Luxembourg State Visits: General Discussion and Suggestions & Musings

I think we could have a discussion on the Visits of the State of Luxembourg and what visits do we want to see in the future?

In this topic you can also post news about possible state visits.

I do not think there have been any state visits yet for this year. Does anyone know anything?

At the end of last year Grand Duke Henri, accompanied by Princess Alexandra, visited Japan.
This year there was a state visit to France.
In the coming months it is not known if there will be any more visits.

Blog Real mentioned previous visits to France and Japan, I thought we might include Netherlands in that list as well

What i have wondered when the Henri and Maria Teresa came to the Throne they soon made State Visitis to the other european monarchies except for the UK. But so far only Spain and Netherlands where invited to a State Visit to Luxembourg and the Netherlands two times in 5 years. Would be time to also invite the other fellow monarchs

A state visit from Luxembourg to the UK would be wonderful news. Have the Grand Dukes of Luxembourg already made state visits to all the other monarchies in Europe?

Lovely as it may be for royal watchers, Luxembourg is, IMO, just not strategically important enough, from a UK perspective, to offer a state visit. Perhaps they can be included in any celebrations in 2022 for HM's 70 years on the throne!

Yes the made State Visits to the european monarchies in the first 10 years after their accession. I think the last monarchy was they visited was Norway. But only Spain and netherlands where invtied to a State visits to Luxembourg. But i heard there will be a State Visit from Belgium next year.

If there is any chance of Lux having a State Visit to UK it will be in these Brexit times. A lot of companies are based in Luxembourg as a gateway to Europe so it would be in the UK's interest to have good relations with Lux.

If a state visit from Belgium to Luxembourg takes place it is very likely that a state visit of the Spanish kings to Luxembourg will also take place.

But King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia have already made a State Visit to Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa. The last belgian State Visit to luxembourg was over 20 years ago.
