It's been known for some weeks, but not the exact dates.

Mathilde also mentioned it in an interview for a German children's TV program, when she visited the Frankfurter Buchmesse: Queen Mathilde: Frankfurter Buchmesse 2017

Old Belgian visit in India

"November 1925: Travel of King Albert I and Queen Elisabeth after their silver wedding anniversary. It was a gift from King Albert who knew the Queen's fascination for Indian culture."

Quite amused to see mention of Pranab Mukherjee as the President of India in the press release by the Belgians. Pranab's term as President ended in July!

I would think it simply a matter of planning. These types of visits are planned months in advance. Its highly likely the invitation was extended by the former president. Though it does come off as odd considering they will be hosted by President Kovind.

What a great idea to start the visit with impressing photos in front of this very special monument!

I dont like the ones sitting on the bench, looks awkward to me, particularly for tall people with long legs.

Beautiful photos at the Taj Mahal. Hate they are always compared to Diana. Its been an iconic place for photos long before her, even for royals.

Paola may not have sat on the bench but she certainly posed. Lovely old photo of Fabiola and Baudouin there.

Great pictures of their greeting by the president and at the memorial.

India is such an amazing country. Always enjoy seeing royal tours there and the photos. Getting spoiled this month.
