First Official Visit Announced for Willem-Alexander
Once he succeeds the throne on April 30, the future King Willem-Alexander will pay his first official visit as the Dutch monarch to neighbouring Germany.
Accompanied by his wife, then Queen Máxima, the visit will take place between June 3rd and 6th. It is expected the visit will begin in Berlin, as per custom, to visit the German President. Following this, a program possibly incorporating portions of an economic visit planned prior to the announcement of Queen Beatrix’s abdication will take place.
The last visit to Germany by a Dutch monarch was in April 2011, when Queen Beatrix visited then President Christian Wulff.
