Queen Maxima of the Netherlands looked as elegant as ever to visit a Dutch dance theatre earlier this month, wearing a burgundy leather pencil skirt paired with a smart red blouse. The royal finished off the ensemble with a pair of pointed maroon stilettos and even a matching red face mask!

The mother of three visited the dance theatre to see how they were coping amid the COVID-19 pandemic, whilst they prepared for their upcoming production called Mist.

Queen Maxima kept her makeup minimal during the visit, wearing a touch of mascara and a nude lip, whilst letting her blonde hair fall naturally around her face.
