The King and Queen of the Belgians are to be received by Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace on 13th March.

Royal Central ‏@RoyalCentral 28m
They are making an ‘introductory visit’ which will be the first time the Belgian King & Queen have met Queen Elizabeth since acceding.

These were tweets from earlier that were in the family thread.

#didyouknow the last time HM The Queen & Duke of Edinburgh visited #Belgium was in July 2007?

Richard Palmer ‏@RoyalReporter 2m
The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and the Duke of Kent will also join the Queen at that lunch for King Philippe and Queen Mathilde.

I wonder what long time monarchs like Elizabeth think when she meets the second or third monarch or ruling prince who has ascended the throne during her reign. She likely remembers receiving birth announcements for some of the new monarchs.

Also in attendance was TRH The Duke & Duchess of Gloucester and The Duke of Kent. The Queen tried to keep her corgis under control.

I agree. Mathilde looks elegant and beautiful...perfection. And I love the photo with QEII!

In the ITN video, how odd that the Duchess of Gloucester curtsied to Mathilde, but not to Philippe?

Indeed, but I guess she didn´t do it on purpose. Normally the duchess is very self-assured about protocol.
It´s a pity the sound is so quiet - I didn´t understand anything...

That is kind of odd, but she seemed to curtsey to Mathilde as an after thought. Perhaps forgetting who they are?

I love how The Queen goes "Now look we've got Richard and Birgitte and (correction) Edward"

I think the Duchess of Gloucester may have curtsied to The King before greeting him as he was walking over but the video didn't show it.

That doesn't make any sense, seeing as Birgitte was the last to greet Phillipe you're supposed to curtsey/bow upon meeting them else all three would have bowed/curtsied? whilst they were on their way over.

Forgetting who they are? Are you serious?

Yes, I liked the Queen´s informal introduction of the two Dukes and the Duchess, too. But they in their turn seemed to be very formal towards Philippe and Mathilde. Did the Dukes say "Your Majesty" when they shook hands?
There was not much to hear, but what I heard from the D o Gloucester´s voice reminded me a lot of his father Prince Henry.
I was surprised that the Queen didn´t seem to know that the royal couple went to parliament before cause she said to The King "Oh, you went to parliament!"

I caught that too...loved it!

I can't imagine such a longtime seasoned Royal as the DoG wouldn't know who the King and Queen of the Belgians was. She was presumably there, specifically to greet them with HM.
