19 SEPTEMBER 2003
Belgium's Princess Astrid is following in the footsteps of the late Princess of Wales by campaigning for the eradication landmines. The 41-year-old took time out during a tour of Cambodia to visit a landmine clearance programme in the heart of the war-ravaged country.

"There's still an enormous amount of work to be done all over the world, but especially in poor countries," said the princess. "It's so important that the donor countries and mine-affected ones all work together."

Earlier in the week she opened an international anti-landmine conference in Thailand. And she also gave the ordnance experts a hand by detonating a recently uncovered anti-tank rocket.

Meanwhile, back home in Belgium, her brother Prince Laurent was taking part in some rather more light-hearted activities. He and his wife Claire Coombs were guests of honour at a children's day in the town of Tervuren, where they wasted no time in joining in the fun.

The couple's day out came just a few weeks after they announced they're expecting their first child. The baby, who will be eleventh in line to the throne, is expected next February.

I find Princess Claire very beautiful especially when she does not smile because here lovely eyes and nose are well emphasized.Look at her previous pictures.She looks strict though when she does not smiles. :)

I don't normally comment on hair, unless it's a tiara event, but, I have to say this..
I LOVE Claire's hair in the recent photos!! It's extremely flattering and atractive on her. Great choice in cuts.

I remember reading that Laurent himself told reporters that it would be a baby girl and she would be called Louise.. Well, we'll find out pretty soon if that's the truth.:)

She looks lovely as always. :flower: Her outfit is quite similar to the one she wore to the Calabria baptism.
