Belgian State Visit to Denmark: Early 2017

I always get confused about what goes where for royal visits.

Royaltyspeaking ‏@Royal_talk
King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium will pay a State Visit to Denmark during the first half of 2017

Nothing on the official websites yet.

Belgian State Visit to Denmark: March 28-30, 2017

Wim Dehandschutter ‏@WDehandschutter Accepting an invitation from Queen Margrethe II, King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium will pay a State Visit to DENMARK (March 28-30)

From kongehuset.dk

Quote:
His Majesty King Philippe and Her Majesty Queen Mathilde of Belgium come for a state visit to Denmark from 28-30 March 2017.
HM King Philippe assumed the throne on 21 July 2013, and the visit is thus The King and The Queen’s first state visit to Denmark. The King and The Queen will be accompanied by seven ministers as well as a business delegation including 37 Belgian companies.

The upcoming state visit has the objective of strengthening the already strong bonds between Denmark and Belgium. The close ties between the two royal families, which descend from the House of Glücksborg, can be dated back to 1863. Thus, the Belgian royal couple participated in the celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s 75th birthday in 2015, and HM Queen Mathilde is also the godmother of HRH Princess Isabella.

The programme during the state visit has the objective of further strengthening the connection and the common interests between the two countries and will focus, among other things, on business and culture. The official delegation and the 37 companies will focus on the themes of sustainable development, renewable energy, health, transport logistics and smart city solutions. During the stay, HM King Philippe will visit Copenhagen City Hall, the Confederation of Danish Industry, and, together with HM Queen Mathilde, the Cinematheque in Copenhagen.

Belgium, which was formed as an independent nation in 1831, is a federal state which, in addition to the federal level, includes three regions (Flemish, Walloon and Brussels-Capital) and three language communities (Dutch, French and German). Belgium is an important partner for Denmark. In 2015, Belgium made up the 14th-largest export market for Denmark, and it presents considerable potential for Danish companies in the areas of climate and energy, health and logistics as well as IT and digitalization.

Is Oscar II of Sweden their closest common ancestor?

Looking forward to this visit. It will be a nice occasion for godmother Mathilde to see Isabella again.

That's... tricky.

Oscar II of Sweden is both Philippe and Margrethe's great-great-grandfather, but Frederick VIII of Denmark is Philippe's great-great grandfather and Margrethe's great-great grandfather. I would think that would make him a closer common ancestor.

BELGIAN state visit to DENMARK from 28 to 30 March - memories of reciprocal visits: TRH Princess Margrethe and Prince Henrik to Belgium (1969), state visit to Belgium of TM King Frederick IX and Queen Ingrid (1968), state visit to Denmark of TM King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola (1966).

Thank you for these additional pictures. They were the glamorous royals of their day, weren't they? Especially nice to see Baudoin and Fabiola, but I wonder what the story is behind picture #2. The Belgian couple look happy, Frederik and Ingrid, not so much. Probably just a momentary thing - maybe they were tired.

I hope Queen Mathilde wears Fabiola's tiara and aquamarine jewels in picture # 2. They would be perfect for the state visit to Denmark.

Queen Mathilde will wear a Sash.
The 9 Province Tiara will not be worn with the Wolfers Necklace , as the Queen has to wear it as Tiara.

Hi Maria Olivia,


I was suggesting that Queen Mathilde should wear the leaf elements of the Spanish wedding gift tiara with the aquamarine earrings and necklace as Queen Fabiola in the picture # 2 above. It would match the light blue sash of the Order of the Elephant nicely.

CP Mary on the other hand should wear her ruby parure as Queen Ingrid did in the same aforementioned picture, with either the red sash of the Order of the Crown or the purple sash of the Order of Leopold. Wives of crown princes normally get a lower order, but considering that King Willem-Alexander recently gave the Order of the Netherlands Lion to Frederik and Mary, it is not totally out of question that they may also get the Order of Leopold from King Philippe.

Crown Princess Masako got the Order of the Crown last year so i guess it will be the same for Crown Princess Mary. Don't know which one Crown Prince Naruhito has.

To Stefan,
We do not know if Queen Mathilde owns the Spanish jewels and the aquamarines.
We do not know if Queen Fabiola had Queen Astrid Emerald tiara/necklace received when Prince Baudouin was born in 1930 ( last wearer Princess Lilian)

According to Wikipedia, CP Naruhito has the Grand Cordon of the Order of Leopold.

Frederik VIII is Queen Margrethe's and King Albert's great-grandfather, which makes them second cousins, I guess. King Philippe is then Queen Margrethe's second cousin once removed if I am not mistaken. CP Frederik and King Philippe on the other hand are third cousins.

According to Kongehuset, Benedikte also has the Order of the Crown. Belgium seems very much like Sweden, the heirs and monarchs/consorts get the highest order, while everyone else gets the lower order.
