King Albert and Queen Paola where photographed by Olivier Pollet for the magazine Paris Match. It shows exclusive pictures of the king and queen in France.

A very intimate and heartwarming picture you can see here.

Thank you very much for posting that beautiful and sweet cover of "Paris Match", stephanievl!
Unfortunately, I don't own a copy of the magazine viz. the article in question fancatt, but I've discovered one rather large picture gallery at newscom: Newscom - Multimedia for Websites and Publishers
In case this link doesn't lead you directly to the photos, just enter "Albert Paola Valbonne 2011" as searching keywords.

Thanks for the nice photo coverage, iceflower!
Queen Paola truly deserves this honour due to her very passionate dedication to all those youth-related issues i.m.o. -even more because Non-Belgians are comparatively scarcely informed about suchlike matters by their respective press, I think. By contrast, you can hear viz. read quite a lot concerning Queen Silvia of Sweden's or Queen Rania of Jordan's commitment in similar domains...
Anyway, here is a pretty survey of all Princess/Queen Paola stamps which have been released until now: Royalement Blog: La reine Paola en philatélie
Several better pictures: 1. la reine Paola | Soirmag.be 2. le roi Albert II et la reine Paola | Soirmag.be 3. Drottning Paola – nu även som frimärke | Svensk Damtidning (your 1st picture without watermarks)

You're most welcome, iceflower! Which stamps are your favourites? As for me, I prefer that lovesome one with the young princely family sitting on a sofa as well as the newly published stamp. Its motive looks marvellous since it decently alludes to several traits distinguishing Queen Paola's personality: she is -inter alia- exquisitely affectionate, devoted, dynamic and open-minded, I would say...

Just a curious question: does anybody know if the queen is capable of reading Braille? Further picture galleries: APA-PictureDesk (October 11); IBL Bildbyrå - Nytt/Features (October 6); IBL Bildbyrå - Nytt/Features (October 11)
