Video of VTM

Go to "Bekijk deel 1", right at the beginning you can see snippets of Philippe & Mathilde at the gala night of the king Baudouin foundation, visiting Shape, and prince Philippe receiving Chinese astronauts at the palace.

Thanks for the video, Catherine. I loved seeing Mathilde in the school with the little girl who said: 'J'ai quelque chose pour toi!' (I've got something for you!) and Mathilde's reply: 'Quelque chose pour moi? Oooh!' (Something for me? Oooh!). So cute! She's so great with kids. :)

A new portrait I have not seen of Mathilde before, beautiful dress, hopefully she will wear it so we can see all of it. I think it is the first formal gala portrait I have seen of her ever. (edit: added Philippe as well) From the 60th celebration webisite

Thank you Larzen, these are really good portraits, I'd love to see a full length version of it. I've never seen Mathilde wearing this gown, it looks superb on her!

I hate to start rumors, but when I saw this pic, I was struck by what appears to be a 'bump'. Think Mathilde is pregnant again or is it the angle of the pic?

It has been questioned several times wether she is pregnant or not after she gave birth to Emmanuel. I think we have to conclude that she just didn't manage to regain her flat belly from before. Just some pounds extra on a unhappy place, like a lot of women have ... :)

Why do watermarks always seem to be placed badly? :(

Anyway thanks for posting the pictures.
