The Queen wears the full setting of Queen Maud's pearl tiara. And the Crown Princess wears the amethyst tiara for the first time since the wedding of Princess Madeleine. I hope that better pictures will be published soon.

The above post by kapenot88 contains photos of the state banquet. I am surprised to see President Berzins making a solo engagement.

The First Lady of Latvia, mrs Dace Seisuma, very rarely accompanies the president abroad. She has wanted to continue her own work. She is a doctor and internist, as well as a resident endocrinologist at the Pauls Stradiņš Clinical University Hospital. She takes part at the state visits in Latvia and has several patronages in Latvia, mostly on social projects.
