Today in Münster
You can tell King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands like their German fans. Yesterday, during their two-day short visit to Oldenburg and Leer, they did not miss the opportunity to shake hands with the inmates or at least beckon to them. Today, people in North Rhine-Westphalia are experiencing similar things.
Willem-Alexander and Máxima spent the night in Wilkinshege Castle in Münster . There, in the Knights' Hall, a dinner was held at the invitation of the guests, at which Lower Saxony's Minister President Stephan Weil and North Rhine-Westphalia's Minister President Hannelore Kraft were invited. This morning, the royal couple visited the "House of the Netherlands" before moving on to Dortmund (Fraunhofer Institute), Essen (German-Dutch product development office).
In the afternoon in the castle of Moyland in Bedburg, where Willem-Alexander and Máxima will take part in a forum of the German-Dutch business association, the royal couple will return to the royal couple. So many opportunities to watch the king, but sometimes only for a few seconds or minutes, because, as one can imagine, the program is tightly organized. For the majesties, this means going from one point to the other during the swoop.
But since Holland is not out of the world, Willem-Alexander and Máxima will surely soon be honoring us again. Hardly a year as a royal couple in office, they were known before already in Wiesbaden, Frankfurt, Berlin, Rüsselsheim and Stuttgart.
