It can't be an easy job being King of the Belgians, but good wishes to Albert II for doing it so well.

I rember when Baudeouin died, many people thought that Albert would not be up to it - but he proved them wrong.

It will be nice to see the whole royal family together today! Although I am not sure that queen Fabiola will attend since she was yesterday in Spain for the festival but maybe she will come back one day to Belgium!

To day it is not the anniversary of king Albert on the throne, he was enthroned on August 9th1993, it is the anniversary of our dear king baudoin who would be 78 on 7th september and the town Motril in spain where he died gives a festival for him and queen Fabiola is there in Spain.

No , no body of the royal family celebrates the 15 years of king Albert because the anniversary was the late month. To day, Queen Fabiola attend to the festival of music given by the town Motril for the king Baudoin who would be 78 on 7th september .

I must admint that I never thought that Maria - Laura is the most beautiful young lady but today comparing her with her grandmum, mother and aunts she is the most stylish lady.
Paola too light hair and dress.
Claire nice gress but I don't know should be longer. Her legs looks big.
Astrid looks more like her mother.
Mathilde she is beautiful woman no matter if she is thin or have few extra kilos (after four babies it's normal).

Thanks stephanievl for the photos.
Where is Lorenz? Did we see all children/family?

Thanks you for all the pictures, stephanie!

It sure is lovely to see the whole family together again. I really love Claire's dress and it is nice to see Louise and Maria-Laura too. The latter really is turning into a true beauty!

It has been great to see the Belgian Royal family together. Female members of the royal family looked fabulous. I am curious why Crown Princely couple has not brought any of their children.
Special thanks to stephanievl for the photos!
