I don't know if this qualifies as news, but the Final Jeopardy question today asked what two European monarchs share the same name and number.
Sadly, none of the contestants guessed correctly (One of them said Beatrix VII!)
Of course, the answer was Albert II.
:-D

Great news : you can now watch the Flemish program "Royalty" on line!!!

http://www.vtm.be/tv/index_programma...multimedia.htm

This is last week's program

In Bekijk deel 1:

1. New year's reception at the royal palace for the ambassadors and diplomats. You can see everone shakes hands, except the Iranian ambassador, who only nods at Mathilde and Paola, he is not allowed to touch women!

2. Philippe & Mathilde visit Crédal, followed by a visit to the carpter's workshop Apides

3. Prince Philippe visits the European motor show in Brussels. A day later prince Laurent is there as well. A funny part is where he tries to explain to the press that he's there to support Febiac, and not to open a stand. A reporter who seems to have understood it gets 3 kisses!

4. Remembrance mass for Joséphine-Charlotte in Brussels and in Luxemburg.

5. Foreign news : baptism of infanta Leonor.

Bekijk deel 2:

1. foreign news : prince William at Sandhurst

2. Short foreign news : queen Beatrix released from hospital, Prince Willem-Alexander vists the delta works with an American delegation, princess Ingrid Alexandra goes to kindergarten, new years wishes in Japan

3. royal protocol : how to address the members of the RF? Lots of funny images of people doing it wrong :)

WOW! What a fantastic link, Catherine. It adds so much to see videos where they interact with people and talk as opposed to the still photos where you have to imagine what goes on from photo to photo! Thanks so much.

Fantastic, photos! Thank you FanLetizia and Purple Platinum. I think her hair looks very attractive in these photos; she looks very polished.

Princess Mathilde looks lovely! Her hair looks great, that's a very stylish thing they've done to it, she really looks very refined and elegant in it.

Great to see Margot Wallström, Vice President of the European Commission and the Commissioner for Institutional Relations and Communication, at the Royal Palace!
