I'm not in favor of showing anyone shopping...What's the matter of seeing people purchasing things? This is the typical "showing off" of our commercial times. And I also think that Royals must not be showed shopping. This is a "parvenu" thing. Of course, they have all the rights of buying what they want..But what's up with showing in doing it in photographies? I hope that some day, paparazzies wouldn't show Royals in the W.C....

None around to carry things ?

I see that many "Royals" carry their belongings themselves ! No single servant around to help with the load ??? Times have changed...

So what's the point of being a princess or a queen if you have to carry it all by yourself in a plastic bag !

Philippe and Mathilde are now the King and Queen of the Belgians.
This photograph shows Philippe when he was still Prince Philippe.
I like this photograph because it expresses a gentleman's concern for his wife's interest. It is expressing kindness. Philippe is a Prince, a Gentleman, and a King.

She even shops with casual but elegant clothes!
"Yet, walking free upon her own estate
Still,in her solitude, she is the Queen".

Queen Mary, spouse of King George V of England, attended all industrial fairs and home-furnishing expositions. Photographs were taken when she made a selection for Buckingham Palace such as an electric ice box.
