Princess Maxima is regal in red as she prepares to become Queen
Princess Maxima of the Netherlands cut a glamorous figure as she attended a joint engagement with her husband Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and Queen Beatrix this week.

The royal trio, who are now just weeks shy of Beatrix”s abdication on April 30, were united as they attended a gala held to mark the 125th anniversary of Amsterdam”s Royal Concert Hall.

Maxima will officially become Queen in two weeks, but she already looked the part as she waved to well wishers who lined the streets outside the grand concert Hall.
 

The mum of two secured a sartorial hit thanks to her full length skirt with ruched detail. The chocolate skirt was contrasted with a delicate red top and vertiginous heels in the same shade.

With her husband and mother-in-law by her side, the Argentinean-born royal exuded confidence. She and Willem-Alexander are clearly prepared for their royal promotion.

Earlier this year Queen Beatrix announced she will abdicate in favour of her eldest son on 30 April – the day when Willem-Alexander officially takes over his mother”s title as head of the Dutch monarchy.
 

 
During the inauguration he will be styled as King William IV of Holland. Maxima will become Queen consort.
