I totally forgot it is National Day today ! I was about to leave for the library when I thought I’d first quickly check the forum. Now I realize that nothing will be opened. See what the Royal Forums can do for you ! :)
More on topic : Mathilde looks indeed fabulous. I wish more young Belgian women discovered her, the royal family would be much more popular.

The first pics from today. Mathilde looks really radiant and happy – and Elisabeth a little bit bored but very sweet. (ppe)

OK guys I just watched the news. Albert, Paola, Fabiola, Mathilde, Filip & Elisabeth were shown attending the Te deum in Brussels.

Mathilde wore an orange-red dress, very stylish and chic with a Fabienne Delvigne hat. It's a pink hat, wrapped around the head, very stylish and not conventional, so it'll probably get some comments here but I love it!!!!

Elisabeth wore a pink (fuchsia) dress with a bolera jacket in the same colour. She was very good during themass, only yawning now and then :) but Mathilde was chatting with her etc.

Afterwards she went to shake hands with the crowd, took flowers and waved at the public like a pro, all on her daddy's arm. The public was impressed.

King Albert reveiled a plaque at the St Jacques op Koudenberg church where ,today exactly 175 years ago, Leopold I swore the oath as first king of the Belgians. This is also the church where Albert was baptized BTW. It was a relaxed ceremony, with a very good humoured king.

What a perfect Queen-to-be.

Thank you all for sharing the pictures and news, Johann and Hannelore. I like Princess Mathilde headpiece in some pictures, in others not so much. And I love the dress, the colour, the cut everything :).

Great picture, full of Love and Harmony.

I am not a fan of the dress/hat combination of mathilde's. Bright orange and pale pink/beige are not a good colour match. She would have been better off going with a pink like elisabeth's dress

Yes, it´s too bad there isn´t a picture of the backside yet. It´s beautiful: low-cut with a knot. But you can admire it (and the very professional Elisabeth and her proud grandparents) online!
Follow this link http://www.vtm.be/nieuws/index_bekijkonline.htm
and go to "Vrijdag 21/07, 13u" and then click on breedband or modem, at about 4:35 min runtime you can see a report of the Te Deum.

I am happy to see Elisabeth act her age. It's hard for a child to stay still for long, but Elisabeth is a sweet, well-behaved child. I love the dresses of Elisabeth and the queen, but I don't care for Mathilde's dress. I guess the dress is a Nathan, because it reminds me of one the grand duchess would wear.
