Here are some pics from the second day of the visit:

Crown Prince Philippe at Riyadh's Chamber of Commerce, October 25,
2009. He was given a portrait of himself, funnily without the beard
he is wearing since a few months :smile:

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!:flowers:
Well ... a portrait is a somewhat unusual present ... I have to say ...
