On Tuesday the royal turned heads in Rome dressed in a pretty blush-pink midi design which she styled with an oversized hat in a co-ordinating shade. The fit and flare silhouette – from Belgian fashion label Natan - is ultra-feminine and the lace overlay adds interest to the look. She accessorised further with a pair of pale pink suede courts and plenty of gold jewellery.

Queen Maxima is known for her superb sense of style, and she didn’t disappoint last month when she paid a state visit to a farm in Dat Lat in Vietnam. She chose a sunshine-yellow trouser suit and looked great despite the soaring temperatures. A pair of oversized aviator sunglasses, a metallic basket bag and an assortment of gold bangles completed her stylish ensemble.
