The Queen wore the colourful outfit, which included a knee-length skirt that flowed in the Amsterdam breeze. 

She paired it with a crew neck ruffled top with balloon sleeves of the exact same colour for the outing. 

The showstopper was a floral fascinator the Dutch Queen wore for the engagement, which included pale pink blooms made of material, standing like a flower crown on top of a cascade of blonde locks. 

Maxima’s hair was styled in luscious waves bouncing on her shoulders as she walked towards the house in a pair of pink swede stiletto heels.

The royal, who loves an accessory, was seen holding a pair of cream leather gloves with a small leather clutch bag of the same colour. 

She kept her jewellery discreet, only wearing a silver and a gold bracelet on each wrist and a pair of stud earrings with Amethyst gems. 

A natural makeup with a pink lip completed the look, with the mother-of-two sporting a healthy dash of bronzer and some mascara and eyeshadow. 

Jeroen Pit House in Amsterdam has been two years in the making, with some aspects of its construction delayed by the covid-19 pandemic. 

The house was meant to open in February, but eventually opened its doors this week, with Maxima doing the honours. 

Built around a communal kitchen and living-space the aim of the house is to make the transition from hospital to home easier for the children and their families. 

On top of providing accommodation, the house’s staff will also educate parents on how to tackle life at home with chronically ill children.
