Queen Máxima taken ill during state visit to the People’s Republic of China (3)

Her Majesty Queen Máxima will return to the Netherlands this evening from China. Immediately after her arrival, the Queen will be admitted to Bronovo Hospital in The Hague for further tests.

This decision was made in consultation with doctors. The Queen was diagnosed with pyelitis during the state visit to China. The medical treatment she has received so far has provided insufficient relief from symptoms such as fever and back pain.

His Majesty King Willem-Alexander will continue the official state visit programme as planned.
