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.
At which minute?

You're welcome selminha and Hannelore, and thank you for the summary of the videoclip Hannelore.:)
Nice that Philippe said he wanted to go back to the fairground with the children. Maybe he wants to go back to the shooting stand so he can show them how good he is, or to win a teddy bear for each of them.:)

More pictures from their visit to the fairground.
6+9) I love this machine. I always look for it when I visit the amusement park Tivoli in Copenhagen, but I must admit I've lost more money than I've won teddy bears - guess that's just the kid in me.

I like how Philippe holds his hand up to his face pretending to be scared of the ride - really funny.

The man who hosted the show, and who presented the different segments hosted the show from the Royal Palace in Laeken. In some of his presentations he was in the company of a member of the royal family - Kinga, Philippe and Mathilde's dog, and it's still as cute as it was when it was a puppy.:)

Hmmm...sounds interesting, maybe it was the documentary RTBF made on Filip & Mathilde (4 Belgian channels got to shoot a documentary and the results were 4 times quite different with different material). Or an old royalty program ?

Is there an episode every week, or was this a one time thing ?

Well, according to TV5 Europe's teletext there will be another program (Cote Cour) on Friday at 3.29 p.m. - 2.29 p.m. in London - and I doubt they'll show the same program as last week since they just re-ran that one. As far as I remember at the end of the crawling title it said 2005 or was it 2004? No, I'm pretty sure it was 2005. I'll certainly watch the program, and I'll let you know about the year at the end. Unless of course you're able to watch the program yourself.:) But the part with Philippe flying his helicopter was from 2002, so maybe that's from the documentary. Also Kinga was quite big so I doubt the program is that old.

Looked at TV5 Europe's teletext and the program (Cote Cour) is still on tomorrow, but at 3.27 p.m. - 2.27 p.m. in London. Not a big change in time, but I myself hate when I turn on the tv too late and miss the beginning of a program or movie, so I thought I'd just give the correct information.

I know that lot of you will react to what I'm about to say, but I find it exaggerate to speak of Mathilde like a saint on earth, a sort of new Sancta Gracia. As for myself, I don't like the image of "perfect princess" she tries to give us; I prefer princesses who are making little errors, who are some times more hesitant. And I don't like very much hear someone speaking of '"always perfect princess Mathilde". Look, it's just what she does want to show us (and I hate this), but does someone really know her? Maybe she's in private egoist, coleric, bad mood, and whatsoever.
My point is: princesses and princes are human like us, no human is perfect, even not Mathilde. You'll say I don't like Mathilde. No, I don't like her very much because of this image of "I'm perfect and I show it", which bothers me.
What's the point of idolatring a prince or princess? What's the point of idolatring someone? And, please, don't reply "all the Belgians love her", because it's not true. I have plenty of belgian friends, who are monarchists, but who can't stand anymore hearing "perfect princess Mathilde" or just speaking of Mathilde everytime at the information.
By the way, look at the way she dresses her children: nice, yes, but as perfect little children. Is it good for children to be shown by their parents like little perfect one? I don't think so. When they will be teenager, when they will have difficulties in the life, one will say "ah, but they were so perfect kids"...

Cathérine and others, I know perfectly well your opinion, but give me the right to think differently. I don't criticize Mathilde for the pleasure to criticize her, but I wanted to discuss this point with other people.

Well Danielane, I respect your opinion, but I don't think she tries to achieve a perfect image, I simply can not believe that it is Mathilde's intention to create the image of herself being a perfect princess, because I agree with you that such a thing does not exist, nobody is perfect, not even a prince/princess. I think she looks more humble to me than the other princesses, more casual. She just doesn't search the spotlights, and doesn't often make mistakes in her wardrobe (although I've seen her make some mistakes), that's all. But of course you have the right for your own opinion, although I don't think many people share it.
