Thanks for those pictures, iceflower and Marika86!
The mosaic portrait of Queen Paola was a fabulous idea i.m.o. Picture details
-but it's a pity that we didn't see a congenerous portrait of the king as well. At least the visitors' book featured pictures of the two: Picture details

Thanks for the photo Lina RdC, beautiful detail!
I love this couple... :)
I agree with Stephanievl, is sad to see the protests... but is freedom of expression. I think it was smart the fact that there has been no arrests.
And I have to say that the Queen still has a wonderful presence :)

Two belated additions concerning King Albert's and Queen Paola's visit to Maaseik:

By chance, I've also discovered a small photo gallery about Queen Paola's presence at the symposium EUROMET (April 1st, 2011, see posts above):

Although understandable, not the mot clever move, PR wise, at the moment. The Bishoprics in belgium can not cope with the amount of people who want to cease their membership. belgium is caught up in a major controvercy around former bisshop Vangheluwe, who confessed several times on tv that he abused his nephews. And to make matters worse, the man doesn'tr see any problems in it, and the RC church is protecting him still.

Fortunately the PM is also coming, so the king won't be taking the blame alone.

Koning en premier gaan naar Vaticaan - Binnenland - De Morgen

Hopefully the Vatican will distance itself more openly from Vangheluwe soon, as the prime minister expects.

I saw a guests list for the wedding of Prince William and Kate, the king and queen will not be there? I just saw the name of Philip and Mathilde... Anyone know why?
Thanks :)

maria-olivia suggested in another thread that the royal couple has to take care about their health (http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1239086)which seems quite plausible with regard to King Albert but less probable concerning Queen Paola i.m.o.. As far as I know, she never suffered from any serious health problems and appears exquisitely fit for a woman of her age. Of course, I might be somewhat misjudging her condition...
In any case, attending a wedding without one's spouse wouldn't be really romantic, would it?

Yves Leterme has indeed been criticized for his decision to accompany King Albert and Queen Paola to the beatification ceremony of Pope John Paul II on May 1st -mainly by the "centre d'action laique" whose members consider Mr. Leterme's move as completely inappropriate when tied to his official political function as Belgium's Prime Minister. It was also mentioned that the latter only complied with King Albert's request and didn't want to comment on this matter...Yves Leterme accompagnera Albert II à Rome pour la béatification de Jean-Paul II - - RTL Info

Due to our Constitution the Prime Minister has to go with the King to Rome Yves Leterme said this evening on TV.
I am sad about the non-catholic's Reaction !
To Lina RdC whose threads about my Queen are always appropriate, we never saw Queen Paola with the Crown Princes like the Queen of Spain is doing.
Why??

Thanks, Lina RdC!
Yes indeed, I would not like to see the Queen at the wedding alone... but I must confess that for me is not the same thing, seeing the wedding without them present

Good question, maria-olivia! I also feel sorry not to see more often the queen and the princesses together, and with the grandchildren... Why not a visit with the Queen Paola and Elizabeth together? I wonder if there is complicity between them...
