King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands waved the rolling pin on the second day of their state visit to Austria. "The royal couple visited the cultural center Brotfabrik, where projects that promote social integration were discussed. They also helped to prepare dishes," says the royal couple's Instagram page about two photos from the visit on Tuesday morning in Vienna's district of Favoriten.
The two tied their aprons on site. And Máxima in particular, who wore a gray lace dress with a matching hat, "cut a fine figure as the royal kitchen fairy and lent a hand in preparing the dishes," as the newspaper "Krone" summarizes.
In addition to the small "flatbreads with oat bran" kneaded and shaped by the queen, there was also a Turkish "Menemen egg dish with onions, tomatoes and peppers" as well as "falafel filled with tomatoes and onions and a tahini sauce with various herbs and Vegetables". Curd yoghurt cream with various berries was served as dessert.
So it went on for the Oranje-Royals
After visiting the cultural center, which has also served lunch for refugees from the war region since the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine, the royal couple continued on to the National Library. There the State Hall was visited.
In the afternoon there is a meeting with the Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer and in the evening a concert by the Dutch Chamber Choir in the Konzerthaus.
At the end of the state visit, the Oranje Royals will travel by train to Graz in Styria on Wednesday.
