The Zorreguieta family who have been landed gentry, professionals, politicians, and statesmen for generations.

Inés and Queen Maxima have two brothers as well as three half-sisters, Maria, Dolores and Angeles.
Inés travelled to Holland for her sister’s wedding without her parents in 2002.
Their father was not permitted to attend due to his role as Argentina’s Minister of Agriculture during the National Reorganization Process, the brutal military dictatorship led by General Jorge Rafael Videla that ruled the country from 1976 to 1983.
Inés was also godmother to Queen Maxima’s 11-year-old daughter Princess Ariane.
Queen Maxima became the first Latin American-born queen-consort of Holland when King Willem-Alexander ascended to the throne after his mother’s abdication on April 30, 2013.
The pair met in Seville, Spain, in 1999, but she was unaware he was a prince since he introduced himself only as ‘Alexander.’
They announced their engagement two years later.
The news sparked controversy in Holland as her father’s tenure as a minister was during the early stages of the Dirty War in Argentina – a period of state terrorism that saw up to 30,000 people killed or go missing during a seven-year military regime.
