The queen and her sister are native Argentinians. She said in an email that no further details were available.

Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant reported that Queen Maxima was shocked and devastated by the news of her sister's death.

She was a civil servant who had been working for the Argentinian government since 2016, in an office that oversees social policies. The government said state visits to Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania will go ahead as scheduled, but King Willem-Alexander will not be joined by Maxima.

The lifeless body of Ines Zorreguieta, 33, was found at around 0300 GMT on Thursday at her apartment in the western Almagro district of the Argentinian capital, the Spanish-speaking daily Clarin reported. Zorreguieta was the godmother to the queen's youngest daughter, Princess Ariane. She had also worked for the social development ministry in Buenos Aires province and at a United Nations office in Panama. (AAP) The 33-year-old was found in her apartment.

Aside from her royal sister, Zorreguieta has two brothers, Martin and Juan, and three half-siblings.

Inés and Maxima's father, Jorge Zorreguieta, died previous year at the age of 89. Reports of her receiving medical treatment for problems with her diet and depression began circulating when she returned to the country.
