On December 18th, 2004, Paola, Astrid, Mathilde and Claire were present at the family info day of the Belgian military. It was a family day for the wives and children of Belgian soldiers who are on mission in the Balkans and in Afghanistan.

Of all the royal families, what I like on the Belgian Royal Family is that their royal ladies often appear at royal functions together and work cooperatively. Unlike in other royal families wherein the chances are slight that the wives of the princes would attend some royal tasks together. (except on bdays, funerals and etc of a family member)

Just like the recent activity they attended, CP Mathilde was there together with Queen Paola, Princess Claire and Princess Astrid.

There's been a sounding to find out wether the Belgians think prince Filip will make a good king: 73% said yes.

They didn't ask me of course :)

It's a good result I think.

Same from me :)

We'll see Mathilde and Filip soon enough again, with a whole list of new years receptions. They've been very busy, and 2005 will be very busy year again, with a.o. an economic mission to India and Mathilde's humanitarian mission to Mali.

Filip and Mathilde both made a beautifull gesture on christmas eve.

Filip visited the Belgian troups in Afghanistan who have to celebrate christmas far from home without their families. He stayed for a few hours and had dinner with them. He also had a meeting with president Kharzai and with ex-king Zaher Shah of Afghanistan.

Mathilde stayed in Belgium and had her christmas dinner with the poor and homeless in the Carolus Borromeus church in Antwerp.

On January 15th, Filip and Mathilde will be present at a ballet performance in Turnhout.

Later in the year there will be economic missions to Japan and India.

In the beginning of the year (February?), Mathilde will preside (as Unicef ambassador) a Belgian humanitarian mission to Mali.

Mathilde spends christmas with the underpriviledged

About 550 persons had gathered in the baroque Carolus Borromeus church in Antwerp for a free meal offered by the St Egidius community, like each year on christmas eve. On the menu were tomatoesoup, chicken with vegetables and coffee and pie.

Princess Mathilde arrived unanounced at 19h15. She stayed untill the end of the feast (21h00). She talked to the homeless, had soup with them and a glass of wine.

Jan De Volder, spokesman of the St Egidius community said "Mathilde knew about our project and showed a lot of interest, that's why she decided to pass by herself this time."
