Aaaah -- they're back! Great photos -- thanks to all of you who have posted! I have a question -- Mathilde always wears the same bracelet on her right hand except for very formal occasions. Does anyone know what is on the bracelet, who gave it to her, who made it? On occasion it has looked like there might be red stones (?rubies or perhaps ?garnets for her birthday month) in it but at other times, I'm not certain. Anyone who has info, I'd enjoy hearing about it. Thanks again for all the photos.

Today princess Mathilde and prince Philippe visited Crédal, the winner of the princess Mathilde prize 2005 in Louvain la Neuve. After a workmeeting in the building of this cooperative for alternative financing, the couple went to Apides in Court Saint Etienne, that benefited from the financing Crédal provided. In this carpenter company people who haven't had much education can be trained to becaome a carpenter.

Is it cold in Brussels today? Everyone in the photos looks very bundled up! Catherine the pictures are fantastic. I'm enjoying all of them. At risk of sounding 'greedy' are there also photos of them at the Mass for GDJC tonight?

It was freezing cold today, very cold wind.

The photos of the mass will be later today I guess, it was only at 17.00, it always takes a while before we get to see the photos.

Do you mean this one? She's been wearing it since her engagement, but she was a complete stranger before that time, so I don't know if she already had it or not. She wears this bracelet very often. It's got stones in different colors: green , blue, red ... Princess Máxima has something similar I've noticed.

Thank you to everyone who have posted pictures.:) They're simply wonderful. It's great to see Mathilde again, and she looks beautiful as always. Her outfit looks really great. It's great to see Philippe too of course.
Nice to hear what they did during the holidays with their trip to Italy. Wish they'd been in Portofino when I was there last year during the Summer. I hope someone is able to scan the pictures from the newspaper, because it would sure be appreciated.:)

Yes, that is the one. I am intrigued by it -- wondering if the stones are significant for birthday months or if they were just put there for the pretty combination. I have also noticed Maxima has one but wasn't sure if they were identical and, therefore, perhaps a popular bracelet in northern Europe, or what. Perhaps it will remain a mystery - but thanks for the photo and follow-up - that is indeed the bracelet.

I had noticed that too. I wonder if she and Maxima went shopping together some time and bought them.

or is it just another example of the surprising phenomenon of Mathilde's and Maxima's choosing the same things to wear.
