Nice pictures, I must say that Queen Paola and Crown Prince Philippe both looked very dashing! She looked very warm and shining today, and he dashing in that suit.

Question: As far as I can see, some of the officials that were guests at the palace are standing in a receiving line in some of the pictures, shaking hands with the royals as they walk in. Why is this? Normally it's the hosts that greets the guests in a receiving line...

With these official receptions, things go according to protocole. The most important guest guets greeted first. First came archbishop Danneels (an archbishop equals the rank of prince), then the presidents of parliament, then the prime minister, the the vice prime minister etc.

Thank you for answering, Cathérine - but I don't think I have put my question clear enough. I was wondering why the guests are standing in a receiving line, shaking hands with the royals as they walk in? The normal procedure is that the hosts greet the guests in a receiving line (the royals lining up, then the guests enter and shake their hands on their way into the room. Sometimes the honorary guests are in the receiving line too)... Perhaps it's just me, but this strikes me as a bit odd. This was in the Royal Palace, right? And the Royal Family were the hosts? Hmm... Does anyone understand what I'm babbling about? :)

Belgium was founded in 1830, so this year it celebrates it's 175th birthday, and the fact that it's been a federal state for 25 years. This whole year there will be special festivities and exhibitions in Belgium. The king and queen officially opened the 175-25 festivities on 17th February 2005.
