Her Majesty the Queen's speech at the State Banquet on 10 November 2021 in Berlin on the occasion of a state visit to the Federal Republic of Germany.
 

Dear Federal President, dear Ms. Elke Büdenbender,

It is a pleasure for me to be back on a state visit to the Federal Republic of Germany, and this time in Berlin. This visit had been planned for a long time, but had to be postponed due to the corona pandemic. It is all the more gratifying that it can now take place.

I am also delighted that Crown Prince Frederik is attending this visit. We have both been looking forward to the comprehensive and varied program that has been put together for our days in the Federal Republic of Germany.

Photos have been added from the dinner.  Sorry, I have to say it....the Queen's dress is way too much for the event and given how the other ladies appear to be dressed.  The top is lovely, but the bottom is too much for this dinner IMO.  For a New Year's court...fine.  I just think it is a little OTT for the event.  Maybe if the skirt portion was not as voluminous or if it had no train to it.  Just my opinion.  I do like the dark jewel tone green of the dress.

Is it me or has there been very little video from this trip so far?  No one handing out flowers..unless that's due to covid protocol in Germany.  No interviews either like soundbites.  Is BB at least not there with a reporter?

BT is there. I think they posted a couple of links but I thought they'd have more.

I thought there would be more.  It isn't like when the CPC couple are on a visit either together or individually.

Finally a decent article about the business promotion side of the visit. 50+ Danish companies and some of the big guys like Vestas, Novo Nordisk, Novozymes.

These things tend to be overlooked in the coverage of official visits.

About time.  And these are the things that are important tbh.
