There were a prince and princess present at the state banquet after all: the prince and the princess de Ligne.

The Princes of Ligne bowed/curtsied to the royals. I thought that custom was no longer observed in the Belgian court.

It is optional, never a requirement. The Prince and Princess decided to go the old way. All other Courts follow the same policy: it is optional. A handshake is also perfectly fine.

No this was it. The official visit only lasted 2 days and ended today in the afternoon in Brugges. No contra-presentation from the king and queen of Jordan.
