Zorreguieta was found dead in her Buenos Aires apartment, Argentine officials said.

Queen Maxima of Holland's youngest sister, Inés Zorreguieta, was found dead in Argentina in an apparent suicide, local media reported.

According to reports, Inés Zorreguieta worked for the civil service in Buenos Aires, and had been suffering from depression.

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




Her father, Jorge Horacio Zorreguieta, who served as agriculture minister during Argentina's brutal military dictatorship, died a year ago in Buenos Aires aged 89.

Maxima, 47, who's originally from Argentina, was quoted in a statement by the royal household as "very shocked and sad".

Zorreguieta was a psychologist who once worked for an office on social policies at the president's office. She was godmother to the royal couple's youngest daughter, Princess Ariane, 11. "I wish them all the strength necessary to carry this disgusting loss together and I trust that they will get the peace and space for that". She canceled her upcoming engagements including a state visit to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

His post caused an uproar in the Netherlands - the Dutch parliament held a Debate before Maxima married the crown prince and her father wasn't allowed to attend their nuptials.
