The Queen donned a belted caramel midi-dress, featuring long lantern sleeves, and an A-line skirt, with knee high leather boots while a suede clutch bag complemented her clothing.
A gold ring on each hand, as well as gold earrings and a watch, matched the buttons on her dress.
The royal opted for her classic understated make-up look, pairing a light, fresh base, with peach blusher, brown eye shadow, and a natural lip. However, she made a statement with her nail polish, opting for a dark red colour.
Her look was finished off a casual hair style with her loose blonde locks tumbling over her shoulders in bouncy waves.
During the visit today, the royal was pictured on stage giving a speech, as well as putting together a giant jigsaw puzzle with MIND Us’ logo on it.

Maxima’s attendance at the event today comes as no surprise: the royal has spoken out on mental health issues on several occasions.
Earlier this year, during ‘Blue Monday’ (the third Monday of January, often considered to be the most depressing day of the year) she took to Twitter to share a positive message.
While her outfit and make-up classic, Maxima opted to make a statement with her nail polish, which was a deep red colour

Revealing that she was taking a long walk, as exercise is good for mental health, she urged other people to engage in a healthy activity too.
And last April, she spoke during an online conference with MIND about the impact of the Covid pandemic on mental health.
Maxima’s appearance at today’s event comes one day she attended the London memorial of Prince Philip, alongside other members of European royalty.
