After all these years I feel redundant talking about how elegant, beautiful, and serene the Duchess looks. But it is true, event after event, year after year the Duchess is still captivating, beautiful, and elegant with the most lovely and peaceful demeanor.:)
Crown Princess Mathilde will dues in September and Crown Princess Mary will dues October after her and Crown Princess Letizia will dues in November after both and also Crown Princess Merit-Marit will dues in December! and Crown Princess Maxima will dues in July not June!
Alisa, I completely agree. There is some serenity about Mathilde that is just there every time -- along with an elegance. I so much enjoy the photos. Thank you Catherine and everyone else. I also think it is hard to compare her "tummy size" with Mary since this is Mathilde's third baby and Mary's first!

The theme of the activities in the park were better relationships between the rich north and the poor south of the world. Children were building a symbolic bridge and 'honest food' (fair trade) was available.
Thank you HMQueenElizabethII and Cathérine for the wonderful pictures :). I completely agree with what everyone said about Mathilde :). I also really like the outfit she had on.
Looks like Philippe and Mathilde are in for a busy couple of days. Hope that means we get to see a lot of pictures :).
With these new pictures of Mathilde I thought I'd just post some old ones of Philippe alone and with others :).
1. At the birth of Elisabeth 2001.
2. In Mexico 2003 (Maybe we should start a new thread: Philippe's hats ).
3&4. In Australia 2002.

Yes, probably her belly is bigger, because it´s her third baby. Then again the Benelux-Royals seems to have a special tradition to a) calculate the birth date wrong or b) to inform us wrong. So it could easily be, that the baby would come in September.
But even when it would come in October...what I´ve read out, Mathilde´s baby is due in the beginning of October and Mary´s in the end. Almost a whole month difference-this could also explain, why Mathilde looks so much more pregnant.
Belgium's pregnant Princess Mathilde strolled through downtown Brussels on Wednesday, staying close to home on an official royal outing.
The princess, who announced her expectant status in mid-April, was looking casually stylish for the Royal Park occasion, which marked the launch of a development campaign.
While her trousers and rose-coloured cardigan, accessorised with a deep pink scarf, were certainly comfy, Mathilde's smart beige shoes demonstrated she hasn't given up high heels despite her burgeoning bump.
It's no surprise that Prince Philippe's wife is staying snazzy during her pregnancy. She's had plenty of experience with maternity fashion, as October's arrival will be her third little one.
