Oh that's not true, you've got a great range of clothes for pregnant women nowadays (even if they're expecting triplets ), and she's got certainly enough money to afford it. Couturiers don't stop making clothes for you when you're pregnant either...

No don't get mad at me, I just don't think her trousers were doing her any favour.
And expecting twins can be physically more tiring but it isn't as though it's like going through hell (if all goes well that is). I've been pregnant twice and apart from the sickness in the beginning it's just really a wonderfull experience that women are priviledged to live.

You're right... I'm sure we'll see Claire in magnificient gala clothes in a few time...;

You have pregnant twice with twins? I'd love to have twins... Wasn't it too hard when they grow up?

No no I've never had twins. Having twins twice would be a bit much for me :) But back to Claire...

Princess Louise and Princes Nicolas and Aymeric - News and Pictures 1

In my newspaper ( Het Belang van Limburg) was written today :

Princess Claire and Prince Laurent want to show their twins , Nicolas and Aymeric , who were born 6 weeks earlier then expect .They want to show them very soon , so everybody can see there's nothing wrong with the boys , who are healthy and doing fine.
Laurent told wednesday that Claire had give her permission .
" We understand that people want to see our boys , but we had a difficult time , and we want to keep our misery inside the family "

So we can expect any day now the FIRST pictures of twinboys , Nicolas and Aymeric !:)

The twins were premature, so naturally Laurent and Claire must have been worried. They should have been in the womb six more weeks. They were underweight so if they had taken pictures right away, there would have been a lot of "they're not heavy enough, maybe they're not fed enough" etc. which is completely ridiculous but you know tabloids. IMO Claire and Laurent just waited until the twins gained weight and were more in the normal range. I'm sure Claire and Laurent also wanted to spend time with Nicolas and Amyeric and Louise before exposing the boys to the press.

The other thing is if they had released pictures to the press, those pictures may have been repeated and they would have been reminded always that there boys were so small when they were born. Also with premie's it is possible that they had breathing and eating problems which might have been reflected in the pictures.

Even if the boys were healthy right from birth, there is a certain amount of anxiety associated with premature births. It IS very stressful (and I know from first hand experience) and I can completely understand why they have waited until their family was settled and the boys were thriving before presenting them to the media.

Sometimes preemies are unattractive, as they are very small and wizened. They fill out and they look fine. It is difficult for parents to think that others would think their children are "ugly". It all evens out. They will look fine. It must be hard druing those times for the parents. I assume that is what she meant.

First see, then believe...
I'm very ready with them since they don't react to cards and such...
Ofcourse the little ones can't help that, but Laurent and Claire are not my favourites...

I completely understand Claire and Laurent's reaction. Having twins is very stressful and is giving more "trouble" than having a single kind. I just suppose the babies are now fine.
Furthermore, the belgian RF is setting a photo-session every year in May or June, so I guess we'll see all the babies soon.

Please do not turn this new thread into a continuous one on Nicolas & Aymeric's looks.
Thank you.

Laurent and Claire did the right thing by keeping their babies out of the spotlight since they were prem babies. Having had a prem baby myself, I can just imagine what they were going through. Nevertheless I am looking forward to seeing pics of the twins.
