Upon their arrival Their Majesties were greeted with loud cheers and applause from roughly 5,000 people according to various sources. As usual local government officials were waiting for their new king and queen to arrive at the provincial palace including the mayor of Arlon, Mr. Magnus Vincent as well as the governor of the province of Arlon, Mr. Bernard Caprasse to name a few.
After a lovely reception, held in their honor at the provincial palace, Their Majesties attended a working luncheon with the local government officials, and then participated in an hour walkabout in the city. Later in the afternoon, King Philippe and Queen Mathilde visited the campus of the Université de Liège in Arlon.
And, that’s it. 🙂
