Prince Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands told that his wife speeks Spanish with her daughter.
I wondered if you think Paola also spoke her native tongue to Philippe, Laurent and Astrid. I've never heard one of them ever speak Italian ...

I know that at least Filip & Astrid speak fluent Italian, so Paola probably spoke it with them. (Albert's Italian is very good too).

When they were children they also often spent their holidays in Italy with the Italian family.

That's what I also supposed, but it's kinda strange to imagine them with Italian accent 'Cause they all have a french 'r' even when they speek Dutch.
But thanks for sharing thoughts.

She looks great, so fresh and clean and elegant. This is one princess that has her act together. She will make a beautiful queen one day.

No they aren't, they were bought at the Belgian jeweler Leysen in 2003.
From an article in PDV (interview with Leysen):

"The collection of jewels from Leysen was used for the winter défilé of Belgian fashion designer Pierre Gauthier (where Mathilde also buys gala dresses - another good customer of Gauthier is princess Sibilla of Luxemburg), but it was at the polo club in Paris, during another défilé that prince Filip saw Leysen's collection. The royal couple passed by at the jeweler's shop on the Sablon in Brussels to take a closer look at the collection. Afterwards Filip came back on his own to buy a surprise gift for his wife : these white and yellow diamond earrings."

She wore them for the first time at the children's gala in Versailles, and also at the gala dinner for the Greek president. On trade mission in China, Mathilde combined them with a gorgeous green velvet and fur dress from Natan. The yellow diamonds were replaced by emeralds - beautiful!

Thank you for the story and photos Hannelore. I had actually seen those photos before, but I never really paid attention to those lovely earrings until that close-up photo. The earrings are like its wearing beautiful and elegant.
