Voila, here are the pics: Albert and Paola meeting Belgians, who received a peerage in 2005. This reception was held at LaekenCastle on Thursday (Oct. 12). (casadaimagem)

This is Paola admiring Salvatore Adamo´s coat of arms. Adamo wrote the famous song “Dolce Paola” back in the sixties.

Queen Paola visited the “Royal Institute for deaf and blind persons” in Uccle today (Oct. 24). She went there to see the play “Emilie Jolie” given by the “Compagnie de la Taupinière”. The actors are pupils and alumni of the Institute and they studied this play from Philip Chatel two years. They surely felt honoured to have Queen Paola in the audience. (casadaimagem/isopix)

Since my youth I had been very impressive bey the beauty of Poala.

It's a little bit funny because I allways said Paola but now she is Queen of Belgium since more ten years I have some difficulties to speak about her by her surmane.

She is doing a good job as a Queen, may be that nobody are going to think that she is abble to do it.

That I don't know very well is the intensitiy of the links of her children and thethe their husband/wifes.

And is she a very involve Grand Mother as the Queen of Spain for example?

The Queen is looking very good IMO, he seems to have lost some weight to. She still is a great beauty IMO, and looks much better then a certain botoxed first lady who sat next to her during the meeting (and I do not mean Madame Chirac).

Has Paola always been involved in this cause or only since she became Queen?

Municipality of Mortsel to remove portraits of the King and Queen

The municipal council in Mortsel (near Antwerp) has decided to remove the portraits of the King and Queen from the city hall.

Vlaams Belang fraction leader Mark Schampaert, following suit from a colleague Main reason: municipalities no longer fall under jurisdiction of the federal government but under the Flemish, Walloon and Brussels regional governments. Vlaams Belang (the biggest fraction) is a separatistic and anti-monarchistic party which dreams of an independent republic of Flanders.

The green party Groen! Abstained from voting and Vlaams Belang voted in favour. Votes of the other parties were divided. In the final vote 11 voted in favour, seven against, and nine abstained.

Ingrid Pira, the Mayor of Mortsel, has removed the portraits and decided to hang it in her own cabinet.

Out of curiosity, what parties voted against as well? Or has Vlaams Belang 11 votes?

Rather significant and emerging affair IMHO.
