personally I think it would be better for all concerned if Albert and Paola just disapeared into retirement to enjoy their remaining years out of the public eye and Let King Phillipe and Queen Mathilde continue to rebuild the image of the Belgian Monarchy.

Leidl , Philippe and Mathilde should never have done this ! and certainly in public !
They are such sad people tbh, Philippe has never jugded his brother the way their parents had and he hasn't made the mistakes they did!!

The video is here:

Horrible attitude IMO, Albert and Paola don't seem to be wanting to help their son in the first part of his reign, I am not saying they should be kissing all their children all the time but some kind of recognition would be good!

The annual King's Feast is celebrated today, November 15.


Queen Paola, Princess Astrid, Prince Lorenz and Princess Claire attended the Te Deum mass at the Saint Michael and St Gudula Cathedral in Brussels.

Prince Laurent joined the family members at the celebrations at the federal parliament.

It is a shame that Queen Paola and Princess Astrid are not meeting the own dresscode and dropping standards. Luckily Princess Claire remembered how to dress properly for a very formal religious event in attendance of the religious, civil, military, diplomatic, justitial and aristocratic who-is-who in Belgium.

King Philippe is just in the very early stage of his Reign, you can not compare this to the mess Prince Laurent (and no one else) himself caused during his father's Reign. Wait a couple of years before you judge Albert vs Philippe. My big toe is sending me signals that it will not take long before Prince Laurent will cause another conflict and now with his brother.

What Prince Laurent did during his Father's reign is impossible during his Brother's Reign.
Au moindre faux pas , he will see his Dotation changed.
He has his 3 Children at the very expensive Lycée Français ....

If the who-is-who had to be there, no public outside ! It was raining and King Albert Ii was not present (surgery recoveries) .

In a couple of years Princess Elisabeth will be 18 years. She will have her own dotation as Duchesse de Brabant. Mark my words: the Parliament will again and again discuss the dotations of Prince Laurent and Princess Astrid. When the Parliament asks the Government to end the payment to Prince Laurent, we will see him again, mark my words.

The 'who-is-who' of course was in the Cathedral: the politicians, the judiciary, the military, the diplomats, other VIPS.

@ Laurent's dotation: Regardless of his behaviour there will be discussion anyway, year after year. The biggest Flemish party N-VA wants to abolish them for ex. And the public views these dotations for Astrid and Laurent as waste of money. It was one of Albert's biggest mistakes to talk the government into granting them. Dehaene, the prime minister back then already admitted it was a wrong decision.

Obviously there is no reconciliation between Laurent and Paola.

Thanks all for the photos. How nice to see again the Kings. And what weather. I imagine like maria-olivia say many people because of the weather and of course the recent events preferred to stay in their homes.

It was surely better that you've stayed at home, maria-olivia, and I cross my fingers that you'll soon get another chance of seeing them!

Here are two extra galleries of the parliament event later today:

Apparently not. But at least Laurent this time will attend; IIRC last year he didn't.
