These pics are from the reception held at the parliament on King's Day 04'. The outfit is navy and white but it doesn't have a flower. I'll keep looking.

Another addition to the Maxima-Mathilde friendship : to celebrate their engagement (of Maxima and WA I mean) a private party was held at the castle of Terhulpen in Belgium. It was very private, to be able to let Maxima's parents be there as well. Mathilde & Filip were also present at this party.

Emily, I think you're referring to the Te Deum that's held every year in February to commemorate the deceased members of the Belgian RF. You'll find pictures of Mathilde wearing that blue coat with the blue hat+flower in the section on royal fashion under Mathilde's hats.

Phillipe and Mathilde were already married then (I think) and must have been friends of W-A. She was probably introduced to them and not only became friends with them but they may have also helped her to learn the ropes of royal life before moving to Amsterdam and officially announcing the relationship.
thanks for the better explantion , my way of english can be very bad

Can anyone comment on the relationship between Beatrix and Albert/Paola? It seems the Crown Princely couples enjoy each other so I am wondering if their parents do?

I don't think that anything is scheduled after the 12th of December, but I did hear something about half way through December. I'm sure they'll post it on the official site as soon as an announcement is made.

Half December. It will be a private ceremony at the chapel castle of Ciergnon, like for Elisabeth & Gabriël.

it's a shame when Philippe travels without Mathilde, the coverage seems to be so few.
It's been several days into his visit and we only saw 1 photo.

Yes, it's strange there haven't been more pictures of his visit. I just had a look at some of the photo agencies, but couldn't find any.:( There were a lot of pictures when he went to Japan alone on an economic mission earlier this year, so I hope this is the first picture of many.
Thank you very much for the picture Fanletizia,:) and Hannelore I agree with you that Philippe looks good in the picture.:)

That's probably it then. A lot of royals certainly did visit Japan this year. Belga finally had some pictures, but unfortunately only two.:( Hope we'll get to see more pictures either from Belga or another photo agency.

Pictures from Belga.

November 23rd 2005.

1) Philippe during a meeting with Brazilian Energy and Mines Minister Silas Rondeau at the Energy and Mines Ministry in Brazilia.

2) Philippe looks on during a visit at the Brazilian National Congress in Brazilia.
