Queen Maxima of The Netherlands visits Senegal on final leg of West Africa trip

She is known for her quirky style, but today Queen Maxima of the Netherlands opted for a more relaxed look when she went to Senegal.

For the final leg of her trip to West Africa, the Argentina-born royal, 51, opted for a wide skirt in a bold brown and white pattern.

She teamed it up with a loose fitting brown top and matching peep-toe sandals – and finished her look with an oversized belt and earrings.

Her look was the epitome of laid-back chic, with the regal finish of her ensemble featuring a bag made in the same pattern as her skirt.

Maxima is an international education funder and visits the country in the capacity of the UN Secretary General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development (UNSGSA).

The West Africa region is a priority focus for UNSGSA’s efforts to strengthen financial and digital inclusion, along with financial health, following virtual visits to both Côte d’Ivoire and Senegal in 2021.

The UNSGSA aims to support a range of inclusive financial priorities working closely with key leaders and stakeholders in each country, and to meet 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 the potential to become leaders in the region.

It came when the eldest daughter of the royal family announced that she has registered for a degree at the University of Amsterdam – and is going to live with normal students in a shared house.

Heir to the throne Princess Amalia, 18, has revealed she will be studying politics, psychology, law and economics at the University of Amsterdam for £3,750 from September.

During her studies, the princess moves into a rented house with her fellow students.

A post on the royal court’s Instagram account states that her time in college is considered “private.”

The court statement 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 that the princess had applied for the degree and was going through the same testing and application process as any other student.
