Dutch State Visit to Oman; January 10-12, 2012



HM Queen Beatrix,accompanied by TRH The Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima,will pay a State Visit to Oman and the United Arab Emirates from january 8th till the 12th 2012 as was announced by the RVD Government Information Service today.

The last State Visit to Oman was postponed and instead HM and TRH visited HM The Sultan Qaboos privately earlyer this year.

I am thrilled HM and TRH will visit this fascinating country again as well as the Emirates!

It would be safe to say that Her Majesty Queen Beatrix and Crown Princely couple will enjoy the visit to this hospitable part of the world. I am looking forward to seeing photos.

Last time we saw the Princess in this outfit was at Westpoint Military Academy in the US during the NYC400 festivities.

Right now there is the exchange of gifts and decorations at the Al Alam Palace after which the State Banquet will take place at 21.00PM local time (GMT + 4).

The Royal party visited the Museum of Muscat:

And attended a meeting with Dutch and Omani CEO's at the Al Bustan hotel
and the girls at home send mommy and daddy a sms...:
