Dutch Queen Maxima's sister Ines Zorreguieta dies in Argentina

Queen Maxima, of the Dutch Royal Family, has chose to cancel her public appearances in the coming days in light of the awful news that her sister has passed away.

Zorreguieta was a bridesmaid at her sister's wedding to then-Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander in 2002 and was godmother to their youngest of three daughters, 11-year-old Princess Ariane.

Zorreguieta was a psychologist who once worked for an office on social policies at the president's office.

Zorreguieta's body was found in her flat in Buenos Aires, the Argentinian news agency Telam reported. Zorreguieta reportedly suffered from depression and was seeking psychological help. "It is intensely sad and heartbreaking news that can hardly be comprehended for those who stay behind", Prime Minister Mark Rutte said, according to The Guardian.

She said it would be some time before precise losses were confirmed. "I wish I could just find out if I have a house". Some chose to stay in the area, which now has no power, cell reception, landlines or county water, officials said.

Zorreguieta died late on Wednesday, aged 33, a palace spokeswoman announced earlier.

The Dutch royal family did not immediately issue a statement, though Queen Maxima's scheduled state visits to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania next week were canceled.

She is said to have worked as a civil servant in Buenos Aires.

His past caused some controversy in the Netherlands, and prompted a debate in the Dutch parliament ahead of his daughter's marriage to the crown prince.
