    From Utrecht the party travelled to Amsterdam by train and were greeted by The Queen and her Consort. They then drove to the Royal Palace in the heart of the city in open coaches, escorted by States Police in ceremonial uniforms.

    The first official action of President Houphouet-Boigny was to lay a wreath on the National War Monument.
