Queen Maxima of the Netherlands was showered with pink flowers, both bouquets of lilies and roses during an engagement in Islamabad Thursday. The Dutch royal again covered up in a long skirt and top for the event. The 44-year-old queen looked elegant as she promoted financial access for all during her tour of Pakistan.
The Argentinian-born royal was impeccably dressed in stylish in a burgundy top and pleated skirt on the second day of her tour. Her top featured sleeves till her elbow. She appeared to have paired it with a matching long skirt and a colorful scarf that was presented to her when she landed in Islamabad on Tuesday.
Maxima accessorized with earrings, rings and a delicate bracelet. Her blonde hair was left loose over her shoulder and kept side parted and tucked behind her ears. Kohl lined eyes and a hint of gloss completed her look.
The Dutch royal was presented with two bouquets and needed assistance to receive the flowers. Máxima also appeared to pull a funny face as she took the flowers from a young girl. She participated in round-table discussions and was introduced to the Benazir Income Support Programme.
The programme gives financial support to women through digital bank accounts thereby increasing their independence. She also spoke at a World Bank Group launch event. Maxima arrived in Pakistan on a three day visit Tuesday.
The mother-of-three looked elegant while on her visit to promote financial inclusion. As a representative of a special advocate of the United Nations, the wife of King Willem-Alexander is in Pakistan to promote a program for inclusive finance for development. The program was started in 2008 to financially support the needy families.
Máxima met various women who are eligible for the service, who showed the queen their cards and the process they go through to use them.
