I can't believe that the King and Queen are only paying a State Visit to Eire now ,so a visit is long overdue!

The last visit to Ireland was in 1992, when the King and Queen visited President Mary Robinson, and she visited Sweden for a return visit in 1997.

I thought you could only make 1 State Visit during a reign?

Definitely not! Just remember how many times the british Queen has been to Norway for instance (3 state visits; 1st one to King Haakon, 2nd one to King Olav and 3rd one to Harald and Sonja) or Germany (4 full state visits) or France (also 4). I think she also had more than 1 state visit to the USA during her reign.

The King and Queen of Norway also had 2 full state visits to Germany.
I´m sure the list goes on and on.

Of course not. King Carl Gustaf has made five state visits to Finland and queen Silvia four.

To the same monarch or President at the country you visit is the rule. But even then there are exceptions. For example King Olav V. paid 2 State Visitis to the UK as did Queen Margrethe. And King Carl XVI. Gustaf paid 2 State Visits to Denmark.

Probably there where so many State Visits by the King to Finland because that is how many Presidents Finland has since he became King.

As it is a close neighbour country there are State Vistis between the 2 countries every time there is a new President/King unlike other countries to which there is not so a close connection.
