I don't agree about her posture. When I see her on tv, I'm always struck by how elegant she is. These pics aren't the best quality, and yes, she could be standing in a strange way for a few seconds or so...you can't tell too much from a few pics.

I agree with Martha Louise, it's not yet the radiant Mathilde. The combination of the trousers, jacket and pulled back hair gives her a bit of a stern expression, and she looks tired too. So, a normal mother really :):)

Please give her a bit of time to get back to her normal shape. This is very normal, any mother can tell you.

Very nice that she was present too. She's become very intrested in Mali since she visited it at the beginning of this year, on a humanitarian Belgian mission and as Unicef representant. She already met the president back then, and had discussions with him.

She visited the country as a UN ambassadress for the year of micro credit, if I am correct?

I've seen her on tv very often. i guess she moves beautifully but her shoulders are always drooping forward.

I have this uncontrollable urge to reach out and quickly straighten them.

I think its because she is concentrating on what people tell her. Certainly when she's in Flanders, she doesn''t always understand everything. And she has never been that type of princess who is smiling all the time. When she's bored, she looks bored, when she's compassioned, she cries, when it's fun, she laughs. It's just her way of behaving i guess. I like that pureness

I don't know to much about her, but if she has the emotion to fit the occassion, then I respect that kind of honesty. She doesn't seem to be putting on an act - which is what I prefer! Mistakes and all, I prefer a princess/queen who is dignified but also not afraid to be herself.:)
