It is odd to read about Princess Astrid's values. Her family is forever marred by atrocities in Congo.

I suppose we can not hold her responsible what her great-great-great-uncle did. I also do not believe that it was the princess decision not to go. This would by decided by the responsible minister.

Princess Astrid wasn't even born when the Congo became independent from Belgium. It is totally unfair to blame her for what her ancestors did.

Belgian Meat, Chocolate and Beer are promoted. They had a huge Barbecue ! The Princess helped to turn the meat !
But a glass of Belgian Beer is 12 euros in Seoul , too expensive for young people said a Seoul 's Barman .
