Thanks a lot for all those interesting additions, Lina RdC!


Today, June 1st, Queen Paola handed out the diplomas of the Queen Paola 2010-2011 prize in Brussels.
The prize is annually given to a teacher or a group of teachers, honours their creativity and their devotion.
It is a way of awarding them for concrete and original education achievements.

I don't understrand why the Queen is going alone and never ask the Crown Princess to share the event.
Yes, Missing Children/Child Focus is a very important project indeed but I do believe that Crown Princess Mathilde is involved in it viz. supports Queen Paola's dedication (apparently even jointly with the other two Belgian Princesses Astrid and Claire -remember their presence at the major conference "Vulnerable children on the run, a challenge for Europe" back in November 2010). Admittedly, I have no idea how much additional impact Mathilde would effectuate in case she accompanied Paola to minor events in Belgium and/or abroad which relate to Missing Children/Child Focus. Perhaps you -as a Belgian- can estimate this issue more accurately...

Complementing this lovely pictorial coverage on Queen Paola's presence at the 54th Venice Biennale, here is an article in Dutch: Cobra.be: Koningin Paola met Jan Hoet op Biënnale Venetië
On June 21, 2011 the queen was guided through the Belgian pavilion by the artist Angel Vergara (who displays seven large screens representing the deadly sins). Paola also visited the Biennale's central exhibition "Illuminations" in company with the curator Curiger.

I thought to see a smiling Queen in Italy but on pic 2 she shows how the event seems boring. In Belgium we know and also the press that the Queen has bad days (royal visit in India)
To Linda Rdc :
I should like to see more Queen and Crown princess to-gether.
They are wonderful pictures of Queen Fabiola and the Crown Princess, they love each other.

On July 7, 2011 Queen Paola visited the exhibition "Young Belgian Painters Award 2011" at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels:
http://www.nieuwsblad.be/article/det...MF20110707_114 (photo gallery)
The "Prix de la Jeune Peinture Belge" (Young Belgian Painters Award) is a collaboration between the association "Jeune Peinture Belge" (which has worked for over half a century for young visual artists in the country) and the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels.

No "gongs" for anybody....

For the second time in a year, King Albert refuses to ennoble anyone.
This could be partially to do with "la crise", and /or he is not happy with there still not being a Government.

Portugal and Spain talk about the dedication of Queen Paola to the decoration of the palace :)

Thank you for those two press reports, fancatt! The "Hola"-article has obviously been written based on this longer article from "Het Nieuwsblad": Het Nieuwsblad - Koningin Paola hielp Paleis grondig renoveren
Queen Paola -as the major driving force behind the redesign- had a considerable influence on this most extensive renovation of the Royal Palace during the past 40 years. According to Kathy Pauwels, she envisages a palace which is evolving over time and King Albert -giving his wife plenty of rope- has even joked with an artist from the MAS in Antwerp saying that (in a sense) the latter knows her better than he himself.

According to the Le Soir blog "Rue Royale", neither Laurent nor Claire are allowed to take part in the National Day celebrations, e.g. Te Deum, military parade etc.
