Brave face: Dutch won't let rain ruin State visit
Dutch royals Queen Maxima and King Willem-Alexander insisted they haven't let the "Irish weather" spoil their State visit.
The couple were welcomed into Government Buildings by Leo Varadkar yesterday as their two-day trip to Dublin ended.
Queen Maxima showed her fashion prowess yet again in a stunning burnt orange wide necked blouse and wide rimmed hat with a golden brown sequinned skirt.
King Willem-Alexander told earlier how he and Maxima were "greatly enjoying beautiful Dublin despite the Irish weather".
The king met newly elected Lord Mayor of Dublin Paul McAullife at the Mansion House in the morning where they presented the politician with a bicycle rack figurine, a reminder of the Dutch passion for cycling.
"Your city attracts people from all corners of the world," the king said.
"And that certainly includes the Netherlands."
They will travel to Cork for a one-day visit today.
