I like the way princess Claire looks.

I do have a question, in past celebrations, do Princess Astrid's children participate? I didn't see any pictures of them, so i am not sure if children were ever invited. Thanks in advance!

No, the children don't participate in the king's feast. Plus they had to go to school...

It is normally about this time or end of November, i believe. I wonder if we'd see Queen Fabiola attends the event again. We have not seen her in a while already.

Wikipedia: King´s Feast
The King's Feast (Dutch: Koningsfeest, French: Fête du Roi) is celebrated in Belgium on November 15, since 1866. On this day, since 2001, the Belgian Federal Parliament holds a ceremony in honour of the King, in the presence of members of the Belgian Royal Family and dignitaries. Federal ministries are closed on this day. Traditionally, a Te Deum is sung on this day as well as a private occasion.
The entire wikipedia entry can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King's_Feast

Here some pictures of earlier years:

Kings Day 2004
Kings Day 2003

They celebrate the monarch each year on November 15th, which is St. Leopold's Day. First a Te Deum in the SS Goedele and Michiels cathedral in Brussels and after that the RF visits the senate. The King and Queen are absent as they won't go celebrating themselves (always so modest, those Belgians )

Nice to see Queen Fabiola again! Mathilde's coat and hat look rather odd, especially considering that it almost has the same colour as the cathedral so she somewhat disappears in the background. Princess Claire however looks very nice.
