Thanks for those pictures stephanie, nice to see that the two families (Luxembourg and Belgium) are so close. And esp. nice to see that Queen fabiola attended. I hope GD Jean is doing well, as he doesn'; t seem to be there.

The little Archduchess Gabriella is going to be a great beauty, she is already a strikingly pretty young lady.

I adore looking at photos of CP Philippe's children, they look like triplets! I mean, they all look exactly alike!

Princess Elisabeth always has that solemn, serious expression but she is so cute when she smiles. She is going to make a wonderful Queen someday, I think.

Thanks for these family pictures, Stephanie.
Seems Elisabeth inherited her mother´s looong legs and is keen to point out she needs the attention of her pretty tired looking mother too. Quite handy for Mathilde to have her brother-in-law Lorenz and her cousin Grand Duke Henri around to distract this little lady and make up for the absence of her husband.
And too bad Grand Duke Jean wasn´t able to attend. I hope he is safe and sound, it´s always a pleasure to see him around his (great)grandkids.

Ah, 'our' iron Neelie, a very appropriate attendee as she has been working on women emancipation in my own country for decades. She seems to be the only foreigner that attended btw, though she must be living in Brussels at the moment.

I love when Mathilde wears strong colors as Red or Fuschia! I can't say that I'm a big fan of the fuschia coat, it is too short imo, but I really love that color on her.

Prince Phillipe visited Oesterbank (Oysterbank) on 21 March, Princess Mathilde was supposed to attend but she cancelled, due to her advanced pregnancy!

deredactie.be - Walter Baele kruipt in huid van prins Filip

Over VTM

VTM is planning a comic parody series about Philip and Mathilde.
Walter Baele will play Philip. A lot of people find him funny, but I think his humor is from lower quality.

VTM + Walter Baele means nothing to look forward to IMO.

What a handsome couple and what beautiful children they have. They are so calm and dignified, it´s a pleasure to see their photos.
I had the great honour of meeting in person, his grandfather, ex-King Leopold III, when he visited Manaus, in the Amazonas, where I lived.

Prince Philippe represents Belgium in Bejing

The Belgian government has decided to send Prince Philippe to the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Bejing this summer. There will be no other official (government) representative for Belgium (except the athletes of course).

The green party regrets the decision of the government to send the crownprince to China, 'human rights have lost it from other interests', according to Wouter De Vriendt
