Without make-up and wearing glasses, compression socks and hair, Máxima will get off the plane in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania on Monday. Completely different from what we’re used to, but again the queen looks in her dark cloak to get through a ringlet.
Máxima will be in Tanzania until Wednesday 19 October in her role as the UN Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development.
During her visit, the Queen will speak with government representatives, international development organisations, financial institutions, fintech organizations and non-profit organizations about what is needed to connect more disadvantaged people to financial services and to participate in an inclusive digital economy. . This mainly concerns people with a low income, women and small (farm) businesses, the Government Information Service reports.
The visit to Sweden ended a week ago with less nice news when Máxima and Willem-Alexander tell the press that their daughter, Crown Princess Amalia, can barely go outside. It is also big news abroad and people react with shock and dismay.
