Add a little mustard like Queen Maxima wearing Claes Iversen
Whilst we wait for our own royal family to once again attend lavish events the Dutch King and Queen are delivering with the Prince’s Day ceremony.
Just like our very own Duchess of Cambridge, Queen Maxima is also prone to re-wearing her most desirable pieces which are often from her favourite designers.
For the event, she turned to Danish designer Claes Iversen and the couture dress she wore back in 2018. It’s been treated so the yellow shade appears more mustard though the glamorous maxi length and tiered ruffles remain.
