(CS/mt) The newly crowned King and Queen of Belgium are set to visit Luxembourg on a tour of Europe, although an exact date has not been set.

Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders revealed on Thursday that the first state visits of King Philippe and Queen Mathilde would start in November.

Traditionally, the first of these visits will take the royal couple to Belgium's neighbouring countries, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

Other countries around Europe, including Germany, France and possibly the UK and Italy, would also be on the programme, the minister said.

An exact date has not yet been set, but the visit is expected to take place in November or December.
