This would have been Meghan's first big tiara event but I think she'll be in Australia then. Pity.

Does that mean that they will leave on the evening of the second day, so that there can be no Guildhall banquet? That's a great pity. But the State Banquet will be very glittering, and with such high profile guests the news coverage will be excellent.

Great to hear, but why so short?

The King will be getting the Garter.

I am surprised to hear the news about this unexpected state visit. Personally, I think a Belgian state visit would have been more urgent (considering that the last one was in the 1960s), but I guess that was a political decision of the British government.

I think the Belgian state visit will be coming soon, hopefully next year?

An unexpected visit. But I am glad that the Kings of Holland can make this state visit. When is the state visit from Belgium to the UK?

Not totally unexpected that the UK will offer a state visit to a major European economy!

Will the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge receive Dutch orders ?

Actually, by GDP size, the Netherlands must be only the fifth largest continental economy after Germany, France, Italy and Spain. However, the British seem to have this ( in my opinion mistaken) perception that they can lure the Dutch to be on their side in the Brexit negotiations.

It’s very likely indeed.

A rather surprising visit. A state visit at this point seems utterly useless, a waste of money & a complete charade. The visit is scheduled 4 days after the October European counsel, which supposedly will see an agreement of the EU and the UK about whatever it is the British want for their future. For now all hard decisions have been postponed.If the meeting has been successful it may be a nice way of emphasizing the future. If not, the phrases will sound even more hollow than usual.

During the king's reign these state visits are usually accompanied by economic missions. I am not sure if that will be the case here as there is a lot of uncertainty about our future relations. The only thing we know is that they will be more distant than they are now.

Anyway, it is a nice surprise to see a visit during this reign. A pity the duke and duchess of Sussex will not be around but there will be more than enough jewels to look forward to. The Stuart diamond will perhaps finally see the light of day again.

The Dutch orders are a mess, so it is difficult to predict what orders the duke and duchess of Cambridge will be receiving. The Duchess of Cornwall did not wear a Dutch order during the inauguration either, but I am sure she will receive one now. Neither the king nor the queen have any British orders.
