Queen Paola and Princess Claire of Belgium visited the “Charles the Bold – Splendour in Burgundy” exhibition at the Groeninge Museum in Bruges today. Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz attended the opening of the exhibition about a month ago, and they must have been very impressed with what they saw, because they convinced two others from their family to pay an official visit.

The exhibition really is unique, as it shows some of the pieces which belong to the so-called Burgunderbeute, which the Swiss army got their hands on after defeating Charles the Bold in the Battle of Grandson in 1476. It is the first time that pieces of this collection are allowed to leave the Swiss territory.

Queen Paola and Princess Claire seem to enjoy doing events like these together, as this is the second time in little over a month that they visit an art exhibition together. On March 12 of this year, they went to the exhibition “From Van Dijck to Bellotto”. The Queen and her daughter-in-law must have a close relationship, to be doing so many things together these days. Although in a way, it puts the emphasis on Prince Laurent’s seemingly empty agenda… The last time he was active in an official function, already dates back to the end of January.
