All good things come to an end, so did the state visit of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands to Luxembourg. After two and a half days in the Grand Duchy, the Dutch Queen and her delegation left the country at 1:25 p.m.
Before she left, Queen Beatrix and her host Grand Duke Henri visited the Université de Luxembourg in Limpertsberg to take part in a discussion titled "Europe after the crisis". Afterwards the Queen met with fellow countrymen at the Cercle Cité, before she was officially seen off. For the inspection of the troops and the farewell, the Grand Duke and the guest from the Netherlands were joined by the birthday girl Maria Teresa and the Hereditary Grand Duke. Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and Grand Duke Henri also accompanied Queen Beatrix to the airport in Findel.
