A whole Delegation of Belgians of high level came with their Majesties.
 
I'm hoping to see the Queen wear at least the Cartier Bandeau. Would love to see the Nine Provinces but I don't think it's possible. :(

If the Queen wanted it it surely would be possible. But then as far as i can remember neither she nor Queen Paola have worn the full nine Provinces tiara at State Visits to or from Republics
 
I am looking forward my King's Speech , I don't know is He is speaking fluently ?
 
The German Presidential Couple was awarded with the Order of Leopold

Queen Paola started to give the Royal Ladies a smaller Sash.
 
How appropriate for them to have been invited/present!
 
Our Belgian newspaper has an interesting article about this State Visit.
When the Airbus A330 of the Belgian delegation arrived in Germany two german aiplanes where flying with surprise behind hers. King Philippe who was himself Pilot , recognised them they were Eurofighters. Everybody was astonished about his knowledge. Good point !
During the diner he spoke about his german ancestors , about the efforts Germany did after their difficult moments and about our economy so depending from Germany and Germany depênding to us. We are its commercial partner n°9 how important for us..

It is not so as astonishing actually. Many people who are not pilots can recognize a Eurofighter Typhoon when they see one because of its characteristic canard delta wing.
 
Not for the people who were inside the Airbus A330 from Belgium !!

Very few news about the important economical point of this State Visit of the King and his Consort. More posts about Queen Mathilde's Fasfion which is not the purpose of a State Visit ! Sad.!!
 
Did the Belgians Monarchs hosted ? What did they play ??
