Tributes were paid to the "very lovely and talented" Zorreguieta on a video her brother Martin posted of her singing and playing the guitar previous year.

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

The queen and her sister are native Argentinians.

Queen Maxima has been left "shocked and devastated" following the death of her 33-year-old sister Ines Zorreguieta, who was found dead at her apartment in Argentina on Wednesday night.

Police said she died of an apparent suicide, state news agency Telam reported. A Dutch government spokesperson told Dutch NOS TV that her death appeared to be suicide. She was suffering from depression, the BBC reported.

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.

"With our hearts and our thoughts we are with the queen and her family".

Zorreguieta was a psychologist who worked on social policies at the office of Argentina's president, Mauricio Macri. "I wish them all the strength necessary to carry this frightful loss together and I trust that they will get the peace and space for that". She has since canceled her forthcoming engagements including a state visit to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania next week.

She, her husband and their three children last flew to Argentina in 2017 for the funeral of her and Ms Zorreguieta's father, who died from cancer at 89.

Queen Maxima of the Netherlands.
