Dutch State Visit to Luxembourg- Day 2

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of The Netherlands are on a 3-day State Visit to Luxembourg to strengthen political, economic, and diplomatic ties, from May 23rd to 25th. The Dutch Royal Family have close ties to the Grand Ducal Family of Luxembourg, especially since the Grand Duchy used to be part of the Kingdom of The Netherlands until 1890.

The second day of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima’s State Visit started at Belval, which has been transformed from an industrial area into a modern urban district in which science, living, working and culture are united. The Royal Couple toured the historic industrial buildings on the Campus and saw the ‘Luxembourg Learning Center‘, before speaking with Dutch and Luxembourg students.

Afterwards, the King and Queen traveled to Château de Vianden to open a specially assembled exhibition with objects from the Dutch Royal Collections and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg that mark key moments in the combined history, which was followed by a Luncheon hosted by the Prime Minister. In the afternoon, the Royal Couple attended a meeting on sustainable and circular economy in the Chamber of Commerce.

One thought on “Dutch State Visit to Luxembourg- Day 2

  1. The three ladies looked gorgeous that evening! I love their outfits and jewelry choices, especially Queen Maxima’s tutti frutti necklace and emerald earrings. Scrumptious! The Hereditary Grand Duchess’ diamond riviere is not too shabby either! The Grand Duchess Maria Teresa is very generous with her daughter-in-law. I think she’s treating her DIL like she would have wanted to be treated but was not. Bravo!
