Thank you for the pictures Hannelore. :) I've never seen them before.
You're welcome !

Judging by the title it has to be a royal program, but not a Belgian one, we've got 3 : Place Royale, C'est du Belge and Royalty.

Thanks Hannelore. :) I saw on teletext that the program is also on next Friday, so I'll have a look to see if it will feature more royals.
Lucky you have royal programs. Wish we had that in Denmark, which showed the Danish Royal Family and other royal families too, sadly we don't. But then it's nice with royal websites.:)

July 16th : prince Filip and princess Mathilde open the zuidfoor / foire du midi (a fairground) in Brussels.


Video :

Go to "Zaterdag 16/07" -> 19h -> 7:00

http://www.vtm.be/nieuws/index_bekijkonline.htm

At their arrival Filip & Mathilde received a wooden rocking horse. Mathilde said " I know two children wo will be delighted with this". They ate pancakes with chocolate sauce and doughnut balls (THE traditional fairground food - the one and only attraction for me ) and had a glass of champagne. They tried some of the games. Filip had to throw as many basketballs as possible in one minute - which wasn't a big success. But then he went to the shooting stand where he shot the first prize in a single shot, and was a bit proud yes,yes (I wonder wether Mathilde got to chose a teddybear :)). Mathilde went for the motherly approach and fished for plastic ducks, she said it's a big favorite of Elisabeth's. The woman from the stand wanted to let her chose a gift but she kindly declined. Then Filip went in the haunted house, not with Mathilde but with his safety agent - really!!
As a last thing they posed on the merry go round together.
The woman of the giant weel was disappointed they didn't stop at her stand.

Thanks for this summary Hannelore. The couple sounds even more charming after reading this story! :) They are very endearing and family-oriented individuals, it is clear.

If they weren't royal, they'd be the kind of people you'd want as neighbours, as parents of your children's friends or classmates.

They opened the fair because it celebrates its 125th anniversary.

Look at their faces in this pic : proud Filip, amazed Mathilde and a the lady of the shooting stand amused :)

This was when Filip shot the prize in one go. I bet he'll still be talking about it in a few weeks, haha or telling Gabriel : "You know what daddy did today" (With Mathilde roling her eyes...)

Thanks for all the pictures Hannelore! :)

The cotton candy pictures are hiliarious -- the cotton candy is bigger than their heads! :p

You don't usually see Phillippe diving so eagerly into food in pictures as he is in this one: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...hmentid=169953. He must have a sweet tooth!

Thank you for the pictures Jelka and Hannelore and thank you for the video Hannelore.:):) It looks like they had a great time and what delicious food, just seeing the pictures makes me hungry. Yes, the pictures of them eating the cotton candy that's bigger than their heads are quite funny Alexandria, but also very sweet and romantic how they eat the cotton candy together.:) The pictures of them sitting together are also very sweet and romantic. I'm sure Philippe will be braging to his kids how he shot the first prize in a single shot, but I doubt he'll be talking about how he did with the basketballs.

I found a few more pictures from their visit from Newscom.

From Belga.

Opening the zuidfoor/foire du midi was not the only thing Philippe did on July 16th 2005. He also attended the Belgium dance event in Eupen, which is part of all the festivities for the 175 years of Belgium.

Philippe and Mathilde are really being honored. First with their faces painted on the horses a while ago, and now at the Blankenberghe sand sculpture festival in Blankenberghe.

Thanks Mette :)

A little summary of the video :

The Groeningemuseum in Bruges is specialized in Flemish masters and has already had a lot of royal visitors, therefore nobody was nervous and there was a nice atmosphere. The duke and duchess arrived around 10 a.m. and stayed a bit longer than an hour (although it's a very prestigious Memling exhibition there aren't many paintings). The man talking was the curator, he said the couple was really fascinated by Memling and often walked towards a certain painting dragging the guide and curator behind them :)
They also knew a lot about the renaissance art, they seemed very familiar with 15th and 16th century painting.
