King's Feast - 2008

The entire royal family is invited to the "King's Feasts" tomorrow at the Belgian Senate. 15 November is officially the day on which the Royal Family is celebrated.

This year the Feast is in honour of King Albert II's 15 year reign. They will also honour his late brother, King Baudouin.

Link to the site of the Belgian Senate in Dutch and French

The royal family first attended Holy Mass at the St Michel & St Gudule Cathedral, the so called "Te Deum", in honour of the King.
Mass was read by Cardinal Danneels. All important politicians were there too, but honestly, they seemed to be bored

Queen Fabiola looked remarkably well this morning, in royal blue as often. Princess Mathilde still seems to be in mourning...

Lovely photos! Was Princess Astrid and her family in attendance? I thought Mathilde looked lovely. Claire seemed a bit casually-dressed for this event, IMO.

Pics of the ceremony in Parliament & Senate (Belga)

Some clips of the festivities (in Dutch) and an article here.

The fact that the King attended the Te Deum Mass was exceptional. Normally he doesn't attend the Mass because it is held in his honour.

In his speech in Parliament, Prime Minister Leterme called the King " the cement of the nation" and " a factor of cohesion".

She had the flu so she was forced to stay home at the Belvedere.
