I think it is english at these sorts of events. its just documents that are written up in french. though of course since the coburgs are all french speakers they will opt for that first.

Thanks for all the photos. I agree that the Queen and Princess Mathilde look very elegant (but doesn't she always? ). I especially like the Princess' hair, very lovely.

I agree. her hair has been great recently. its so beautifully curled up in the back. i wish maxima would emulate her belgian counterpart in the hair department.

French used to be the diplomatic language worldwide in the 19th and early 20th century, but English has since long taken over that role. I suppose the members of the Belgian RF speak French to those who most easily speak French and English to the others.
