Queen Maxima of the Netherlands wows in yellow on final day of visit to Ireland

Queen Maxima looked as glamorous as ever as she and her husband King Willem of Netherlands began the final day of their visit to Ireland, despite the rainy weather.

The Dutch royals arrived on Tuesday and have had a jam-packed schedule in Dublin during the first two days of their trip.

Despite the grey weather, Maxima, 48, and King Willem Alexander, 53, the stylish queen brought a touch of sunshine to the day in a bright yellow and camel two- piece as she visited Cobh, Country Cork.

The royal couple were in the south of Ireland to celebrate Cork harbour’s historic ties with The Netherlands. 

It was previously a safe harbour for the Dutch West India Company ships, which stopped off to shelter and re-stock their fleets for voyages between Europe, North America and the West Indies. 

Queen Maxima and King Willem-Alexander climbed aboard a boat to sail from Cork to Cobh on the final day of their visit to Ireland

The royal wowed in a bright yellow satin skirt, with a matching jacket with complimentary bright detailing. 

She paired the outfit with a elegant pink fascinator, nude heels and, in an effort to stay warm despite the weather, a cosy scarf.

They visited Cork this morning, and were snapped sailing on the hour-and-a-half journey from the city to the maritime town. 

As she and her husband set sail to Cobh, Maxima wrapped up in a trendy camel trench coat and donned a pair of huge sunglasses. 

Earlier today, the couple visited Cork during their final day of the three day state visit to Ireland. The couple were welcomed by Councillor John Sheehan, the Lord Mayor of Cork, the Lady Mayoress Aedamar and Chief Executive of Cork City Council Ann Doherty
