CAIRO – 5 January 2019: “Egypt is safe; the Belgium Royal family visit to Egypt to spend their annual vacation here is undoubted evidence that Egypt is the best place to visit,” Zahi Hawass, the Egyptian archaeologist, said.
The Egyptologist, and former Minister of State for Antiquities Affairs, stated in as statement after the end of the Belgium Royal Family visit to Egypt, “I accompanied the royal family throughout their visit to the most impressive archaeological sites, such as Aswan, Luxor, and Pyramids, in addition to Wadi El Melouk, the tomb of the King Ramesses VIII, and Thutmose II; the husband of the Pharaoh Hatshepsut and the king Ramesses III.”
Moreover, Hawass accompanied them in a touristic tour to see the tomb of Tutankhamun, Ramesses VI, and Seti I, as well as the western valley where the tomb of Amenhotep III and the King Ay locate.
Furthermore, Hawass denoted a book recounting the life of Noble tombs in the western bank in Luxor to the King Felipe and two books to his children.
He also gave his discovery helmet, which he wore during his most prominent archeological discoveries, to the King as a gift.
Needless to say, Philippe of Belgium and his wife queen Mathilde and their four children visited Egypt three day ago where they visited the Pyramids, Sphinx and the Cellar region in which the King was so keen to descend it to see the timeless treasures of Pharaohs.
