Sister of Dutch queen dies aged 33 in Argentina

The youngest sister of Queen Maxima of Holland has been found dead in her apartment in Argentina's capital.

She was bridesmaid at her sister's wedding to then Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander in 2002 and is godmother to their youngest daughter, 11-year-old Princess Ariane. In 2010, while she attended the University of Belgrano in Buenos Aires, Zorreguieta wrote a thesis centered on suicide in order to receive her psychology degree.

Queen Maxima, 47, a native of Argentina, is "shocked and devastated" by her younger sister's death, according to a statement to Dutch newspaper De Volksrant.

Her body was found in her apartment in Buenos Aires late Wednesday night. It is intensely sad and heartbreaking news that can hardly be comprehended for those who stay behind. I wish them all the strength necessary to carry this terrible loss together.
