Forgot to say: happy birthday to the King!!!

His wife gave him a very nice present I think, all the loving words she said on television (how her husband posessed a natural kindness and charm, etc.)

I was happy to see footage of the Queen kissing her husband (on stage), during the 175-25 celebrations. It looked so sweet!

I haven't been able to see it!!! Due to circumstances I was sitting in a train (had to get back home from my parent's house, because I have to work tomorrow) and had no other chance than to take a train which would interfere with my plans of watching the portrait! I was quite mad at myself and I thought a lot of Paola during my train trip (which is really weird when you're sitting in a train, thinking about Queen Paola).

But thanks for the recaps, Marengo and Catherine. Now it feels like I've seen at least a little bit of it. :)

Thank you Hannelone, Cathérine and Marengo for your great informative Posts.
Queen Paola was and is a very pretty lady but is even more beautiful in her inside. I like the fact she is shy, I always felt more tenderness for shy people.
She is very human too. :)

I agreed with you... Our Queen Paola is a shy but also a reserved person like the Princess Caroline of Hanover. That's why I love shy persons but lots of tenderness and really heartfully person!

And ..... HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our King Albert II

Since I'm young I'm ever very found of Princess Poala, now Queen Paola. I ever found she has the discreat elegancy of the true high aristocracy and more she was/is a very beautiful and genuine woman; I remenber me her tremandous look when she was a young italian Princess just arriving from her roman residence to live in Bruxelles: a tremadous schok of civilisations!

It's true that it's was difficult ten years ago to think that Paola and Albert can give the image of an happy couple, but today they do, in a very convincely way.
May be it's a lesson for many people because now, generally speeking the life is more longer and if they have the heart 's intelligency they can find themselves after a difficult period in their life.
This point of view it's not totally theorical and it's very comforting.

Smile The Queen Paolo interview

Catherine and Marengo, thank you for the recap on the interview. Could someone tell me if this was an arranged marriage? I ask because I've read a few times that Paola said she didn't know anything about King Albert when they met. Or am I remembering incorrectly?! Was she a princess before they met? How did the courtship come about? Thanks in advance.

What is the Doudou feast? Is that the reason Di Rupo is dressed in a pullover with sneakers?

I think the king still hears without his HA but only not very good, and for him it is very important to understand the people very good.
Thank you, Elisabetteke! :)
Sorry I couldn't answer before but I was "grounded".
On the other hand, it may be a good idea for a king to say:"Sorry, I can't hear you." when he's been asked a question he doesn't want to answer.
Take care!

I read something in a dutch online newspaper today, that the King and Queen visited the mother of 2 girls who recently went missing in Liege, just after they said goodbye to the dutch Queen. Does any belgian poster have more info on this? I must say I am impressed by such a signal of the royal couple.

That’s right. Paola and Albert met in Liege with Catherine Dizier, mother of the missing Nathalie. They encouraged her not to lose hope. Catherine Dizier handed out posters with a search call to Beatrix´s entourage too. It´s a bad situation and the visit in Liege had for sure a bitter taste.
Nathalie (10) and Staxy (7) are missing since ten days and despite most intensive searching, there is still no hint where they are. I dearly hope they are alive and will be found soon.

Belgian King Albert II and Queen Paola's wreath on the hearse during the funeral of litle Nathalie Mahy (10), at the Saint-Gilles church in Cointe, Liege, Saturday 01 July 2006.
Around 250 people attended the funeral procession as the parents asked for a private ceremony. Stacy Lemmens (7) and Nathalie Mahy (10) were kidnapped in Liege three weeks ago. The girls' bodies were found on 28 June 2006 during police searches along a railway near de rue Vivegnis in Liege.

According to Joris (on BRMB), King Albert himself is present at the funeral in Liege (which explain why he didn't attend the Luxembourg Wedding Anniv.)

The King and Queen are especially concerned about these kidnappings & aren't afraid to take a public stand. I remember them inviting the parents of Dutroux victims at the Palace a few years ago. I believe to remind that they were very touched by the kindness of the royal couple and their willingness to try to help them where they could.

One again, King Albert & Queen Paola sent wreath for the funeral of Stacy Lemmens.
Quote:
20060703 - LIEGE, BELGIUM : Hearse with flowers pictured as the coffin of 7-year-old Stacy Lemmens is carried outside the funerarium, Monday 03 July 2006 for her funeral ceremony at the Sainte-Foy church in Liege. Stacy Lemmens (7) and Nathalie Mahy (10) were kidnapped in Liege 3 weeks ago. Their bodies were found strangled on 28 June 2006 at a stormwater drain in a tangled patch of weeds along a railway near de rue Vivegnis in Liege, not far from where the girls were kidnapped.
