Tweeting the royals, November 15th

We got lunch and dinner from Europe's royals this week not to mention a few trips to meet the neighbours. There were also acts of remembrance and celebrations of peace and all of it shared on the official social media channels of the continent's courts. Here's how the royals tweeted the week that was..

Feeling hungry?

Crown Princess Mette-Marit has made no secret of her love of books and reading and this week she held a dinner to promote literacy with hubby Haakon coming along to lend a hand. There were pics of her meeting her guests on the Norwegian Royal Family's Facebook page.

The King and Queen of Spain made an introductory visit to Belgium in the week and after a welcome in the wind they went inside for a spot of lunch. And Felipe, Letizia, Philippe and Mathilde were shown about to tuck in on tweets featured on both the Spanish and Belgian royals' official Twitter accounts.

The Duke of Cambridge attended a dinner held by Skill Force UK in the week with a pretty impressive backdrop - as seen on the Clarence House Instagram account.

Testing times

The Duchess of Cambridge met young athletes who hope to represent their country at the Olympics in years to come on a visit to GSK in Essex in the week. While there, Kate tried an exercise to test her reflexes and Clarence House shared a video on its Instagram page.
King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands has set himself a task - over the next year he will make a series of working visits to find out more about the work of different government ministers. First on the list was social affairs and that led to some striking images on the official Facebook page of the king in some unusual headgear.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden got the chance to test things of a different kind when she visited an exhibition about water and sanitation and saw some very unusual designs for new toilets - photos of the royal reactions were shared on the official Facebook page.

Popping in on the neighbours

King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia made two introductory visits in the week, popping into see the Grand Duke and Duchess of Luxembourg first of all with images shared on the official Twitter account of Casa Real.

Crown Prince Haakon Magnus of Norway spent part of November in Belgrade and in the week the Royal Household shared some images of the trip on the official Facebook page.


Remembrance Day was marked in the week and the Queen led tributes on Remembrance Sunday in London.  The British Monarchy also shared an image of the family at the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on its official Twitter account.

The Swedish Royal Family attended an event remembering 200 years of peace in the country and shared a video on the official You Tube channel.
