CAIRO, Dec. 5 (SEE) – Belgian King Philippe and his wife Queen Mathilde left on Saturday Cairo after they had finished their first three-day tourist visit in Egypt.
Accompanying with their four children, the Belgian royal family visited Luxor for three days as they toured some archaeological sites like the Valley of Kings and Queens, Nefertari tomb, and Habu Temples, remembering the visit of late Queen Elisabeth of Habu in 1930.
The Belgian royals were keen on engaging with the people in the streets and walking on the city’s Kornich. They surprised the accompanying security team with their outings in places which weren’t scheduled in their timeline.
Before leaving Egypt today, the Belgian royal family visited Giza Pyramids Plateau, as veteran archaeologist Zahi Hawass briefed them on a detailed explanation to the pyarmids’ history.
King Philippe said that he had a high admiration for visiting Egypt.
