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.

Here is a list of State Visits to the United Kingdom by fellow European monarchs (and their consorts) during Queen Elizabeth II's reign.

1. Belgium

May 14-17, 1963: King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola


2. Luxembourg

June 13-16, 1972: Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Joséphine Charlotte


3. Sweden

June 28- July 1, 1954: King Gustaf VI Adolf and Queen Louise
July 8-11, 1975: King Carl XVI Gustaf


4. The Netherlands

April 11-15, 1972: Queen Julian and Prince Bernhard
November 16-19, 1982: Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus

5. Norway

October 16-19, 1962: King Olav V
April 12-15, 1988: King Olav V


6. Denmark

April 30-May 3, 1974: Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik
February 16-18, 2000: Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik


7. Spain

April 22-25, 1986: King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofía
July 12-14, 2017: King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia


Based on the dates above, a Belgian state visit in particular is long overdue since there has been only one during the Queen's reign and it was in 1963 (i.e. almost 55 years ago !).

The same can be said about a Norwegian State Visit. It’s been a long time. Several others as well.

There was a Norwegian state visit in 1988, which is not so long ago. Besides, there was also an official visit in the year of the centenary of Norway (2005 ?), which is not listed above, as it was technically not a state visit, but was complete with a white-tie state banquet.

I would place Norway, Denmark and Spain at the bottom of the list of priority for incoming state visits by fellow European monarchs. Belgium, Luxembourg and Sweden should be on the top of the list based on the date of the last state visit to the UK,followed by the Netherlands.

In the case of Belgium, not only was the last state visit almost 55 years ago, but also King Albert II finished his reign without receiving the Order of the Garter (unlike all of his predecessors on the Belgian throne).

Of course, the priorities of the British government are different (currently the top priority being the US state visit ?) and, with the Queen's advanced age, I don't see her hosting more than one state visit per year, if any at all.
