The first picture looks somehow photoshopped for me. Has anyone the same impression?

You did well, thank you

Thanks for the updates!

Svetlana Medvedeva attended a gala concert of young musicians, participants in the festival of young classical music performers Rising Stars in the Kremlin, organised under the patronage of Russia’s First Lady.

Queen Paola and Mrs. Medvedeva looked lovely. It would be fair to assume that both ladies enjoyed performances by various musicians.

The Dutch reactions against the Queen in het Nieuwsblad are harsh !
Although she is not a really music lover, it is a honor to be invited by the Russian First Lady. Our belgian wonderful violinist Lorenzo Gatto was on stage. To me she did well!

Honestly? How did you get this impression?
I for my part always thought that Queen Paola was a big admirer of the fine arts in general and, among them, of music -considering e.g. her excellent compilation of background music for the documentary "Paola, Paroles de Reine" (premising she basically selected those interesting pieces on her own, of course)...

Yes indeed she likes fine Modern/contemporary Arts .
What she did in the royal palace is doubtful , the ceiling is fine but putting green scarabs on one of the 3 huge Lusters is strange.
I guided many years the Royal Palace in Summer when it is open for the public, and may say that no-one liked it at all.
The only real music lovers in the RF are TM Queen Elisabeth and Queen Fabiola.

They look so sweet...
I think the Queen should appear more often with their grandchildren, she seems happy and they seem close

Oh yes, I absolutely share your impression ! Those boys are just lovely to watch and they certainly don't rank behind their nonna regarding their expressive faces : http://www.iblbildarkiv.net/fotoweb/...jer11121407txt (IBL picture gallery)
