Poor King. He looks exhausted. Difficult years about our gouvernement are just finished and now this... They are like us, so schoked...

Even today, on Christmas Day, there are even more problems for Belgium - not just the huge work undertaken to to form a government - but the aftermath of the drama at Liège - and now - the Belgian Congo is causing trouble again.....

Thanks a lot for sharing -this photo composition looks simply fabulous! Do you own any christmas cards from the previous years?
The location of King Albert and Queen Paola in a forest could symbolize their rich genealogical "harvest" viz. ever growing family tree.

picture 5 captures a lovely moment -Queen Paola must have looked fairly cute to her husband when she was wearing that hoody jacket .
Here is a recent article -including a short video- on how King Albert's official activities among his subjects as well as his foreign commitments have been decreasing: Koning Albert komt niet meer buiten - Het Nieuwsblad
A royalty watcher, Wim Dehandschutter, compared the monarch's agenda to those of Queen Beatrix, King Carl Gustaf, Queen Elizabeth, King Harald and King Juan Carlos reporting that they are 3-4 times more often among the people. But Dehandschutter complements this result by underscoring King Albert's peculiar role in dealing with Belgium's extremely difficult domestic political situation.

On January 26, 2012 Queen Paola visited two projects in Mons that provide job trainings for adults and child care for those children whose parents take part in the trainings. Both are supported by the Foundation Queen Paola: Paola naar de bakker, Filip en Mathilde naar concert - Het Nieuwsblad

On February 1st, 2012 Queen Paola visited the "Heldenhuis" (The House of Heroes) in Halle, a large multifunctional house with a garden. Dozens of children or young people can find a shelter and the opportunity to take training, have time to relax through games and sports, find assistance and support:
