Re: Garter Day & the King of the Netherlands
And there was a dutch State Vitist to the UK in the 1980's . The last belgian State Visit to the UK was in the 1960's. So it would say it's overdue that there would e a beglian-british State Visit.
My guess is that if she could deicde herself bot King Albert II. and Grand Duke Henri had paidm StateVisits to the UK a long time ago. But it is the british Goverment whon decides who gets invited and it seems they have no Interest for State Visits from this 2 countries.
But that is strange. Why then have State Visits from the Netherlands? With all due respect to our Dutch posters, I can't see that the Netherlands would be more important to the UK than Belgium.
