Belgium's Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt, King Albert II, Parliament President Herman De Croo and officials receive a birthday cake during a show in downtown Brussels July 21, 2005. Belgium is celebrating its 175th anniversary of independence and the 25th anniversary of federalism in the country today.

Thanks for all of the wonderful photos!

"And Astrid looked fantastic at the concert last night - hard to believe this woman has five children! And I agree with all the comments on the clothes -- what I enjoy most about the royal women is the intention and competence they bring to their jobs, the clothes are icing on the cake and recycling them is great; less wasteful. That said, I do enjoy looking at the clothes they wear - and especially this bunch of classy women."

Well said. They are a great bunch and they economize well too.

According to the palace, Claire had little complications in her pregnancy, nothing nedding to bring her at hospital, but Laurent wished to stay with her. It's something that happens when expecting twins.

About 175.000 people came to Brussels yesterday to celebrate (or just walk around and relax :) - I think there's always a wonderful atmosphere in Brussels on the 21st of July). 60.000 watched the fireworks that ended the day.

In the evening there was a wonderful show with Belgian artists, where also members of the RF were present (king Albert and queen Paola, and I think I saw Philippe as well). It was a great show but then it startes raining really heavily (the so called "drache nationale" that's also tradition on the national day :)) and the second part of the show was cancelled.

Anyway it was a beautiful day and I'm so happy we got to see Elisabeth, Gabriel and Laetitia!

Thanks
