Together with Unicef.be, the duchess of Brabant will visit the Supply Division of Unicef in Copenhagen. This visit is part of the "education, my right" campaign that Mathilde supports.

I wish I lived near Copenhagen, but unfortunately it takes five hours by train to get to Copenhagen from where I live. I'm sure there would be a chance to see her if I went and knew the location of the Supply Division of Unicef. It would definitely be great to go, but then again December is not exactly the cheapest month of the year, and the trainticket isn't cheap either. Maybe I'll have to settle for (hopefully) seeing her on the Danish news. Anyways, thank you for the information Cathérine. :)

Oh that's a pitty, but 5 hours is indeed a long time to maybe only catch a glimpse of her...:(

But Mathilde is a very active travelling woman, so I'm sure you'll still get the chance to 'bump into her' sooner or later :)

That has just made our day We really hope we'll be able to go in there, but since there isn't a exact time yet, we can't know it yet....

From: http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty...aximamathilde/

18 NOVEMBER 2004

There was a distinctly aristocratic feel to the United Nations headquarters in New York this week when two of Europe’s leading royals jetted in for a visit. Princess Mathilde of Belgium and Princess Maxima of the Netherlands met up in the Big Apple in an effort to help some of the world’s poorest communities.

Both women attended a gala event to launch the International Year of Microcredit on Wednesday evening. The United Nations is aiming to step up the fight against poverty next year, by offering small loans to would-be entrepreneurs in impoverished countries.

"A very small loan can change people's lives by enabling them to generate their own income with all the positive consequences that entails," explained Maxima. The 33-year-old argued that microcredits were one of the most effective ways of fighting poverty. “Let us not forget that a dollar earned is worth much more than a dollar received as a donation," she affirmed.

Mathilde meanwhile emphasised the role these loans can play in fighting sexual inequality. "The Year of Microcredit will highlight how women's talents and innovation, together with access to credit and savings, can give them the power to make long term investments in their families, communities, and their children's lives," she said.

The two women are not the only glamorous stars throwing their weight between the UN’s plans. Queen Rania of Jordan will also be acting as an emissary for the project, while veteran singer Enrique Iglesias is on the board of advisors.

Pictures:

I think my best chances of seeing her would be if I went to Belgium while she and/or the rest of the royal family had an official engagement. It would cost more than a trainticket , but definitely worth a visit and it would be money well spent. :) But seeing as she is in Denmark I might go afterall, so if you get anymore information on her visit like time and location could you post it here? Thanks. :)

I love that white blouse Mathilde wore at the UN. She certainly knows the meaning of the words elegance and style :):):):)

Seems like there is a look-alike of Mathilde present in the world. I found small pic of a woman (from brainpix) who looks remarkably like Princess Mathilde of Belgium.
I am putting the pics together for better comparison...check it out.

The Real



The Fake
