On May 29, 2013 Queen Paola gave the diplomas of the Prize Queen Paola for Education 2012-2013 which is annually given to a teacher or a group of teachers to honour their creativity and their devotion. It is a way of awarding them for concrete and original education achievements.

General Governor of Australia looks amazing. I am surprised to learn that Quentin can a female name.

What did the Belgians strike against? I doubt it is related to the royals.

King Albert visited the Vlaams Instituut voor Biotechnologie (VIB) - Flanders Institute for Biotechnology in Gent today, June 12, 2013.

Queen Paola today opened the cress site (Cressonniere - waterkerskwekerij), in Laken. The site closed in 2007 and is now redeveloped with a green walk along the Van Praet avenue with the help of Nos Pilifs education farm for handicapped workers.

Here are more pictures from today's cress site opening:

I greatly endorse the idea of involving handicapped workers in order to rebuild the cress site! Maybe Queen Paola herself assisted them during her free time since she is a very knowledgeable and passionate gardener .
What a contagious laugh/smile she has http://www.sudinfo.be/sites/default/...LSTG5A.2-0.jpg; https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.n...60924462_n.jpg

Thank you so much for this discovery! Mr. Hoet and Queen Paola always look like a nice team -I remember well the scenes from Her Majesty's DVD in 2006...

What news. Good morning America. The King of the Belgians has abdicated!
Any news on when the "troonswisseling" will occur?
What are the reflections on the impact of Princess Beatrix's decision?
Will the Prince of Asturias be king before the end of the year?
What thoughts are coursing through the Prince of Wales' mind?
Will it be a boy or a girl in London soon?
What a year for Royal watchers...
