I love the new haircut of Queen Paola! Very fresh and modern. A pity that Queen Fabiola didn't attend.

It is nice to see King Albert and Queen Paola undertaking an engagement. Queen Fabiola's absence is not surprising.

I wonder why Fabiola wasn't there, is she sick or something?

I take it that Their Majesties have scaled back all their public appearances since the July Abdication.

We saw something terrible on the King's feast.(VTM)
The former King and the Queen greeted Princess Claire and when Laurent came from the other side of his car his parents already started their entre in the Cathedral without greeting their SON . Only Prince Lorenz gave him a shake hands.
This should never happen in other RF !

Astrid didn't greet her brother either?
I distinctly remember Philippe and Mathilde greeting both Laurent and Claire at these celebrations in past years

It is quite unfortunate that King Albert chose to demonstrate the bad blood in public.

You may see what happened on VTM Royalty and also inside the Church when Queen Paola had her hands in front of her and put her hands back of her when Laurent and Claire arrived at their seats.
Leidl , Philippe and Mathilde should never have done this ! and certainly in public !

I wonder when Albert and Paola finally realize they have very little time left to heal at least some of the wounds. At this point they are morally bankrupt imo.
Them not greeting Laurent isn't new though, it's been like this for years and their worst behaviour was attending the first communion of Laurent's daughter while ignoring Laurent.


Also it's off-putting to see the family behaving like this and the public is tired of this. It clearly is Philippe and Mathilde's wish to create the image of a united family - too bad that some family members can't go along with this and support the new head of family. It was Philippe's first kings day and this is certainly NOT the right manner to attend his celebration.

What is the Belgian RF's problem with Prince Laurent? Did he do something to put the family to shame? I also read somewhere here only that he sides with that Boel woman..Please tell me briefly..
And whatever it is, I am sure showing bad blood is not at all the way to behave in public. They may even skip the event, but these reverse-PDAs are disastrous for any RF in PR point of view..
