No, I think none's attention is obligatory but it lies at hand that at least the head of state is present, to lead the festivities on the National Day.

That Queen Mathilde and other members of the family attend, or do not attend, is interesting but in essence it is about the King, of course.

Given age and health, King Albert's and Queen Paola's absence will be understandable. Queen Mathilde must attend as she is the spouse. Hopefully Prince Laurent and Princess Astrid will be in attendance.

I think it is right. King Albert has retired... he gave enough of his life for us now he deserves rest.

On public Events :
We see Princess Beatrix with the new Monarchs of the Netherlands
We see King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia with the new Monarchs of Spain.
We will never saw King Albert Ii and Queen Paola with the new Monarachs of Belgium

Good reason , they are on holiday.

Queen Fabiola during 1993 until 2013 (20 years) attend the Mass at the Cathedral and afterwards the Defllé Militaire.

But King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia also don't attend the National Day Events in Spain. And neither do they attend State Banquet's.
And in Luxemborug Grand Duke Jean also doesn't attend the National Day Events since his abdication.

I wish Queen Paola well.

Having said that, despite a new King and a fresh wind through the palace, the website of the Belgian monarchy is one of the poorest ever. There are hardly any updates, the last one was on June 4th !!!!

Actually the site of the Belgian monarchy is the poorest. They should make a new website, more modern.

Not much information given. According to the article, Queen Paola "must have complete rest.....as a result of a medical examination, according to the Royal Palace"

The article continues that, "all planned activities and visits of King Albert and Queen Paola will be canceled. What the 77 -year-old queen has exactly is not known"

The Royal Palace said Their Majesties. So King Albert II remains with the Queen and will not go to Küssnacht on August 29th.

To me they came urgently from Italy where they were since weeks came to Belgium for medical advice. We have to wait and understand for what the complete rest is.

Koningin Paola moet rust nemen van dokters - De Standaard

translated

all publications have the same text, so I assume that it's the official bulletin and no other information is available..

At Kussnacht yesterday 29th August (80 birthday of the car crash (1935 ) we saw King Philippe and his Sun Prince Gabriel.

It should have been so great to see 3 Generations to gether :
Her Son King Albert II, her Grandson King Philippe and Great Grandson Prince Gabriel.

Queen Paola also cancelled her attendance of the Venice Biennale. Besides the biennale she had to cancel the opening of a museum in Grosio (close to Milan). She was supposed to open a museum in the former villa of the family Visconti Venosta. Paola's godmather, marchioness Mossi Pallavicini was a member of that family.

NB I can not find a Visconti in the Pallavicini genealogy:
Pallavicini

They actually do not belong to the same family.
Queen Paola's godmother was Margherita Pallavicino Mossi (not Pallavicini), born in 1898 and dead in 1982, who was the daughter of Marquess Giuseppe Carlo Pallavicino Mossi and of his wife, née Irene Avogadro (of the Counts of Valdengo and Lords of Collobiano). Margherita's paternal grandmother was born Princess Marguerite de Faucigny-Lucinge, whose mother was Charlotte, Countess d'Issodun, illegitimate daughter of Charles Ferdinand, Duke of Berry (son of Charles X of France) by Amy Brown.
Margherita Pallavicino Mossi was married in 1924 to Marquess Giovanni Maria Visconti Venosta, Marquess of Bregio, Cavour and Sostegno (1887-1947), himself the son of Emilio Visconti Venosta (a prominent Italian politician) and of Maria Luisa Alfieri di Sostegno (a great-niece of the Count of Cavour).
Giovanni and Margherita Visconti Venosta didn't have children. They left the Castle of Santena (once the residence of Cavour) to the municipality of Turin and the Castle of Grosio to the municipality of Grosio, in order to be opened as a museum. Queen Paola was going to open a new library housed at the castle.

Sorry for this digression, but I didn't know about this lady before and found out that she was a very (genealogically) interesting person.
