Posting photos directly on the board uses the bandwidth of the photo agencies. We don't want to do that and make them upset; therefore removing their pictures from public access. If you want to post a picture please use the Attach An Image feature (where you take it from your own hardrive) or just link to the picture.
The one picture on the first page of Mathilde's hair in a pony tail - that wasn't a good look for her, in my opinon. While it made her look younger (although I think that was a picture from very early in their relationship - i.e. post-engagement during their tour of Belgium but before the wedding), you can see how fine her hair really is with the ends of the ponytail.
When she has it just loosely framing her face or pinned up, her hair looks much thicker.
I think Mathilde looks best with her hair loose. This year she has done it much more than all the other years, and I'm happy about that, because it gives her a more natural look. But I heard that prince Philippe doesn't really like it very much that his wife has her hair loose in his presence. I don't know if it's true of course.
Yes, there you have a point cathérine, she has left that girly thing she had when Philip showed her for the first time. After her pregnancy of Elisabeth, she is really a woman. And i think she knows very well what she's doing, and she's seems to be very clever.
