She’s known for her quirky style – but today, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands opted for a more laid-back look as she stepped out in Senegal.
For the final leg of her trip to West Africa, the Argentine-born royal, 51, opted for a sweeping skirt with a bold brown and white pattern.
She teamed it with a loose-fitting brown top and matching peep-toe sandals – completing her look with an oversized belt and drop earrings. 
Her look was the epitome of laid-back chic, with the royal finishing her ensemble with a bag made in the same pattern of her skirt.
Maxima is an international financier by training and is visiting the country in the capacity of UN Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development (UNSGSA).

The royal looked energised, with her blonde hair loose and swept back. She kept her make up neutral, opting for a light bronzer and pale pink lips.
During her visit today, Maxima met with farmers to hear about how pioneering schemes are helping them save and plan for the future. 
She also met with local entrepreneurs in the country’s capital Dakar, to hear about the programmes used as an entry point into digital financial services for individuals and businesses.
The trip is the first in-person ‘country visit’ Queen Maxima is taking in her capacity as the UNSGSA since before the pandemic.

The West Africa region represents a priority area of focus for the UNSGSA’s efforts to bolster financial and digital inclusion, along with financial health, and follows on from virtual visits with both Ivory Coast and Senegal in 2021. 
The UNSGSA aims to support a range of inclusive finance priorities in close collaboration with key leaders and stakeholders in each country, as well as meet with local customers who use and benefit from financial services and products.
Both countries have opportunities to be at the forefront of financial inclusion in West Africa, with growth being driven by digital payments.
As a result, both have potential to be leaders in the region.

It came as the royal’s eldest daughter announced she has enrolled for a degree at Amsterdam University – and will live with normal students in a houseshare. 
Heir to the throne Princess Amalia, 18, has revealed she will be studying for a £3,750 degree in Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics at University of Amsterdam from September.
During her studies, the Princess will be living in a rented houseshare with her fellow students.
A post on the royal court’s Instagram account stated that her time at university is considered ‘private.’
The statement from the court read: ‘The Princess of Orange will start in September with the bachelor’s degree in Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics (PPLE) at the University of Amsterdam.’
The announcement went on to reveal the Princess applied for the degree and went through the same testing and application process as any other student.
