I doubt that, although I am not a dog expert who can say that with absolute certainty by seeing a photo. But I what I can see that it is the kind of vivid animals that always find something interesting to explore in the opposite direction the owner thinks to go. I like that kind of dogs:). And yes I also do like these pictures of the queen at the park and the serres:)

The young students must be very familiar with their royal family, since Princess Mathilde came to meet the young ones only two years years ago. I´m especially thinking of that redheaded boy in the second picture (right side). The last time he was very interested in Mathilde´s famous legs - now he had the chance to shake his king´s hand ;-) [Source: Belga]

I wouldn't make the comparission with Princess Diana. she had a more powerfull legs. Mathildes legs are very slim, what makes them in a sence elegant.

Last week a street shooting took place in Antwerp in which a man shot and killed a black woman and a child.A second woman, of Turkish origin, was critically injured in the shooting and a responding police officer shot and injured the culprit.
The woman who was killed was working as an au-pair. She was taking care of a Belgian child, who was also killed in the shooting. Both died at the scene.
The Antwerp public prosecution office later said the shooting appeared to be racially-motivated. The arrested suspect was described by authorities as an 18-year-old skinhead with extreme-right sympathies.

Today the little girl was burried. The king and queen also sent a wreath which was put next to the coffin.
