Does the state visit start on November 23 or the day after (i.e., the 24th) ?

According to the Swiss President's website, he's already in Belgium today, November 23, and will be received by King Philippe and Queen Mathilde on the second day of his visit:

That's very unusual for a State Visit!

Specially when the gust cokes from a country not far away and does not have a long travel. But the article confirms that there will be a State Banquet.

Maybe its an Official Visit as opposed to a State Visit?

If its a 'State Visit' I don't hold out much hope for a tiara event

Incoming state visits to Belgium are normally white tie with tiara events, even when the guest head of state is a president. There was a recent exception on the Austrian state visit, if I recall it correcty, but that was during Covid, which probably explains it.

Both the article mentioned above and the Agenda on monarchie.be say State Visit.

Yes so it does but still very very unusual protocol for a State Visit to visit the Head of State on the second day.

I think that the reason to the President Cassis being received by the royal couple tomorrow is the following: tonight the Belgian Red Devils are facing Canada at Group F of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar. So far Belgium is winning by 1:0.

I understand Mr Cassis first/home language is Italian, but, as usual for Swiss federal politicians, he must be fluent both in German and French, having previously studied at the German-speaking University of Zurich and the French-speaking University of Lausanne. I assume he and the King would talk in French (no need for English as lingua franca in this case).

Is it known what the president did yesterday if that was the day the visit started? I have not seen anything on the president's social media about him being in Belgium yesterday.
