The workshop focuses on the importance of good access to financial services for people who are forced to leave their homes. 

The Dutch queen appeared in excellent spirits as she arrived at the workshop, beaming as she stepped out of her car.

Maxima has endured a difficult few months, recently flying to Buenos Aires for the funeral of her younger sister, Inés Zorreguieta.

Inés took her own life at the age of 33 following a lengthy battle with depression.

Máxima pulled out of several state visits in the wake of Inés death in June, bravely returning to work two weeks later.

Later that month, during a visit to a hospital in Groningen, she appeared to fight back tears as she gave a short speech.
