I hope Princess Mathilde has sunscreen slathered all over them. Children of that age really shouldn't be tanned at all, since it's easy to control their movements and whether or not they have sunscreen on. The sun is not your friend, and a suntan is just sun damage. Aside from the potential health issues, these children, particularly the little princess, will be photographed for their entire lives, best to avoid leathery skin and wrinkles.

By the way, the little girl (bridesmaid) that is holding the children's hands is a very beautiful girl. I wonder who she is.

Thanks to everyone for the pics! I love the bride's dress. It was simple and elegant IMO. Mathilde looked great! I even loved that crazy hat..and Claire...the epitome of class and grace. She so reminds me of a young Grace Kelly! It was great to see Queen Fabiola as well.

She´s the women with the red dress, the off-white hat and the bright smile, hidden behind Hélène.

Here’s a better pic (from left to right Countess Anne, the groom’s mother Donna Avagora and Count Patrick d'Udekem d'Acoz).

Oh great! More photos of this pretty wedding - thank you for them. I have a couple of questions, is Helene the name of the groom's mother? And also, is the nanny with the children named "Fie"? Is this the same one that was reading to the children at the christening of Emmanuel and who was on the bike ride with them on the recent photo shoot? If this is all the same nanny she sure seems to have a great, loving relationship with Elisabeth and Gabriel -- what a treasure she must be!

The name of groom´ s mother is according to Henri M. (post #94) Donna Avogara, the Dowager Marchioness Carlo Pallavicini née Dei Conti Azzoni Avogadro. Hélène (* 1979) is Mathilde´s youngest sister.

Gabriel and Elisabeth are accompanied by their nanny Petra. She is with them since Elisabeth’s birth. And you are right; Petra is pictured many times with them (e.g. on the beach at Elisabeth’s first summer holiday, reading a book at Emmanuel’s baptism and on the bike during the last photo session). Petra shares the work with a second nanny, but I don’t know her name - so maybe this is “Fie” and she took care of Emmanuel on the wedding day?
BTW here is a pic of Fie(?) during vacation in France 2003.

The nanny in this picture is called 'Fia'. We could see her in the documentary on the crown princely family about 2 years (?) ago which was broadcast both on VTM and VRT. She was waiting outside the Laeken palace with Elisabeth when Gabriel came home for the first time.

Thank you. I was confused as to whether Donna was a title or a first name -- so I assume her first name is Donna Avogara. The photos continue to be beautiful. Catherine I love the photo you posted of Elisabeth and Gabriel greeting the priests!

Yes, I love that photo too, the two of them so cute and well behaved :)

Alfonso's mother's name is Avogara Azzoni Avogadro. Avogara is her first name. (Donna is the same as Mrs., like doña in Spanish)

From Rex Features

in the 2nd picture, the lady in the blue dress is countess Honorine d'Ursel, one of Elisabeth's best friends.

Hullo, I am a new member from Scotland.

I seem to remember reading when Mathilde married Philippe that her father was given a higher title (perhaps from Baron to Count?). Does anyone know if that was the case?

Yes, that's right. Mathilde's father eldest brother is was a baron, the younger brothers jonkheren/chevaliers. At the marriage of Philippe & Mathilde they all became counts/countesses.
