Maybe because it's such a big country, and there is a double purpose: both academic and economic?

Albert and Paola look terrific!

Albert looks like he has recovered well from his various recent illnesses -

According to royalblog.nl Queen Paola 'stole the show' in India. She usually prefers to stay a bit in the background but during this visit she was in the center of attention and visibly enjoyed herself. After she left the building were she met sister Jeanne Devos, there were a lot of Indian photographers outside and HM actually did not walk immidiately to her car, as was planned, but she walked to the street-gate to give the press the opportunity to make some pictures, as they weren't allowed inside.

Article in Dutch here.

And the site about sister Jeanne Devos and her causes: JEANNE DEVOS (available in Dutch only)

According to Het Laatste Nieuws Queen Paola asked Jeanne Devos if it was possible to visit the homeless in Mumbai (Bombay), while incognito. Apparently the incognito visit took place on Friday.

This official visit is really very long.

My computer is bad I just can't see many pics.
I like colors of Paola outfits. In picture, post # 23, Paola seems to have socks, I don't think she wore socks with her outfit, did she bring ones.

BTW it is really nice to watch this royal couple during visit, they seem so supporting and attentive to each other.
