Thursday 23 September 2004, King Albert II and Interior Minister Patrick Dewael visit the Communication and Information Center for East-Flanders (CIC) in Gent, where the "Astrid" communications system is being set up.
Members of the Belgian RF (and other royal families) were present in Rome today for the beatification of emperor Karl of Austria-Hungary. He was the grandfather of archduke Lorenz, husband of princess Astrid of Belgium.
i didn't see Queen Paola on the pics :s but it's a bit of a suprise to me that Lea Wohlman was there...I like her though, but you don't see her that much with other members of the royal family (except for Prince Alexandre (obviously) and Prince Laurent)
