Their 4-day trip included meetings about water management, micro-credit and culture. with various included talks with the Moroccans on water treatment. The royal couple was accompanied by 12 Dutch kids, 6 of whom of Moroccan descent.

Meanwhile, Vlaams Belang is organizing a trip of its own to Morocco, to warn Moroccans of the fate that aways them in Belgium and that life in Belgium is not as rosy as it seems.
