I think I'll go out on a limb and say that I like Mathilde's outfit. Also with the hat. :)

The other ladies looked beautiful as well. I completely agree that Astrid looks better as she gets older.

As for the men, well that's a completely different story. Just kidding . I think it's highly unlikely that they can go wrong with their wardrobe when they attend official events. :)

Thanks to everyone who posted the pictures, they're absolutely wonderful.

As it was said in the first post by Cathérine, the King and Queen don't celebrate themselves, so that's why they weren't there.

here are some more from Fotomarktplatz. I still don't like the hat and jacket, but the colors do look good on her.

what about the King and Queen? Were Albert and Paola present at one of the Te Deums in Belgium, or only the members we saw above on the pictures.?

It looks like Claire also has been shopping at Natan:p He must make alot of money....the bag that Mathilde and Maxima has in all sorts of color and another tweed jacket in the same fabric as Maximas, a little different cut though. She looks very elegant again:)

Like the black and white outfit much better than the tweed. I know tweed is "in" this year, but I think it can be overdone (i.e. Maxima or the coat AND hat combo). I'd like to see that tweed jacket with a relaxed turtleneck and jeans on M. Does she ever wear jeans? I don't think I've seen any pictures of her relaxing!

There are pictures of Mathilde in jeans during her free time (cycling with Philippe, with Elisabeth in the garden, visiting Claire in hospital at the birth of Louise), but not so many, her private life should be private after all.
