Dutch State Visit to Oman; January 10-12, 2012
 
:dutchstandard::omanflag:

HM Queen Beatrix,accompanied by TRH The Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima,will pay a State Visit to Oman and the United Arab Emirates from january 8th till the 12th 2012 as was announced by the RVD Government Information Service today.

The last State Visit to Oman was postponed and instead HM and TRH visited HM The Sultan Qaboos privately earlyer this year.

I am thrilled HM and TRH will visit this fascinating country again as well as the Emirates!

They will go to the United Arab Emirates too.

It would be safe to say that Her Majesty Queen Beatrix and Crown Princely couple will enjoy the visit to this hospitable part of the world. I am looking forward to seeing photos.
