I don't think there will be a state dinner. It is just an official visit, not a state visit. They can shake Obama's hand for a few seconds and maybe have a tea if they are lucky, but that is probably it.

It is not a State Visit, it is a short official visit with an economic and trade delegation in the royal slipstream. So no protocollary tralala and no state banquets.

It appears that they will be visiting Chicago as well as Washington D.C. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll get a chance to see them at some point while they're here.

The royal couple is scheduled to be in Canada for a full state visit the week before that, are they not ? As I understand it, both visits are actually related to the celebration of the liberation of the Netherlands by the allied forces (mostly Anglo-Canadian) near the end of World War II.

Correct.

The programs of both visits are to be found in this thread.

Oh, thank you, Polyesco, for the pictures of their arrival!

I'm started to get excited about the visit. I hope to see them tomorrow when they lay wreaths at our National Memorial, as it's close to my office. I'll just have to find a way to sneak out of the office for a little bit!

The local press seems to be getting excited about the visit too. Here are some articles from the media in the towns they will be visiting:

I didn't realize that they are beginning their visit in Newfoundland. Great news, as Newfoundlanders don't often get to see non-British royals!

Supposedly they will be spending the night there and then flying on to Ottawa in the morning. Should give them a good chance to experience some good old Newfoundland hospitality! (They're among the friendliest people in Canada)

Today's state visit to Canada begins. Tuesday afternoon (local time) came King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima already in St. John's - the capital of Newfoundland and Labrador.
