On July 3rd, 2012 Queen Paola visited the European Biennial of Contemporary Art "Manifesta" in Waterschei, Genk (which is -like the Venice Biennial and "Documenta" in Kassel- one of the most important contemporary art events in Europe):

King Albert met Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo for a signing ceremony on the state reform, implementing changes to the country's constitution, at the Royal Palace in Brussels July 19, 2012.

- The King and the Prime Minister during the signing ceremony
- King Albert and the Prime Minister after the documents were signed

Out of curiosity, could one of our Belgian members tell what those constitutional changes are?

Thank you so much fancatt! the english speaking vid is great :)

The pictures are awesome, my personal favorite is THIS ONE, I just love that such a stunning woman was able to age with such grace and dignity, no plastic surgeries, learning to love herself with wrinkles and all.

Still breathtakingly beautiful and not only for her eyes or mouth but for what's inside of her.

Once more I wholeheartedly endorse your comment, leidi ! It’s magical how Her Majesty, of all things, infinitely reinforces her unique beauty by having the courage to show her unadulterated self in its various aspects, by expressing „what’s inside of her“ (e.g. that she is not a whit vain or supercilious ) and I think that she also accomplishes radiating this attitude wherefore I am consistently impressed, even touched by the approachability of her beauty.
Albeit not from fancatt’s gorgeous discoveries (many thanks from me as well ) this photo is one of my favourites http://img824.imageshack.us/img824/4797/74356914.jpg -only a little scene but very typical for Queen Paola’s personality in general i.m.o. . She just can’t wait to caress the child who still deals with lunch like she doesn’t let quasi anyone or anything preclude her from passionately devoting herself to fellow men and bestowing them so much affection, never eschewing spontaneous or unconventional behaviour.

Thank you Lina and leidi
I completely agree with your opinion about Queen Paola...
I like her a lot too. I even like the way she acts a little shy in public, especially the loving way she acts when she's with the king. A lovely couple who well deserves the love they share, for having the "courage" to get back together, almost 40 years ago.
It is good to know that there are more people who share the same admiration for this great lady

I wonder if King Albert II will attend the Funerals of Princess Raghnild ? Their Mothers were Sisters .
