a local hospital and had surgery to repair the injury. After a few days in the hospital she was released and required the use of crutches while she healed. Updates on Princess Alexia's condition were posted on the official website of the Dutch monarchy. The accident occurred in the same area as the avalanche which resulted in eventually fatal injuries to her paternal uncle and godfather, Prince Friso, in February 2012.
