Earlier Thursday it was announced that Inés Zorreguieta, the younger sister of Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, had died in an apparent suicide.

As a result of Inés Zorreguieta's sudden death, Queen Maxima has canceled her upcoming events. Zorreguieta worked as a civil servant in Buenos Aires and was a guitarist.

It's understood the 33-year-old took her life, a Dutch government spokesperson told local TV news.

The queen and her sister are native Argentinians.

Zorreguieta was a psychologist who worked for an office on social policies at the president's office. It is intensely sad and heartbreaking news that can hardly be comprehended for those who stay behind. Zorreguieta was the godmother to the queen's youngest daughter, Princess Ariane.

Her body was found Wednesday night by her mother María del Carmen Cerruti and a friend of Zorreguieta, said news agency EFE.

Her father Jorge Zorreguieta, Argentina's former agriculture minister, died a year ago. "And I trust that they will get the peace and space for that".

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. She had also worked for the social development ministry in Buenos Aires province and at a United Nations office in Panama.
