Thanks for the photos. Mathilde looks nice in the lime green jacket and white pants. I love her style.

I feel exactly the same way about Mathilde, despite the fact I tend to be the most cynical of people. There's this unexplicable karma about her that, even looking at a picture of her, makes one feel better about the world at large, strange as that may sound. Most royals out there, mind you, don't seem to have this ability, on the contrary, I see a picture of them and can't help but think, "you should get off your duff and stop pretending and wearing those tiaras and get a real job already!" But not with her, for whatever reason.

I love Mathilde's green jacket, it's a color that wouldn't work in a lot of people but in her it looks great; both her and Phillippe are wearing very summer-y clothes lately and those make them look very good!:)

Wow, how articulately you stated my feelings. Except, IMO, I think she is the most beautiful and elegant of the CP's!!.

Rchat, you stated something I have thought ever since they got married. Before their marriage the only pictures I ever saw of CP Philippe were in Royalty or Majesty magazines. He always seemed to be someone who was not truly happy. Ever since their marriage, he seems so happy, relaxed and more confident. The vives I get from this couple when I see the pictures of them together on official engagements is that they have a real rapport and intimacy between them. Perhaps, the love of a wonderful woman changed his life. For some reason, even though I don't know them, I am truly happy for them and the family they have created. Hope they have decades of happy lives in front of them.

They have the right to enjoy some vacation also. And there is always one certainty in summer: 21 July (If Mathilde is not to pregnant what isn't the case. So one more week to wait. And after that I guess we'll have to wait until september.

I saw them on tv too..only on the tv channel they showed a close up of CP Mathilde and announced her as the "the princess of belgium'. Then when the camera zoomed out I could see CP Philippe sitting right beside her, but the commentators didn't mention/know who he was..lol

This is from this week's Story: an interview with Marlène de Wouters. She's a Belgian-Dutch noblewoman who'se been working for Flemish tv for many years, mostly presenting talk shows. She now works for 5tv, a women's channel. She presents a royalty program there, Bal Royal. She also presents the queen Elisabeth competition. On the evening before the national day the organization of the QEC gives a free concert that the royal family attends. Here are some pics of Marlène de Wouters talking to Mathilde and some of her comments:

Princess Mathilde and princess Astrid talked for quite a while with Marlène. "It was a very nice chat!" Marlène says laughing. "Mathilde and I were just having a woman's talk. Obviously we discussed our children (laughs), but also the wedding of her sister Elisabeth and the busy days ahead of her. She also asked me about how I manage to combine my tv career with motherhood. So a real chat among women (laughs). Princess Mathilde is a strong woman, with both feet on the ground. Most of all she's a mother."
"Princess Astrid is always very atentive, and remembers the smallest details, she's intrested in many things and has a lot of affinity with the human side of things. She complimented me on my blouse, said she found it so summery and colourful."

Thanks for tranlating this article, Hannelore. I always find it interesting to read opinions of those who have had first hand experience with royalty!

Totally agree with you Cascadia. They seem so compatible.

If there indeed are someone here on the Belgian part of the forum who didn't know - they must have been hiding under a rock for the past years. Almost every time I read an article about Mathilde, it is mentioned that she is Belgian born.
