Yes, I did receive a christmascard from Filip and Mathilde, but this year it comes without a photo, it's a plain thank you-card, just like the one we received for Emmanuel's birth.

Great photos, Hannelore and Jelka! I especially like the second picture in post 143 of Mathilde. She looks as though she is encouraging someone with her facial attentiveness, if that is such and expression.

Didn't know where to post this (as there is no thread on Mathilde's family) but 'Renee' posted on the Benelux Royals MB that it is said on the Royaute2 site that Countess Elisabeth d'Udekem-d'Acoz (sister of Mathilde) is engaged to Markgraf Alfonso Pallavicini (b. 1964), son of Markgraf Karl-Alexander Pallavicini and of Avagora Ctsa degli Azzoni Avagadro. Alfonso is a nephew of Duchess Helene of Wurttemberg.

Is Elisabeth the one who dated with Prince Charles-Phillipe d'Orleans, Duke of Anjou? Or is that Helene? Anyway, I believe Charles-Phillipe is courting the younger Duchess of Cadaval these days.

Italian I believe, but his family was a prominent one in the austrian-hungarian empire, and his anscestos married a lot of tsjech/hungarian nobles. Probably he is related to Marie-Christine of Kent.

In this week point de vue there's a picture of Philippe, Paola and Mathilde (with another couple) on the boat in Italy. It's a different one from the those in the papers last week.

This afternoon I was listening to Klara, Belgian classical radio. There was an interview with sister Jeanne Devos. She's a Belgian mission sister who's been working in India whole her life. She works for women's rights, education for girls, against sexual abuse of children and for a better life for female servants. this year she was nominated for the Nobel peace prize.

Princess Mathilde visited her last year, on her economic mission to India.

She said in the interview that she's going to open the American congress on child abuse in San Diego in a few days. Because this congress collaborates with a similar congress in Leuven (Belgium), they had asked princess Mathilde to open the congress in San Diego. She accepted, but because of the birth of Emmanuel and her busy agenda she's finally not able to go. Jeanne Devos will go in her place and Mathilde has sent a videomessage that will be shown.

On Mathilde's visit to her work in India Jeanne Devos said the following : "Perhaps it has to do with her past as speech therapist, but she knew how to approach the children and make them feel at ease. In their eyes she was some kind of fairy tale princess. After she visited our institute, I accompanied her on a part of the D'Mello Road [slums in Bombay] She was very touched by what she saw. I'm seventy years old : I notice immediately when people are sincere and when they aren't. Machteld, her collaborator, has phoned a few times since they left. If I should need it, I know how to reach the princess."

Thank you for that information. I enjoy reading comments like that because it gives greater insight into the persons character. In this case, it only confirms the insights you can see glean from photos. CP Mathilde just gets better and better doesn't she? Catherine, can you arrange for some of us to meet with her?!:)
