Well, it must have been a difficult balance between family privacy and the publicity statement.


Here are better pics from today, without watermarks:

Thanks for the photos, I liked seeing the family reunited :)
It seems to me that Prince Laurent is getting thinner... no?

Louise is beginning to look very much like her mother, Princess Claire!

Yes fancatt...it does appear as if Laurent is slimming down!

I really wonder why Princess Claire's parents viz. Princess Louise's maternal grandparents Nicole and Nicholas Coombs didn't attend the First Communion...Their house is even located near the St. Catherine Church of Bonlez as a reader of the blog "L'actualité des royautés" mentioned in his comment: L'actualité des royautés

Louise stole the show ; no word of the other children doing their first Communion. I know people living in Bonlez who came to see the King !.
L' abbé Gilbert is always there when he can be seen on TV.

The Princess didn't wear white or a veil?

In Catholic Ireland all girls making their First Holy Communions wear a white dress & veil .

Maybe the tradition differs in other countries?

I am very happy to see the entire family and my favorite queen Fabiola of Belgium, I liked her very much in the years 60 70 , she is yet my favorite member of the royal family of Belgium. I like this family and also the couple Philippe and Mathilde and their lovely children but I remembered when King Baudoin and Queen Fabiola was married and I hoped so much they have children. Now Queen Fabiola is 83 and I like her yet and I wish to see her many times, she is a lovely old lady and I like these meeting where we can see all the family.

That's quite understandable, melina premiere! I think a large number of people in and outside
Belgium feel and felt that way!


Here are two additional picture galleries from Tuesday without watermarks:
