Nice pictures of the king and queen at the Brandenburger Gate! But was there no state diner in the evening? I don't seem able to find any pictures.

In his speech the king referred to his grandmother, Queen ELisabeth, née Duches in Bavaria. The royals will visit duke Franz of Bavaria at Schloss Nymphenburg during the visit.

According to the Presidents agenda posted above on one of the links, there was just a lunch and no dinner mentioned which I found weird.

That's Germany, so it's not much surprising



Here are the first pics from day 2!

The Queen loves pearl necklaces for the moment. No pictures of the evening's dinner ?

That's what's been discussed above, there seems to not have been any special
dinner in the evening.

I wonder if more Bavarian royals attended the lunch. I believe that either Duchess Gabriele of Cro˙ or Duchess Sophie of Arenberg (both half sisters of the late duke Albrecht of Bavaria) is the godmother of prince Laurent. So the king and queen must have been close to them at one point.

Absolutely! No words needed -once more, Queen Paola's facial expression communicates it all: she wouldn't have cared even if every resident in Germany had watched her and her husband at that moment, I guess.
Anyway, the royal couple's evening promenade in Berlin was the only occasion depicted by IBL: IBL Bildbyrå - Royaltyfria bilder, historiska bilder, illustrationsbilder med mera.

During their Visit Germany , all the newspaper spoke about Prince Laurent's unalloyed trip to Congo and some Deputies should like again to abolish the amount Princess Laurent and Princess Astrid receive every year
I don't understand why they published this news when TM were abroad ?
