The mother-of-three was a vision in black as she wore her blonde hair in a slick bun tucked into a pillbox-style hat. Since the 1950s, it's been customary for the female members of the royal family to always wear hats to special occasions.

Pastels and bold prints might be on trend for spring this year, but not every occasion calls for a colourful ensemble. If you're going for understated style this spring, Queen Maxima's chic all-black outfit is the perfect fashionable and flattering go-to.

When she's not attending royal duties, Queen Maxima is known for her visionary bold outfits. Last month the royal was spotted in her most colourful outfit to date, wearing a bright yellow coat draped over a bright green silk blouse.
