On their first day on the job, Philippe and Mathilde received their guests in the Palace in Brussels.

The weekly meeting between the King and Prime Minister will also take place there. (The PM can walk from his office to the Palace)
And Minister of Pensions, Alexander De Croo, said that Philippe will be working from the Palace in Brussels. Like his uncle did. Albert used to receive a lot of guests in Laeken.
Philippe and Mathilde seem to want to keep the Castle in Laeken really as their home and go to Brussels to work.

From the 1st of August until the 8th of September, you can visit the Palace.

I visited Brussels last weekend for some Christmas shopping and saw the Royal Palace at night just as it is in *Mara*'s photos! It's such a magnificent building and the Christmas tree is enormous - the whole scene is stunning! It was very quiet outside the palace, not many people about so the whole experience was quite surreal.

The first time I "saw" it was in a light fog. We'd got lost and a kind person redirected us. In minutes we were in the crowded Grand Place area (and in a lovely restaurant recommended by same kind person).

It is so close to the hub-bub but is never overwhelmed. I love Brussels and this area.
