Queen Maxima of the Netherlands looks glamorous in green during state visit to Norway


Queen Maxima of the Netherlands looked glamorous in green as she and King Willem-Alexander arrived for a three-day state visit to Norway today. 

The mother-of-three, 50, and her husband, 54, were spotted stepping off the plane at Oslo Gardermoen airport as they prepared to undertake a whirlwind state visit to the country at the invitation of King Harald of Norway.

Proving her fashion prowess, Maxima put on a stylish display in a stunning emerald green silk gown and completed her outfit with dangling earrings, beige pointed stiletto heels and a pair of chic gloves.

The Dutch royals could be seen posing alongside Norway’s King Harald and Queen Sonja for an official photograph during a welcoming ceremony at Slottsplassen, in Oslo.

Queen Maxima’s locks were styled in an elegant up-do tucked underneath a dainty beige hat, which perfectly coordinated with her accessories.

The natural beauty, who kept her makeup subtle, opted for a light dusting of blusher and a layering of mascara for the occasion, and was seen sheltering from the rain underneath an umbrella. 

Meanwhile, King Willem-Alexander looked dapper in a smart black suit, crisp white shirt and yellow tie. 

Later, Queen Maxima and her husband attended a wreath laying ceremony at the national monument at Akershus Fortress.

The Dutch royals, who were received by Norway’s Queen Sonja and Crown Princess Mette-Marit, will visit Oslo and Trondheim during their whistle-stop top, which will take place from 9-11 November.

According to the Dutch Royal House, the state visit will affirm ‘the outstanding relations between Norway and the Netherlands. 

The main themes of the visit will be bilateral and international cooperation, climate change, the energy transition and sustainability.’ 

It will mark the second outgoing state visit by King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima in 2021 after they visited Germany in July for a three-day trip that was delayed from last year due to Covid-19.

The royal couple last visited Indonesia from 10-12 March 2020, shortly before the global pandemic closed borders and forced lockdowns. 

It’s been a busy few weeks for the Dutch royals, who returned from their trip to the Middle East last week to visit the Expo 2020 Dubai. 

It is the first state visit to Norway since the pandemic began, though Crown Prince Haakon did undertake a virtual visit to California in April to discuss ways of collaborating on green initiatives and sustainability.
