Queen Maxima, who helped host the concert along with her husband, wore a very memorable dress on Wednesday evening.

The royal wore a sheer striped dress by Iris van Herpen and the top section of the dress was totally sheer, exposing some of Maxima’s cleavage.

The dress also featured sheer cut outs at the side of the dress, for a modern touch.

This is not the first time Maxima has worn this dress, she stepped out in it in 2021.

As for jewellery, the Dutch Queen’s necklace is a rather unknown combination of historical pieces and her own collection.

The large, egg-shaped emerald comes from the estate of Wilhelmina of Prussia.

The beautiful stone is hung with small hooks from a diamond river from Maxima’s private collection.

She also carried a green clutch bag for Wednesday’s occasion.

Royal fan @bilbo983 tweeted: “Queen Maxima is stunning.” Meanwhile, @ManjiPa37662350 added: “She has worn the absolute best outfits on this trip!”


Princess Sofia, 37, on the other hand, wore a gorgeous shimmery blue Ida Lanto couture gown.

It featured padded shoulders and large bat-wing sleeves, before floating into a fishtail skirt. 

Royal fan @barber_jeanie tweeted: “A beautiful woman and wow, so elegantly modern. She wears it so well – it doesn’t wear her.”

Sofia rocked one of Meghan Markle’s favourite hairstyles – a messy bun, with sections of hair at the front to frame her gorgeous face.

The Princess carried a navy blue clutch bag and wore sparkly silver heels to complete her dazzling outfit.
