Queen Máxima of the Netherlands is ravishing in red on last night in Denmark

Queen Máxima of the Netherlands marked her last night in Denmark by wearing a show-stopping, gorgeous red gown. The royal was enjoying a cultural evening out with her husband King Willem-Alexander in Copenhagen, alongside members of the Danish royal family.

The Dutch couple had arrived in Denmark on Tuesday to kick off their two-day visit, and after various lunches, a state banquet and a tour of Samso Island, it was time for Máxima and Willem-Alexander to show gratitude to their Danish hosts.

The pair treated Queen Margrethe II, 74, and her husband Prince Henrik, 80, to a modern dance performance organised by ICKamsterdam on Wednesday night.

Máxima, 43, showed off her style credentials, stepping out in show-stopping scarlet dress. The one-shoulder piece was adorned with jewels that glittered as Máxima made her entrance.

Willem-Alexander, 47, proved the perfect accessory for his wife, dressed in a smart navy blue tuxedo.

The couple were greeted by Queen Margrethe, who also opted to wear red, and other Danish royals including first-in-line to the throne Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Princess Mary.

Máxima and Mary, who are close friends, were pictured embracing each other on the red carpet. The Australian beauty and future queen of Denmark looked pretty in a black ruffled gown, while her sister-in-law Princess Marie, who is married to Prince Joachim, looked stylish in a fitted monochrome dress.

Once inside the Black Diamond – an extension of the Royal Danish Library located on Copenhagen's waterfront – the royals took their seats, with Máxima placed between Prince Henrik and Crown Prince Frederik.

The show featured talented young performers from Amsterdam and certainly seemed to entertain their guests of honour, judging by the group's expressions.

Máxima and Willem-Alexander have spent the past three days in Denmark. They were making the visit to "strengthen the already excellent relations between Denmark and the Netherlands," according to the Dutch royal palace's website.

The tour aimed to reinforce the two countries' existing economic and social cooperation, while also focusing on sustainable energy, hence the day trip to Samso – a carbon-neutral island.
