Johann - you are so on top of everything - first the Luxemborg wedding and now the update here. I am glad you clarified the activities of M & M because I, too, was under the impression their UN work was continuing, except I thought both were still involved with microfinance, so was wrong.

I also appreciate the TV link showing Mathilde and Fabiola. I miss seeing the Crown Princely Belgian family of late - any ideas on why they are not out in public more?

Prince Philippe inspected the company ALFACAM - EURO1080 in Lint today. Alfacam provides TV-facilities and services to broad-casters and production houses. As a participant of Belgium’s open enterprise day Alfacam invited the public to have a closer look inside. Philippe was accompanied by his new advisor Boudewijn Dereymaeker (former Belgian ambassador in Zimbabwe). He even took some extra time and elongated his visit.
A small TV clip can be found here.

I don´t know. The official agenda reflects only a part of their work and there are some unofficial activities out of the public eye.
And both, Mathilde and Philippe, got a new advisor – so maybe they took a “training” period.

BTW I stumbled across some pics of Trooping the Colours in Bruges some weeks ago. (picturedesk)

Thanks Johann, I never knew that the Duke of Edinburgh went to Bruges, nice to see pictures of the event :)


To Royal Fan: The Duke of Edinburgh and the Duke of Brabant are only very distantly related, both are descendants from King Christian VIII of Denmark.

Christian VIII -> George I of Greece -> Andrew of Greece -> Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

Christian VIII -> King Frederik VIII of Denmark -> Pss Ingeborg of Sweden-> Astrid of Belgium -> King Albert II -> Phillipe, Duke of Brabant.

what happened to mathilde....

how is it she si not going with philippe. i think her presence is a charming 'point' towards the economic mission. probably she wants to stay with the kids, and is busy on her own.

I don’t think so. We rarely see Philippe without a tie, so you don’t have to be concerned.
The open enterprise day is an informal event. More than 1 million curious Belgians had a look inside factories and companies, almost everyone was in casual clothes – so Philippe opted for a less official outfit too and surely wasn’t underdressed.

I absolutely love Mathilda's brown suit, very flattering and very hip! Also, I must say that I like Phillipe's "casual" turtleneck outfit. It is very becoming on him and doesn't make him look so "stuffy", very approachable. Bravo to the both of them!
