Queen makes state visit to Qatar

Queen Beatrix and the rest of the royal entourage will move on from Oman to Qatar on Wednesday for a formal state visit – the first by a Dutch monarch to a Gulf state.

The queen will be joined by economic affairs minister Maxime Verhagen and industry federation chief Bernard Wientjes on Wednesday afternoon for a visit to Dutch business interests.
The queen will also visit a modern museum of Islamic art and visit a bazaar before attending a family dinner with the emir, the Volkskrant says.
