Yep, the Tour & Taxis site was named after the ‘von Thurn und Taxis’ family, who owned this marshy area in Brussels and used this land as grazing land for its ‘Horse Post’ horses. In the beginning of the 20th century a huge and still very impressive building complex has been put up: the Royal Warehouse. More about this can be found here: Tour & Taxis

Prince Laurent was Dom Duarte's bestman so I would say both families are very close.

Who knows? Specially looking on her last orange gown on Willem-Alexander's birthday party.

Maybe she just put some extra weight?

The palace has not released a statement that Mathilde is pregnant, so untill they do we better stop this discussion. Please refrain from more comments, questions about this. Further replies to this alleged pregnancy will be deleted without notice.

Thanks for understanding,
