The dress code for the state dinner is "dark business suit" and "cocktail dress". Very disappointing !


It is a packed program though for the King and Queen.

King Philippe visit the international headquarters of South Korea's national sport taekwondo and make a practice too :

“Young people also practice this sport in Belgium. One of them is my own son (Prince Gabriel). He is now very jealous of me."
