The Dutch king and queen visit the UK today. King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima have paid a visit to Queen Elizabeth II where they were received at Windsor Castle. Reports say that there are no official meetings with politicians on the agenda.
Today’s visit is part of a series of introductory visits, most of which have been only to the Netherlands’ neighboring countries thus far. Since the Dutch investiture, Willem-Alexander and Maxima have visited Luxembourg, Germany, and Denmark.
To be honest, it has been difficult to find much information on the visit. I suppose this shouldn’t come as a surprise due to the impending royal birth of Elizabeth’s next-in-line! It is on everyone’s mind at the minute. I don’t know how the British royals dominate the world’s media SO much, but they do. Who said the empire died out?
