I am looking forward to seeing Crown Princely couple in India. They do an amazing job visiting various countries with economic missions. Given the glorious past and modern developments within the country, India is a great place to visit.

Lovely pics, thanks a lot, stephanievl!

Shortly before their departure Prince Philippe has given an interview
about their economic mission, this is the most interesting part as
it's most private :

Quote:
You have visited India several times. What is your impression of the country?

India is a fabulous country which has managed unity in diversity and combines its very ancient wisdom with a forward looking spirit of entrepreneurship.

I spent much time reading books on Indian history, philosophy and literature, the famous author Rabindranath Tagore, Amartya Sen and others. I have also frequent contacts with Indian friends who keep me informed on the fascinating evolution of the country.

My wife, Princess Mathilde, shares this attraction for India. We spent our honeymoon in India and came back several times afterwards. Princess Mathilde will also take part in the mission with a very interesting and varied programme.
The complete interview can be found here:

** Business-standard: 'Indian growth miracle is attracting a lot of attention' **


And here's an article from hola.com with some pics:
