At the German TV boulevard magazine "leuteheute" was a report today about the mass. And if my eyes were right, I saw in the second row either Princess Esmeralda of Belgium or Princess Margarethe of Luxemburg, Princess of Liechtenstein. I tried to post a link about this report, but I haven't found one. Can someone identify who I mean, if someone also have seen the report?

I believe princess Marie-Astrid was also escorted by a son and a daughter.

Prince Léa seemed moved. Nice that her children were with her and that princess Esmeralda was able to attend too!

The Queen looked very elegant today.

Cool

Archduchess Marie-Astrid's daughter Marie Christine attended without her husband and a son attended, but I have forgotten his name, I apologize. Princess Lea did appear very moved and I can understand because she and her family are really still grieving.

That's a nice dark blue dress the Queen was wearing at yesterday's reception -especially with those vertical stripes. And she looks at least a bit more relaxed than the day before at the mass where she seemed to be rather stressed (as compared to the princesses Astrid, Mathilde and Claire)...

Thanks for photos!
Based on the photos, it is obvious that the Belgian royal family and representatives of the EU enjoyed the reception. The Belgian royals masterfully add a touch of informality to receptions, which facilitates a friendly communication and allows both parties to be comfortable as well as have memorable experience.

I always thought, that royals had to be political neutral. But now I saw pictures of the Belgium Royal Family voting. Are they allowed to do it?

They are oblidged to. If they don't vote they will be fined just like the rest of the country. I am not sure about the king and queen though.

Maybe prince Amedeo gave permission to someone else to vote for him (if you have a good reason like you are staying in another country and you can not come to Belgium, or if you are in the hospital,... you can do that) or he voted by mail (you sent your letter with your vote with the post).
I think he did that and than he won't get a fine.

The king and queen are the only members of the royal family who do not vote because as head of state the king is assumed to be neutral and superior to the politicians.
