Queen Maxima of the Netherlands stunned today as she recycled a navy floral dress and bold red coat for a visit to the International Theater Amsterdam.  

The Dutch royal, 49, first wore the outfit in 2019 but brought it back out of her wardrobe for the solo engagement today.  

The mother-of-three refreshed the look by teaming it with an oversize rectangular  clutch bag and coordinating heels.

Despite her eye-catching attire, Maxima styled her hair with very loose waves and subtle makeup for a relaxed look. 

She accessorized with silver jewels including the same drop earrings previously worn to compliment the spring colours in her dress.

The royal spoke to the management of International Theater Amsterdam about how they went from 350,000 visitors in 2019 to having programmes cancelled because of the pandemic.

The organisation began steaming performances in October 2020, attracting new audiences including those who had never been to the theatre before. It is expected that the organisation will continue to offer the opportunity to live stream production after the corona crisis. 

During her visit, Queen Maxima attended a rehearsal for new production ‘The Hours’, which is about one day in the lives of three women.

She appeared in good spirits as she later spoke with the director and actors about how creatives have had to adapt to the recent challenges to the industry. 

One actress from the International Theater Amsterdam reflected on her experience of performing without an audience, as technicians voiced the benefits and challenges of live streaming.  

The International Theater Amsterdam was created in 2018 from a merger between the Stadsschouwburg and Toneelgroep Amsterdam. 

Queen Maxima followed guidelines put in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus throughout the day and was seen wearing a simple black face mask.

It has been a busy week of engagements for the royal with a digital working visit to the national Student InzetopSchool platform among plans.
