Thanks for the pictures, they are nice and I always enjoy seeing Princess Astrid. She usually seems cheerfull and she has her way with the public. Definately her fathers daughter IMHO.

On another note, what is Wesdiep (what she attended).

The Westdiep is a frigate of the Belgian Navy. The city St. Niklas adopted the Westdiep crew 30 years ago. Now the Westdiep is replaced by a ship called Louise-Marie (named after the first Belgian Queen) and St. Niklas organized an exhibition called “From Westdiep to Louise Marie” to mark 30 years of sponsorship and to celebrate the new ship.

you can of course, they bear those titles as well. But in Belgium it's more apropriate to talk about princes, since that's that ties them to our country.

Well, one thing is that Belgium is actually a reigning monarchy while Austria isn´t . So all the titles we use for the Habsburgs are solely out of courtesey and have no legal meaning at all. Mind you, Astrid can use the courtesey title of Archduchess too, and I see it mentioned from time to time. So she is both, as are her husband and children.
