16 SEPTEMBER 2003
Princess Maxima of the Netherlands was the vision of a radiant mum-to-be on Tuesday as she joined her mother-in-law, Queen Beatrix, at the opening the Parliamentary Year in the Hague.

The 32-year-old royal, who is expecting her first child in January, 2004, opted for an outfit in line with her famed vibrant style as she watched the queen make her traditional annual speech at the Hall of Knights. A bright pink dress and pillbox hat was the ensemble of choice for the royal engagement, her growing bump peeking through the folds of her matching overcoat.

Meanwhile, the queen elected to wear a green patterned gown and feathered hat for the stately occasion, which marks the presentation of the government's 2004 budget.

The Argentine-born princess and her husband, Crown Prince Willem-Alexander, announced in June that they were expecting an heir to the throne. The couple tied the knot in February, 2002, in an Amsterdam wedding attended by more than 2,000 illustrious guests.
