Queen Máxima of the Netherlands looked typically chic in a knee-length classic tweed dress as she stepped out to celebrate 30 years of parents support group Home-Start operating in the country.
The stylish monarch accessorised her fitted Dolce and Gabbana dress with a brooch made up of black stones, as well as black patent court shoes and a petite leather handbag.
Attending Thursday’s event in Culemborg, which is in the centre of the Netherlands, Queen Máxima, 52, was dressed for the autumn air in a navy broad-brimmed velvet hat and smart leather gloves.
With a radiant complexion and wide smile, the mother-of-three kept her make-up simple and wore no jewellery apart from a pair of refined silver earrings.
As she arrived at the event, the Queen was greeted by two children who welcomed her with a bunch of colourful flowers and a drawing.

The Queen previously wore the dress with her blond hair loose to attend Buzinezz Forum in Utrecht in 2017.
The purpose of Thursday’s visit was to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Home-Start Netherlands, a volunteer organisation which offers different kinds of support to parents with young children.
As a forum to recognise the achievements of Home-Start Netherlands over the past three decades, as well as the organisation’s plans for the future, the event saw parents and volunteers open up about their experiences.
The Queen was due to meet those who have worked with the organisation as volunteers and the parents who have benefitted from Home-Start’s countrywide schemes.
She was also expecting to hear from the group’s coordinators and receive an update about the positive effects of the educational programme.
Yesterday Queen Máxima ditched her usual colourful attire as she hosted ten people atthe Noordeinde Palace in the Hague.
Joined by her husband King Willem-Alexander, Maxima welcomed members of the public who had previously penned letters to either the King or Queen.
During the meeting, an in-depth discussion about the letters took place, with themes ranging from solidarity to social security, housing, and climate.

‘The members of the Royal House receive more than ten thousand letters every year. These are all handled and stored with the intervention of the King’s Office and the Royal Household.
‘By entering into discussions with a number of the letter writers, the Royal Couple wants to listen to people’s concerns and discuss with them further about the possibilities they see to strengthen society.
‘People were chosen who show commitment to a wide variety of themes, such as solidarity, social security, housing and climate.’
