Belgium's Queen Mathilde and Crown Princess Elisabeth will pay a working visit to Egypt from 14-16 March, the Royal Palace announced on Monday evening.
"The visit is part of the royal family’s historical interest in ancient Egypt and is a tribute to Queen Elisabeth, whose interest and passion are at the forefront of the flowering of Egyptology in Belgium,” the Palace said.
Elisabeth, who died in 1965 at the age of 89, was queen of Belgium - as the wife of King Albert I - from 1909 to 1934.
Queen Mathilde and Princess Elisabeth will visit the tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun, among other places.
They will also attend the opening of an exhibition on Queen Elisabeth and Belgian Egyptology in Cairo and visit archaeological sites where Belgian universities are active.
