Before an outgoing State Visit, The King and Queen are informed about the country being visited.
The King and Queen will be visiting Botswana on 23-26 March. On Thursday 10 March, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs — led by Head of the Protocol Department Caroline Vicini — provided The King and Queen with information ahead of the visit. In connection with these information meetings, the media from the country in question are given an opportunity to interview The King and Queen. Today, four journalists from Botswana's main media outlets interviewed The King and Queen.
