Dutch State Visits: General Discussion, Suggestions, Musings

What do You think, which countries TM will visit in next year ?

I noticed something: in 2006 royal couple visited Australia & New Zealand, and now, ten years later, they visit this country again. Also, in 2006 Beatrix made a state visit to Belgium. Now, ten years later, Philippe and Mathilde visit the Netherlands.

Maybe in 2007 Willem and Maxima will visit Bhutan or Slovenia ?

My dream: official visit to Argentina (and my country Poland, but there is no chance) :)

I would say that a state visit to the UK would have been a priority for the Dutch Foreign Affairs. That it did not happen yet is a great pity, I suspect there was no invitation from Westminister. With the Brexit and the aftermath a state visit in the next 5-10 years is highly unlikely.

The USA seems to prefer smaller scale official visits for smaller countries like the Netherlands. I doubt that there will be a full blown state visit to the USA at any point in this reign.

A state visit to Israel would be nice considering the last (Dutch) survivors of the war are still alive. But again, this is very unlikely due to the political climate.

Was the 2006 visit to Aus and N-Ze an official state visit? It's not on the list on the website of the royal house https://www.koninklijkhuis.nl/onderw...aande-bezoeken

The visits for 2017 have not been announced yet, but i assume that it will be countries that are of trade-importence to the NL..

it wouldn't be a State Visit because they were just the heirs. It was only an Official Visit.

Indeed,as ONLY Heads of State pay State Visits,or official visits if the protocol & program discribe it as such.

2006 was an Official Visit only as you correctly say.

I agree with you on that it would be nice with a state visit to Sweden. If it not happens this year, it would probably be in the years to come.

That would be the reason yes. But I suspect that the Spanish government will have other priorities in Europe. A state visit to larger EU countries seems more logical at this point.

Yes. It the same with Belgium. Because King Philippe came on the throne so short after King Willem-Alexander they also paid not Introductions Visit to Belgium.

I have not read anything about a visit to the Netherlands.

The calendar is quite full until early 2018 ... probably the next trips this year for King Felipe and Queen Letizia are United Kingdom, Morocco, Brazil and Algeria, and Peru at the beginning of 2018.

The Dutch royal couple has made several choices with no coherent logic, so to say: to South Korea, Poland, France, Australia and New Zealand. A royal State Visit to Denmark (while an Introduction Visit was made, but maybe being the King's Godmother was a reason) and a royal State Visit from Belgiump, besides State Visits from Israel, China and Argentina. Germany has not had a State Visit but annual visits to a German Bundesland (Sachsen, Bayern, Niedersachsen, Württemberg, etc.). The fellow Benelux and Nassau-ruled country Luxembourg still has not had a State Visit, while Italy and the Vatican are on the program now.

I think the reason that there where no State Visit to Germany and Luxembourg where that Queen Beatric paid State Visits to both countries not long before her abdication. She was in Germany in 2011 and in Luxembourg in 2012. And the first offical Visit to Germany to Hesse and Baden-Württemberg in 2013 who had been planned before it ws known that Willem-Alexander would be King at the the time of the Visit was changed into an official Visit with first a Stop in Berlin where the where officially greeted by the Bundespräsident.

I guess you are right! But I hope a visit to Sweden is on top of the list as well.
