See: Queen Máxima wore during a state visit to Sweden

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima paid a state visit to Sweden last week. As always, Máxima brought a suitcase full of beautiful clothes. She surprised us with new designs, but she also brought out a number of old familiars. Curious which ones they were? We list the clothes from Máxima in Sweden for you!

On Tuesday, Willem-Alexander and Máxima were received at Stockholm airport. This was followed by the welcome ceremony at the Royal Palace and the press releases. In the afternoon, the royal couple spoke with Sweden’s Prime Minister and visited the Vasa Museum.

On the first day of the state visit, Queen Máxima appeared in a completely new outfit. The soft pink dress and hat were designed by the Belgian fashion house Natan, one of Máxima’s favorite clothing brands.

The traditional state banquet was held on Tuesday evening. Máxima pulled out a pink evening dress for the occasion, entertained by Jan Taminiau. We have seen this creation before in 2019, when Willem-Alexander and Máxima paid a state visit to India.

Máxima wore the dress in India (L) and in Sweden (R).

On Wednesday morning, Willem-Alexander and Máxima spoke with CEOs of Dutch and Swedish companies. They also visited the town hall and had lunch with the Stockholm City Council.



In the morning we saw Máxima in a familiar dress. The blue dress, Natan’s, was worn by the Queen for the sixth time. The design is also called the lampshade dress, due to the wide sleeves.

Queen Máxima wore the ‘lampshade dress’ for the first time in 2013 (L) during the bicentennial celebrations. But we also got to see the dress during a state visit to Japan in 2014 (center) and a visit to Germany in 2017 (R).

You may also recognize the mantle from previous occasions. For example, it was worn during the Christmas music gala in 2021 and during the King’s Day celebrations in Maastricht earlier this year.

After lunch, Máxima changed clothes for the afternoon program. During the ride on an electric hydrofoil and a visit to a research laboratory, she wore a dark blue jumpsuit from Costarellos. Máxima already donned the suit last year when she attended the G20 summit in Rome.

In October 2021, Máxima wore the jumpsuit for the first time in Rome. She was in the Italian capital to attend a meeting at the G20 summit.

Wednesday night was marked by the counter performance. On this occasion, Willem-Alexander and Máxima offered the Swedish royal couple a concert. They hereby thanked King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia for their hospitality.

Máxima appeared in a design by Iris van Herpen. The dress was worn for the first time in 2021, when Máxima was present at the filming of the TV show ‘Queen Máxima a life full of music’ on the occasion of her 50th birthday.

On Thursday, Willem-Alexander and Máxima concluded their state visit to the city of Gothenburg. Here they visited the Lindholmen Science Park, took a boat trip through the harbor and looked at Volvo Trucks. At the end of the day, a conversation took place with the Dutch press.

Máxima drove an electric excavator during a visit to the Volvo Trucks Experience Center. Electric cars are produced here for, among other things, distribution and waste collection. The trucks are also suitable for heavy and international transport.

King Máxima wore a new purple suit from Zara on the last day. We also never saw her pink headband, from the brand NamJosh.
