It looks like there was an official dinner at the presidential palace. I'd like to see a full length picture of Charlene's gown which looks African inspired.

Impressive building, constructed mainly of shipping containers. And how great that these are recycled containers!

P Charlene must be proud to see the results of the efforts of her Foundation ( together with the Red Cross) with the completion of this project. I'm sure it will be put to good use.

Charlene's Foundation assists people in a very real way. She has every reason to be proud of seeing the results first hand!

These pictures and videos are all from the Presidency of BF. Hoping the Palace in Monaco will also post some pictures and maybe release a video.

From the pics it looks like the couple had a very enjoyable visit, everyone smiling and having fun.

Thanks to all who posted.

.

I think it's a pity that they weren't accompanied by any international press members/photographers and that no major photo agency covers the visit. Media attention is so important and helpful for countries, areas, people at need and Burkina Faso is one of the poorest countries of the world.

Here are some more photos of the President's facebook page:

I have been thinking exactly the same thing.

Anyway, glad we got to see some pictures - just a shame that some of the bigger sites haven't picked them up.

Thank you Iceflower for the photos and I am agree with you, it is a pity that no agencies of the photos followed this visit which was very important for this country.

By chance, we knew by a reader of royal forum that there would be a visit of the princely couple to the Burkina Faso, it was announced in a newspaper of the Burkina Faso and it was even not noticed that Charlene would be there, we was sure when the official agency of BF said the day itself that P Albert and P Charlene would arrive at OUgadougou .
The team of the palace did not do their job as always, the other teams of the monarchies are announcing very early the official visits of their royal couples or princely couple in a country, the agencies or independant photographs can register at times, the team of the palace of Monaco never do that, one day, we have the announce of the country where there is Albert or Charlene as she was in India .in their country.Charlene was in Honolulu last october for her foundation, we had the photos of the governer of Honolulu and we had more news with Monaco Matin, nothing from the palace.

Perhaps, this times there was no announce from the palace because Burkina Faso is not safe as Mali, there are a lot of Attacks of terroristes between Mali and Burkina Faso and the presidence og BF wanted to have the exclusivity of this visit. P Charlene and the wife of the president visited a maternity and a hospital of children who are ill, we had no photos, perhaps we will have more photos on the official page of FB of the palace.

It's been wonderful seeing Charlene back on a full official visit abroad with her husband. The pictures have been super, a great start to their 2018 schedule.

It was really refreshing to see Prince Albert and Princess Charlene both together on this trip as so often its just solo visits by the Prince.

Hopefully we'll see more joint visits in the future.

The President and the first lady look as though they were great hosts and I've really enjoyed all the pictures. Like other posters I hope this is the start of Charlene resuming official visits again with her husband but I'm not sure that will happen. Her interests seem almost solely African based these days IMO.

Nice pictures. There was also a report on Monaco Info. Unfortunately very little on the opening of the Aquatic Centre. Maybe there will be something more later.
