Royal sources are saying that Their Majesties The King and Queen of the Netherlands will be making a state visit to the United Kingdom on 19th-20th July as part of their first tours as King and Queen.
Reports say that Their Majesties are likely to attend Buckingham Palace as part of an official rather than state visit to meet Her Britannic Majesty The Queen.
It is also suggested that Their Majesties may visit Clarence House where they’ll meet with the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.
The Royal News 24 page on Facebook says, “It has been reported that Their Majesties the King and Queen of the Netherlands will visit the United Kingdom on the 19th July for a two day ‘introductory visit’.”
The post stresses the likelihood of an informal visit to the UK and that, ‘there are no details available of the schedule Their Majesties will follow after arriving in Britain’.
Other royal sources also say that the official visit hasn’t been formally ‘okayed’ by Buckingham Palace yet, but is in the works of being formalised.
The King of the Netherlands, King Willem-Alexander, acceded after his mother, Queen Beatrix abdicated the throne at the end of April. King Willem-Alexander is the youngest Monarch in Europe.
King Willem-Alexander will visit the UK with his wife, Queen Maxima, reports say.

It won’t be a state visit for sure, just an introductory visit.
