Great photos everyone! Thank you so much for posting. I also appreciate the news on the visit to Tanzania and, as with the above post, I wonder if this is connected with Microcredit? Any ideas?

I just read at the SRMB that prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde will be present at the christening of the little prince in Denmark. It will be broadcasted live on German channel ZDF on the 21st January.

I'm a bit surprised that they are going. Are Frederik and Phillipe known to be close?

I wondered the same thing -- but I also think it is a nice opportunity for some of the young Crown Princely (even though they're not all called that) families to get together and further their (hopefully) friendships. I am hoping Felipe and Letizia will be included in the group since she is so new to the royal fold.

Not that I know (but then again what do I know ). But it's a nice surprise. We'll be seeing a lot of them the next weeks!

The children of the local village school were waiting for them outside. Mathilde asked them if they had had good results for their christmas bulletin. The little girl in the red coat gave her flowers. Mathilde asked how old she was and she stuck up two fingers, the princess turned to Filip, also showing him two fingers and saying "Like Gabriel".

When they visited the workshop they talked to the participants: how long had they ben there, what were they learning, what were their future plans; and to the trainers who also play an important role in motivating the participants to continue the job.
