Belgian Royals Ring in the New Year with Three Different Receptions
Queen Paola and Crown Princess Mathilde of Belgium were an elegant duo during the first of the New Year’s receptions, on 13 January 2009 at the Royal Palace in Brussels. The two ladies looked very chic in dark colors (photo 1, photo 2, photo 3 – ANP).
Last, but certainly not least, the New Year’s reception for EU officials at the Royal Palace in Brussels on 21 January 2009, with the Queen once again in a dark suit while Mathilde opts for a more striking effect in black and white (photo 1, photo 2 – Belga).
Mathilde seems to favor the coat-dress style, while Queen Paola looks very elegant in traditional suits.Filed under Belgian Royals
