King Philippe and Queen Mathilde will be accompanied by seven ministers and a business delegation of 37 Belgian companies.
Among other things, the state visit has the objective of strengthening the already strong bonds between Denmark and Belgium. The close connection between the two royal families, which descend from the House of Glücksborg, can be dated back to 1863.
Thus, King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of the Belgians participated in the celebration of HM The Queen’s 75th birthday in 2015, and HM Queen Mathilde is also godmother of HRH Princess Isabella.
The programme for the state visit will focus on, among other things, sustainable development, renewable energy, health, transport logistics and smart-city solutions.
