Queen Maxima of Holland's younger sister, Inés Zorreguieta, has been found dead in her apartment in Buenos Aries, Argentina.
It's understood the 33-year-old took her own life, a dutch government spokesperson revealed.
Zorreguieta's death was confirmed by the Dutch Royal House communications department, who also said the Dutch Queen is 'very shocked and very sad' by the news and has cancelled all upcoming events.
Argentinian-born Maxima had a close relationship with her youngest sister, who was bridesmaid at her wedding to then Crown Prince Willem-Alexander in 2002.
Inés is also the godmother to Princess Ariane, now 11, the third and youngest daughter of the Dutch royals.
