Just before the arriving of the royal couple to the Elysee palace, we learned a very sad news, there was this morning a crash of a plane A 320, departure from Barcelona to Düsseldorf, no surviving people, we don't know if there were spanish people , or french people or ferman people. We saw in direct president Holland speaking with king Felipe a long moment.

The absolute right thing to do.
45 Spanish surnames confirmed on the flight

This is not a day for a State visit. Sad.

According to the Elysee Palace , the visit has been postponed .
The royal couple will stay in Paris for the day, the King will meet the Prime Minister and visit the crisis center dedicated to the crash this afternoon.

Both Hollande and the King have said they expect to complete the State Visit at a most propitious time.
