An article by Flandersnews.be about the visit:

Quote:
Thu 14/02/08 - Britain's Prince Charles was at the European Parliament on Thursday morning. The Prince was there to talk about climate change with a group of MEPs and invited guests.



He also used his visit to hold talks with the Speaker of the European Parliament, Hans-Gert Pöttering.

The man that is next in line to the British throne is on a two-day visit to Brussels.

Prince Charles is holding a series of meetings on issues related to global warming and climate change.

A pity that the Duchess of Cornwall didn't accompany the PoW, she hasn't seen much of the continental royalty yet AFAIK (only the Norwegians?).

Do we know yet when Mathilde will start cutting down on her duties? It seems to me that with her previous pregnancies she stopped some 6 weeks before her due date, but I could be wrong.

I also wonder when they might start bringing Elisabeth along on official visits, so that she might begin to learn her "trade" from an early age. It seems to me like that would be an ideal thing to do.

She looked tired today at the memorial mass for King Baudoin. I wonder how much longer she's going to keep up her schedule too.

I think she will start cutting down her duties in the following weeks! Nowadays her agenda had not so many visits as last year! But with 7 more weeks of pregnancy I think she needs rest and will not do so many official duties until then!

Elisabeth did already some official duties! She visited a 'reading' aftenoon in antwerp together with her mother, Technopolis in Mechelen with her parents, an exposition about the opening of the Belgian basis in Antartica and she was presented at the "Te Deum" 2 years ago!

I think Filip and Mathilde want to introduce her slowly and not do to much official duties now she is still a child! There is also not much time, she goes to school every day from 8,20 until 15,30 except on wednesday than they have a the afternoon off! She is also followind dancing classes! so the only time available would be in the schoolholidays or the weekend!

I would love to see her more but I think we will have to wait a few more years until she will regulary do some activities with her parents a year! Filip and Mathilde always have said that the wanted to give their childern a childhood as normal as possible!

The reportage will be ared by VTM. Levenslijn is a campaign to raise money to help traffic victims, especially children. As you know Mathilde has lost her sister and grandmother in a caraccident, so she is very involved.

Prins Filip en Prinses Mathilde getuigen in een deze reportage over hun bekommernis en hun zorg die ze koesteren voor de verkeersveiligheid en de verkeersslachtoffers.

I have never seen a woman carry off her pregnancy as well as Mathilde. She really is the image of the radiating, expecting mother! And her husband looks so proud by her side, they seem to be a well-matched, loving couple even after eight years of marriage!
