Their third full day in the Middle East led Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie to the Sultanate of Oman. In Mucat, the capital of the country on the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, the grand ducal duo met with Sayyid Fahd bin Mahmoud Al Said, Deputy Prime Minister for the Council of Ministers to talk bilateral ties between the Grand Duchy and Oman.

In addition, the Hereditary Grand Duke and Hereditary Grand Duchess got a taste of the country by visiting several landmarks like the famous Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque including the Islamic Sciences Institute, the library, lecture halls and other utilities. 

They also paid a visit to the Royal Opera House (Rohm), where they were briefed on the role it plays in the cultural field and its facilities and the nature of shows presented during its year-round programme. In addition, they also visited the National Museum where they learned about Oman's history when seeing several halls, namely the Earth and Man Hall, Prehistory Hall and Ancient Ages Hall, Hall of Greatness of Islam, Hall of Oman and the Outside World, Renaissance Hall and intangible Heritage Hall.

Pictures of the visit are scattered all over the internet, for example here, here, here and here. The government website also has a small gallery of pictures of the last few days, probably to be updated with more.
