Yes - he's still on an economic mission to China. CP Philippe and CP Mathilde had started the mission
on October 20, Mathilde returned earlier as planned and Philippe will be back on October 29/30


Here's an additional gallery of the concert:

Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde will not attend the Christmas concert. They will go to Liege to sign the condolence register and visit the victims in the hospital.

Earlier was confirmed that Prince Laurent and princess Claire will not attend.

How difficult to attend a christmas concert, that was supposed to be a joyful event, just one
day after the tragedy of Liege..

A few more pictures: Photo from Reuters Pictures; Photo from Reuters Pictures; Photo from Reuters Pictures; http://news.daylife.com/photo/02d50q...cember+14+2011; Photo from Reuters Pictures Before this year's christmas concert began, the whole audience observed a minute of silence for the victims of that gun and grenade attack in central Liège.

Does anybody know why Queen Fabiola wasn't present as usual? I hope she is doing well...

Is any member of royal family member of Council of state? Or is it possible to be a member of this institution?
