It will be an opportunity for Queen Mathilde to finally wear some of Queen Fabiola's jewelry (the Spanish gift tiara maybe ?), assuming the Belgian Royal Family still owns it (that is unclear).

It is really amazing that the Belgian RF used to be one of the richest in Europe (unfortunately due to unethical profits from King Leopold II's direct rule over the Belgian Congo) and now ended up being so cash-strapped !

Not really cash strapped. The immense Donation Royale is still the result of Leopold II's wealth. That trust owns a lot of estates and has given in use to the Belgian royal family the following properties: the Château de Laeken (residence of the King), the Serres Royales (royal glasshouses in the park of Laeken), the Château du Belvédère (residence of King Albert II), the villa Clémentine (residence of Prince Laurent), the Château du Stuyvenberg (residence of the late Queen Fabiola) , the villa Schonenberg (residence of Princess Astrid), the Château de Ciergnon (summer residence in the Ardennes), the Château de Fenffe (another summer residence in the Ardennes), the Château de Villers-sur-Lesse (hunting pavillion in the Ardennes).

Yes, these buildings are not privately owned by the Belgian royal family, but as these are assigned for use by the royal family, according to the conditions of Leopold's gift, these beautiful properties are theirs to use anyway. In other royal families they often have sold all private properties, so in a way I like the Belgian situation.

I am afraid it will be a Natan show indeed, because maybe Queen Máxima wants a "Belgian touch" in her garderobe by wearing Natan (from Belgium) and Fabienne Delvigne (from Belgium). Like she wore various outfits from Claes Iversen (Dutch-Danish) when she visited Denmark.

The not-so-abominable text:
State visit by the King and Queen of Belgium. Or perhaps it has been modified afterwards.

I feared the same but I am happy to be proven wrong. Let's hope that more members of the Dutch RF will attend the state dinner in Amsterdam. Constantijn and Laurentien lived in Belgium for a long time so their attendance would be nice.

I also wonder what the King and Queen will visit. The High Tech Campus in Eindhoven? The new ultramodern headquarters of the Loodswezen (Maritime Pilots) in Vlissingen regulating the gigantic traffic to the (Dutch) Westerschelde to and from the (Belgian) Port of Antwerp?

I would love it to see the King and Queen staying at the mediaeval castle at the Crown Estate around Palace Het Loo and have a state banquet in one of those glittering salons (picture) (like Queen Elizabeth II in 1986).

Nice program. Strange that the official farewell ceremony at Heeze Castle is "only" presided by Minister of Infrastructure.

Heeze Castle (picture), close to Eindhoven, is property (and residence of) the Baron and Baroness Samuel van Tuyll van Serooskerken née Jonkvrouw Edmée Röell. Great that the Court uses regional historic residences as a venue for State Visits.
