That is a long state visit, 8 days! As Dehandschutter said: the first incoming state visit was also from China. I suppose an economic mission will accompany the visit, which may be one of the reasons that it will last over a week.

Thanks for the photos and update!
As expected, the visit is going well. I am sure the Chinese side prepared an amazing programme for the visit.

This is one heck of an economic mission, more than 100 CEOs of belgian companies are present

To me, this is one of the good reasons to have a monarchy, a couple that promotes their country and opens up business opportunities everywhere, there are other monarchies that are basically useless because they don't do anything besides cutting ribbons and give meaningless speeches.

According to LeSoir, there were like 10 million people watching their visit on TV in Wuhan and about 10 thousand policemen guarding them around in the streets in China.

10 thousand police is a big number, was there a security risk?
Interesting that up to 10million would be watching the visit, was some events live on local tv?
