Queen Maxima of the Netherlands looked happy and confident as she visited the Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy in Abidjan.

The monarch, 50, looked stylish in an olive green dress as she met with Vice-President Tiemoko Meyliet Kone, Prime Minister Achi and First-Lady Dominique Ouattara in the Ivory Coast city.

The Argentine-born royal is an international financier by training and is visiting Abidjan in the capacity of UN Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development (UNSGSA).

The Monarch chose to wear a very attractive olive green lace dress teamed with brown coloured belt and matching court shoes

For today’s visit, where she also attended the Ministry of Trade and Industry and SME promotion, and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, in the city, she chose to wear a very attractive olive green lace dress teamed with brown coloured belt and matching court shoes. 

Her hair was swept back in a subtle and complementary pony-tail and she chose brown wooden drop-down earrings with dark heavy mascara eyes. 

The mother-of-three was photographed sitting with Vice-President Tiemoko Meyliet Kone and happily chatting.

The trip is the first in-person ‘country visit’ Queen Maxima will take in her capacity as the UNSGSA since before the pandemic.

The West Africa region represents a priority area of focus for the UNSGSA’s efforts to bolster financial and digital inclusion, along with financial health, and follows on from virtual visits with both Ivory Coast and Senegal in 2021.

The UNSGSA aims to support a range of inclusive finance priorities in close collaboration with key leaders and stakeholders in each country, as well as meet with 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 potential to be leaders in the region.

This comes after she met with the president of the European Central Bank in Amsterdam last week.

She was joined by her husband King WIllem-Alexander, 55, to meet Dutch central bank president Klaas Knot, and President of the ECB Christine Lagarde and Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

It came as the royal’s eldest daughter announced she has enrolled for a degree at Amsterdam university – and will live with normal students in a houseshare.

Heir to the throne Princess Amalia, 18, has revealed she will be studying for a £3,750 degree in Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics at University of Amsterdam from September.
