It's always a pity when such a journey ends, you quickly get used to the large number of daily pics..:smile:

Princess Mathilda She Looks Very Nice & Beautiful In Vietnam Visit

julliette 03-17-2012 01:28 PM

Thanks iceflower for all your work sharing the pics with us. I agree with you, it's pitty when these trips come to an end.

It's nice to know 15 contracts have been signed. Sometimes it's dificult for the public to understand why these trips/visits are made and how useful they can be for a country. So, to have a number is helpful

Al_bina 03-17-2012 01:44 PM

It is always a great pleasure to see Crown Princely couple visiting countries in order to promote business relationships.
