Queen Maxima of the Netherlands cut a patriotic figure today as she donned a Dutch orange dress to arrive in Dubai.
The mother of three, 50, and her husband King Willem-Alexander, 54, landed at Abu Dhabi International Airport for a whirlwind two-day visit to the country.
The couple will visit Expo 2020 Dubai tomorrow where they will attend the official opening of the Dutch Pavilion at Al Wasl Plaza.
When the couple landed at the airport, Queen Máxima opted for a brown Zimmerman dress with white polka dots, which she cinched at the waist with a matching fabric belt.

Adding a touch of sophisticated glamour, Queen Maxima opted for a diamond-encrusted bow brooch with a large dangling pearl underneath.
The royal, who loves coordinating her show-stopping outfits, paired the sparkly brooch with a matching pair of large teardrop pearl earrings.
She also wore a sparkly diamond bracelet on her wrist and a simple, sophisticated gold link bracelet on the other, holding a suede brown purse to match her heels.
Her husband, Willem-Alexander, looked equally stylish in a tailored blue suit which he paired with a classic white shirt, matching pocket square and yellow tie.

The pavilion, which aims to ‘unite water, energy and food solutions for a happier and greener planet’, will be supported by 50 Dutch companies that will also be in attendance.
The Dutch Pavilion was created as a circular climate system that offers the possibility to create water from the desert air using solar energy.
The pavilion also shows a step in the right direction for sustainable building.
During the visit, the Dutch royal family will be accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Trade and Development, Tom de Bruijn.

It comes after a busy period for Queen Máxima, who put on a colorful dress last week to visit the museum of modern art in Amsterdam.
The Dutch royal family moved to the Stedelijk Museum, which features modern and contemporary art, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Fonds Kwadraat, an art foundation that funds art projects throughout the Netherlands.
For the occasion, Maxima opted for a creative ensemble of a blue sweater tucked into a midi skirt layered in white, red and yellow, with floral details.
The mother of three looked cheerful as she braved the Amsterdam drizzle and headed for the event, which aims to connect artists with art world professionals and art lovers.
And days earlier, Maxima was still wearing a colorful outfit when she traveled to Rotterdam city hall on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Halt Foundation, a non-profit organization that tackles juvenile delinquency.
The organization puts together short-term interventions to prevent and combat petty crime such as vandalism, shoplifting and more and is responsible for the enforcement of the sentence.
