Today prince Philippe and princess Mathilde and the 3 children (together with the king, queen, Astrid & Lorenz and their children) brought a visit to the pope.

I haven't found any photos yet, but here's a video of them, you can see Mathilde carrying Emmanuel, and in the end also Elisabeth (in white very cute) & Gabriel

I'm very happy mr.Nagant de Deuxchaisnes will leave his post. Since the two years that he is communication advisor, too much things have gone wrong.
Let's hope we can be optimistic towards the future.

Thanks for the video link, Catherine. How lovely to see everyone again -- I have been missing photos of them.

1. OMG, Gabriel looked so cute all serious in black:p Phillippe and Amedeo as handsome as always and Mathilde and Astrid looked great
2. Why weren't Laurent and Claire with Louise or even the twins there?

And it's unlike Queen Fabiola to miss something like this. I wonder why she didn't go.

Unhappy Visit to the Pope

I have seen them on tv. Claire and Laurent were not present.What is wrong with their family (and especially the twins) for them not to be present at such an event that doesn't occur every day ...

I like to give to everyone who is putting effort in this thread, with pictures, video's and other reply's, my greatest thanks and sympathy's... often I pass around in this thread to keep up with the walkabouts of the Belgian royal family. As it is, I'm not much of a participiant in this forum, because I'm more of an observer then a speaker...But this doesn't mean that I don't appriciate the contributions of all members to this forum... So thanks very, very much for all the work and the energy ! Peace :) :) :)

I just saw a wonderful (and long) report on Place Royale of the visit the RF made to the pope on 1st of April. It was really wonderful, especially to get a good view of prince Emmanuel, who's 6 months now and has grown a lot.

Gabriel looked so beautiful, in a little smart suit and being very attentive about all that was going on around him.

The conversation was in French. The king presented everybody to the pope, telling him Elisabeth, Gabriel and Emmanuel's name. Astrid & Lorenz were there with their 5 children who told their name theirselves (apart from Laetitia :)). The pope asked Amedeo what he was studying. he said: management.

Pope Benedict gave a rosery to everyone, Elisabeth started playing with it :)

What's remarkable and also very sweet is that the king also presented his bodyguard (who he called "our gardien angel") and the little princes' nannies to the pope, they looked like part of the family.

Thank you for that report, Catherine. And what a lovely gesture that the king would present people who, in practice, do form a significant part of the family. I'm sure that means alot to those workers and only enhances their respect and hard work for their "principals".
