During the working visit, the royal couple will follow their appearance in Atlanta with trips to Savannah, Albany and New York City.

Upon arriving in Georgia on Monday, Queen Máxima and King Willem-Alexander were welcomed at the state Capitol by the state’s governor, Brian Kemp, with whom they discussed economic cooperation between the Netherlands and Georgia.

They also visited the Martin Luther King Center, where they laid a wreath at the grave of Dr. King and his wife, Mrs. Coretta Scott King.

Mother-of-three Maxima rocked an eye-catching ensemble for the day’s outing, wearing an all-red ensemble, which included a fitted knee-length dress with a cape.

She paired the dress with a pair of suede pumps in the same shade, plus matching accessories including gloves, a clutch and a fascinator.

Her jewelry included her diamond, opal and ruby ​​flower brooch, which was created at the end of the 19th century by the jeweler Eduard Schürmann & Co in Frankfurt, commissioned by Queen Emma.

Maxima’s blonde locks were styled into a classic hairstyle, showing off her earrings that featured a round-shaped center diamond surrounded by smaller stones.

Meanwhile, she kept her makeup simple, opting for a natural matte base, with peach blush, pink lips, and brown smoky eyes.

Her husband was equally dapper, opting for a navy two-piece suit, featuring a single-breasted jacket, white shirt and pale blue tie.

After visiting the King Center, which opened in 1968 and promotes the nonviolent methods and philosophy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the couple went to the adjacent Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Dr. King preached.

There they met with representatives of the church community and attended a youth seminar led by Rev. Bronson Woods.

Among their other engagements on Monday, the King and Queen also took a stroll along the BeltLine accompanied by Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens.

The Atlanta BeltLine is “a network of public parks and multi-use transit and trail infrastructure, built on the site of a 35-kilometer former rail corridor,” according to the Royal Family of the Netherlands’ website.

They received a briefing on the topics of a healthy living climate and affordable housing and discussed opportunities for collaboration with the Netherlands.

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima also visited the Patchwerk recording studios. Hip hop is a major cultural and economic force in Atlanta, and this famous studio has been used by artists such as OutKast, 2Pac, Beyoncé and Madonna, who have recorded albums there.

Their afternoon was equally action-packed, with a guided tour of the NewCold automated cold storage warehouse and a trip to the headquarters of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

There they met with researchers and scientists to discuss health issues related to climate change.

In the evening, Queen Máxima and King Willem-Alexander went to the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, where they were able to visit the exhibition ‘Dutch art in a global era’.

The exhibition features more than 100 paintings, prints, maps and decorative art objects from the 17th century and the first half of the 18th century, by key Dutch artists of the period, including Rembrandt, Jacob van Ruisdael and Frans Hals.
