The dress sleeves featured a delicate stripe pattern which she coordinated with a matching head piece and sapphire blue earrings.

Completing the ensemble, Maxima opted for a tan weave clutch and suede heels, injecting a further touch of glamour with dramatic eyeshadow.

Next on Maxima’s busy agenda was a visit to Bejing’s temple restaurant, where the Dutch Queen spoke with Dutch Chinese entrepreneurs before posing for a group shot outside the picturesque building. 

She removed her orange and blue cape to reveal the striped frock underneath.  

An international financier by training, Máxima was born in Argentina and married into the Dutch royal family in 2002, three years after meeting her husband-to-be in Seville, Spain.

The King and Queen are parents to three daughters; Catharina-Amalia, 14, Alexia, 12, and Ariane, 10. 

Despite reportedly having no inkling that Willem-Alexander was heir to the throne when the pair first met, she eventually became Queen consort when her husband ascended to the throne.

Willem-Alexander became king after his mother, Beatrix, abdicated in April 2013 after 33 years as reigning monarch.
