British State Visit to Nepal, 1986

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh were hosted by King Birendra and Queen Aishwarya on their 4-day State Visit to Nepal, which started on this day in 1986. This was their second State Visit to Nepal, after their first in 1961 (which we will cover later this month), coming 15 years before the tragic Nepalese Royal Assassination.
