Since i'm in a big despair with our current French President and his lack of "savoir vivre", let's bring the memories of the most glorious French state visit ever : the de Gaulle visit in 1960 (with an evening balcony appearance not least).

Wonderful videos. The State Visits of the time were beautifully grand. I also liked that several members of the royal family attended the welcoming ceremony and not just two senior royals like these days.

Great , great with flags of the Countries; how popular the Guests were in the past.
Queen Elisabeth and Prince Philip are still alive , only Grand Duke of Luxembourg survived
The Crown Prince of Nepal killed the King and the Queen , family members and himself.
