Crown Princess Mathilde is likely to undertake some engagements with Princess Haya in UAE. I am looking forward to seeing photos and reports about this trip.

Thanks for the update!
I wonder what kind of opera invent it will be. Are European opera singes going to be invited to perform? I am looking forward seeing Crown Princess Mathilde in a gorgeous gown.

Your welcome
I dont know details or what kind of opera will be preformed yet.
There will be a photo or to maybe of Princess Mathilde but that will be it since the Abu Dhabi Sheikhas arent photographed.

Thanks for the updates!
I find it interesting that Prince Philippe was presented the portrait. Traditionally Arab royals would present intricately decorated weapons such as swords or daggers. By the way, the beard makes Crown Prince Philippe look tired.

True but that would only be given by the royals I think and not the chamber of commerece.

Thanks for the clarification!
Well ... a portrait is a somewhat unusual present ... I have to say ...
