On April 26, 2013, Her Royal Highness Princess Astrid of Belgium met with Cambodia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hor Namhong, in Phnom Penh this afternoon as well as with Queen Monineath Sihanouk, the mother of the late King Norodom Sihanouk. So what did they talk about? No idea. But, I am sure they discussed important world issues and other stuff.
Anyway, the princess completed her three-dayvisit to Cambodia on the occasion of World Malaria Day. And, that’s it. 🙂
