Is it a state visit? I would love to, but it seems more like a official visit rather than a state visit

The recent visit by King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia was no State Visit either. This did not prevent the Dutch hosts to organize a full gala banquet at the Royal Palace in Amsterdam. Het Loo Palace in the east of the Netherlands is a stunning location for a fairytale gala banquet anyway.

I suppose that the former ballroom is the biggest venue for such an event, though I am not sure they can fill it up for this visit:

this is such exciting news! i can't wait for the event to happen.
however, i read in noblesse et royautes that in fact princess charlene is now not attending the visit, possibly due to her pregnancy.
i'm quite disappointed as i would have loved to see maxima and charlene in an event together, as it will be the first time we see them interacting... we already know they are good friends, so this would have been such a fun visit to follow...

fingers crossed charlene will make it!

It will be so disappointing if Princess Charlene is not able to make it. :(
Here's possibly our only chance this year to see her wearing the Ocean tiara to an official engagement...

My French is not that good, so can someone please tell me if the link says that the press release from the palace says that Charlene will not attend or that the links says that after the press release regarding the pregnancy, the princess might not attend?
Thanks

Oh no.... the Princess has indeed cancelled....



My translation:

[...] Following the official announcement of her pregnancy, the Princess had to resolve not to make the trip.

Prince Albert will meet the Prime Minister and the President of the Senate, will attend the signing of trade agreements between the two countries. At Het Loo Palace, the Sovereign Prince and the King of the Netherlands will open an exhibition dedicated to Princess Grace of Monaco. Queen Maxima will join for a formal diner.



The next day, Prince Albert visit the facilities of the Phillips firm that reflect environmental standards.

I think if she was feeling well enough she would attend. But Charlene has wanted this pregnancy and waited so long for it she is likely doing anything and everything to get whatever rest she needs. I don't blame her.

She is wise to take it easy

Good for her, taking it easy at this transitional time in her pregnancy. May be still having morning sickness.

I have little understanding for it. It is no exhausting trip. Just fly with the prince's own jet from Nice to The Hague. Attend the opening of the exhibition, have private time with Queen Máxima while the Prince has his own agenda in The Hague. Later in the evening a diner at Het Loo Palace, a fantastic and dream-like location.

A day later, the Prince can continue his visit to Philips (a Dutch electronics multinational) and then both the Prince and Princess can fly back to Nice. When the baby is due in December, this means the Princess is only in the second month of her pregnancy...

How disappointing. But I guess PC doesn't want to take any chances, and is making this pregnancy her first priority. Fair enough.

I also don't understand this decision. It's not like it's a faraway trip, it would be no more arduous than attending the Grand Prix events she went to last week.

I find it really puzzling, Albert and Charlene have most probably known about the pregnancy before they announced the trip, if she didn't want to go because of the pregnancy, why would they arrange for her to go in the first place!
