Queen Maxima of the Netherlands joins King Willem-Alexander for the second day of their German tour

She’s known for her bold fashion choices, and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands didn’t disappoint today as she donned a very quirky headpiece.

The royal mother-of-three, 50, joined her husband King Willem-Alexander on the second day of their tour of Germany to meet the President of the Bundestag (the nation’s parliament).

Putting her best fashion foot forward, Maxima sported an eye-catching floral hat, seemingly inspired by autumn leaves, paired with a matching caramel dress.

Showcasing her slender figure, the patterned frock featured a billowing overlay with almost see-through sleeves.

The royal, who is fond of colour coordinating her spectacular outfits, teamed the flattering garment with tan high heels and an animal print clutch.

Adding even more glamour to her statement outfit, Maxima finished off her ensemble with glittering pearl drop earrings.

Both Maxima and her husband donned blue face coverings, featuring a crown emblem.

Her blonde locks were styled in a trendy up-do tucked underneath her jaunty hat, while the royal’s elegant facial features were enhanced with some very light touches of makeup.

Looking just as smart, King Willem-Alexander, 54, donned a navy suit with a crisp white shirt and golden tie.

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima arrived in Germany yesterday for a three-day visit that was delayed from last year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The royal couple were greeted with a 21-gun salute after landing in wet weather at Berlin’s airport at the beginning of Willem-Alexander’s first state visit to Germany since he became king in 2013. 

This morning, the royal couple met with President of the Bundestag Wolfgang Schäuble in Berlin.

A meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is is preparing to hand over power after almost 16 years in the autumn, is also on the agenda during this week’s visit.

Willem-Alexander and Maxima were last in Germany in 2019, when they visited the state of Brandenburg, which surrounds Berlin.

The king has some German roots – his father, Prince Claus, who was the consort of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, was German-born.
