The royal is an international financier by training, was married to Willem-Alexander in 2002 in Amsterdam.
She was born in Argentina before she married into the Dutch royal family, three years after meeting her husband-to-be in Seville, Spain.
Willem-Alexander became king after his mother, Beatrix, abdicated in April 2013 after 33 years as reigning monarch.
Queen Maxima has reportedly said that she had no inkling Willem-Alexander was heir to the throne when they first met.
