The Gloucesters are probably among my favourite British Royals. They get on with the job in hand, don't annoy people unnecessarily, don't court media attention, and generally manage to give a good impression of "the Royals".

Long may they live...

Duchess in Belgium

The Duchess of Gloucester was in Bermuda over the Remembrance weekend. And now she is off in Belgium, attending a conference organised by the Queen of the Belgians about vulnerable runaway children, attended by numerous other European royals. I'm surprised the conference hasn't received any coverage in the British press or media that I can see. Lots of photos including the Duchess here.

Hee Hee...I'm there (in my 60s), and I'm still thinking that. Infanta Christina looks great...they all do. Paola does "fluffy" AGAIN!

Its too bad we don't hear enought about them instead of the nastiness of the York scandals.

The Duchess is a nice lady, but she should really change her hairstyle. Her coat is beautiful indeed. Thanks for sharing!

She has a fab figure. Very well preserved; I wonder if she has to diet or work out?

The United Kingdom marks the beatification of Pope John Paul II
The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester represented The Queen at the beatification ceremony of the late Pope John Paul II in Vatican, on 1 May 2011. Can you get any pictures of them during this event?

There is a whole thread under the Belgium royal house (I think) devoted to this event and it has pictures....
