Royal Ascot is one of the biggest events of the year for the British royal family, but for the 2019 installment, there were some very special guests – Argentina-born Maxima of the Netherlands and husband King Willem-Alexander. For Royal Ascot on Tuesday, Queen Maxima, known for her head-turning accessories and bold style, opted for one of her signature looks in dusty rose with a spectacular floral-embellished hat and statement earrings.

On Monday, Queen Letizia represented Spanish designers in style, choosing to wear a $420 printed dress and $260 Peony headband by Cherubina, a label from her home country. Queen Maxima, accompanying her husband King Willem-Alexander, meanwhile, was equally elegant in a blush pink cape dress with a wide belt and a wide-brimmed hat.

The two Queens joined the royals – including the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge – at the historic Order of the Garter ceremony, which was established in the 14th century. The Order is a group that includes just 24 knights at any given time, along with the British monarch and the Prince of Wales, and is celebrated yearly at Windsor Castle.
