Background: King Baudouin of the Belgians arrived on May 28th. for a short visit to Holland. He went straight to the Soestdijk Palace, the Dutch Royal residence, to see Queen Juliana.
This is a courtesy call. It is a matter of form that a monarch such as King Baudouin, who as not previously been to Holland to meet Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard, should call on the ruler of a country who intends visiting his home-land.
Queen Juliana and her consort have made plans to tour the Brussels Exhibition later this year, but protocol demands that Baudouin calls on them first, in Holland.
