The Duchess of Cornwall visited the crew of HMS Astute in the week - the submarine has just returned from an eight month tour of duty and Camilla helped welcome it home.

And King Philippe of the Belgians visited a stretch of the Albert Canal which is marking its 75th anniversary.  The canal links Antwerp and Liege and was named after the king's great grandfather, Albert I. Photos of Philippe at the canal were shared on the official Belgian Monarchy Twitter feed.
