I have always adored that orange jacket on Mathilde. She just looks so elegant. I bet she's counting down until the baby comes - I know I am. :) Thanks for the photos.

She looks lovely but she also looks tired! My guess is the due date is right around the corner!

Seegerpress has a number of images of the lovely princess. She's always so understated and elegant--no false showiness or preening--just natural grace.

I don't know from which event are these pictures, though they're certainly from a recent one. (Please forgive me if this is a double post)

Princess Mathilde looks lovely as always.

She always looks great! A classic beauty like the late Princess Grace. I am currently reading old issues of Majesty...and one of the articles references the Bachelor Princes (Felipe, Hakoon, Frederick and Phillipe). They mention the girlfriends of each of them, but no particular mention of a special girlfriend of Phillipe. Look how life can change in ten years...married to a beautiful and compassionate women, two beautiful kids and one on the way!

I have a question to our Belgian posters, will they announce when Mathilde has gone into the hospital to have the baby or will they just announce once the baby is born?

I've read somewhere that Philippe has never been seriously connected to any woman in the past. Of course I don't know if that's completely true. In a book I have about the 10 European royal families it says that he has been close to getting engaged several times, and mentions Alexia of Greece. I don't really know if I believe it, because the book also states other things as facts, which aren't true. So the saying "You shouldn't believe everything you read" is quite true. However, I think it's wonderful that Philippe and Mathilde were able to keep their relationship a secret, so they didn't have to worry about reporters and photographers. They are indeed a wonderful and beautiful couple with a lovely growing family.

Back to topic and recent events. Here's a link to pictures of Mathilde's two recent official duties:

Could you tell me what issue of Majesty this is? I'd love to try and get a copy of it. It's hard to find articles on Phillipe and Mathilde in the states. Thanks!

From Newscom.

September 16th 2005.

Philippe visits the open air exhibit "Horse Parade Belgium 2005" in Central Brussels. 170 horses have been decorated - one of them with Philippe's face - for the show, which will travel across Belgium to promote art before being sold for charity.

Many people in Belgium think that Princess Mathilde is gonna deliver her third baby about now and 10 days . I know that was told that the baby would be born in oktober , but with Elisabeth and Gabriel it was just the same , so I think 23 or 25 september... there will be a new princess or prince in Belgium:)
