Indeed another crises after the Flemish liberal party left the government. And again about Brussels-Halle-Vilvoorde. Read more about it in this thread.

Thanks for the pics, iceflower! I.m.o., it's a pity the laureates did not bring any children with them this year. I am sure the queen would have appreciated it -she always beams being surrounded by children/ juveniles...
Pic 2 displays the price board at close range so that I could see for the first time the beautiful photo of Paola's profile printed top right.

3-day-visit to Congo

You are most welcome, Lina RdC


King Albert and Queen Paola are in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of
the Congo from June 28 to June 30 in order to attend ceremonies
to mark 50 years of independence in Belgium's former central African
colony. It's the first Belgian royal visit in a quarter century.

A quarter century! The people of Congo were probably happy about this royal visit.
King Albert is looking a little frail to me.

The visit was quite controversial actually. Both in Belgium as in Congo. Especially since a Belgian former foreign minister called Leopold II an ambitious visionair last week.

In the Congo the press is surprised that the king will not be holding a speech. But the Belgian government decided thatthe king's presence will be as ' low profile' as possible... even though around 100 journalists travelled along from Europe. The diplomats want to make sure that the fragile relationship between Kinshasa and Brussels won't be hurt further. They have been even more carefull after the murder on human rights activist Floribert Chebeya in June, and after the children of Patrice Lumuba announced last week that they will start a court case against the twelve Belgians who were involved in the murder of the first prime minister of the Congo.

Day 4

It's always nice to see Queen Paola taking photos during her journeys,
it shows that she's really interested and wants to keep some special
memories.

Not a tiara, but jewelry. This is what the Palace admitted, but the embassy of the Congo said the President gave her a watch.

I always liked the whole European monarchy. But after the wedding of Princess Victoria of Sweden, I began to find out more about the Belgian Royal Family, especially about King Albert and Queen Paola.
And WOW , after knowing what they went through during their marriage and the love that they now have and show, I greatly admire this couple!
Q. Paola was gorgeous when she was younger and now, in my opinion, she continues to be. Q. Paola has aged well, his wrinkles are part of her. Are the signal that she laughed, she cried ... she lived!
I admire them both for the constant love and care they showed for each other, even in public! Something that is not seen so clear in other royal couples.
And from what I've read here, I believe that I share this view with most people here! No?!

Thanks to people who have posted pictures here. I will be a constant visit!

well, CAN YOU HELP ME?!


(http://www.theroyalforums.com/attach...bert-paola.jpg)

I've seen some images, that this picture represents, but I do not know where or when it happened. There are videos of this occasion? Some more pictures or articles about it?...

Thanks, in advance!

Hi, fancatt, it's very nice to have another regular visitor (and discussant?) in the Albert & Paola subforum -a warm welcome to you !
Concerning your question about the little attached photo: As far as I know, this picture was taken at a concert in honor of King Albert on the occasion of his 10th reigning anniversary in summer 2003... At least a few lovely moments from this event are integrated in the DVD "Paola, paroles de reine" if I remember it correctly...

Thank you, Lina! :)
I'll try to be a regular visitor and a regular discussant too
About this picture, I did not know where it had happened, thanks for the info.
And you know if there is any video or something about it?
By the way, I tried to find some videos on youtube of princes's marriages but did not find... I would love to see...
