The battle took place near Waterloo is what is now Belgium. The Seventh Coalition forces were led by Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington and Field Marshall Gebhard von Blücher of Prussia, and contained forces from the United Kingdom, Prussia, the Netherlands, Hanover, Brunswick and Nassau.
In Belgium, the event was marked at the Lion's Mound on the site of the Battle of Waterloo. Royals in attendance included Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg, King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands and the Duke of Kent.
The construction of the mound was ordered as a memorial to the battles at Waterloo and at Quatre Bras by King William I of the Netherlands and completed in 1826.

While Queen Mathilde selected a vibrant yellow and white print dress with a short jacket.
