Do I see it well? It looks if Queen Fabiola and Princess Astrid have the same handbag with them.
And has Queen Paola no handbag with her? I almost can't imagine that she has not.

As posted by Catherine on the Benelux Royals MB:

Quote:
Queen Paola and princess Astrid were present at the Saints Michel et Gudule cathedral in Brussels, for the opening of the exhibition "septiformis - ars in cathedrali".
The exhibition is a gift of the Belgian bishops for 75th birthday of cardinal Godfried Danneels. 7 artists made a piece inspired by a social issue.

PS Astrid's coat = Dries van Noten
Some pictures:

Anyone knows in whose honour the concert was? I recognized some of our Olympic athletes. Did it have anything to do with them?

I just don't understand why her hair doesn't seem to be thinning with age...I am several decades younger and my hair is not nearly as thick!

Her hair seems even thicker now than it was when she was a young woman!

Claire's hairstyle is wonderful, but Laurent should REALLY consider going on a diet for the sake of his health. He has about three chins!

The 'Automn Concert', at the Royal Palace in Brussels,
I think the "theme" was sport since there where a lot of belgian athlethes and Jaques Rogge.

I read in Paris Match that Philippe and Mathilde were on holiday with their 4 children.

It's called a wig, I believe...

Though truth to be told, she just has a whole lot of hair, and the way it's styled also gives the impression that her hair isn't thinning. But I swear, sometimes she wears a wig.

LOL! Well that makes me feel a LITTLE better..if it is a wig it is well styled enough not to look like one..Fabiola's hairstylist was in a recenty "Royals" magazine and he said he comes to the palace DAILY to do her hair...and she does two or three things at once while having her hair done, always.

I only saw one photo of the queen with a hairpiece, one of the rare occasions when she changed her standard style. It was a formal evening engagement in the Sixties and it was sort of a chignon on top of her own hair. She was wearing the Wolfers Tiara and it looked stunning.

The King, Prince Laurent and Princess Claire paid tribute to Sister Emanuelle yesterday.
Pic 1 - Pic 2 - Pic 3 - Pic 4
(Belga)

Sister Emanuelle was known as the "rag picker of Cairo" (sorry, this is a horribly rough translation, "Voddenraapster van Cairo in Dutch"). She erected schools and medical centers in Cairo, where she lived among the rag pickers and in the same circumstances. Sister Emanuelle was born in 1908 and didn't live to see her 100th birthday: she died last October.
There was a Mass at the St Michel & St Gudule Cathedral in Brussels to commemorate her.

Didn't know where else to post this so here it oes: the VRT has refused to broadcast a radio commercial of HUMO that is making fun of the Royal Family. In the (IMO very lame) commercial a reporter is standing in the palace of Brussels, looking for people intelligent enough to read this weeks issue. He can not find any and Laurent and Philippe are playing hide & seek.

Lame. No other word.

On another note, the new Royal Warrants were issued today.
Among the new "Purveyors to the Royal Household" is the "dog hotel" where Queen Paola's dogs go when she is on a trip abroad.
Even more surprising is the granting of a Royal Warrant to the NMBS-SNCB (National Train company) Apparently, the King and Queen like to travel by train, and they are known to sometimes take the train incognito.

I'm sorry, but I nearly fell from my chair laughing when I heard that. Incognito? Yeah, right...

See here for article and clip in dutch (vrt).
