Reservations are required for all activities and two people who are not from the same household can sit together at one table in restaurants and cafes. 

A maximum of 30 people are allowed in restaurants, cafes, theatres, concert halls and cinemas, as long as the 1.5-meter social distancing rules can be kept.   

 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.
