Prince Laurent was expected to have a conversation with the Premier Ministre, M Charles Michel. (He has a problem with the Government for -once again- breaking the rules. The Goverment wants to impose a financial sanction on the Prince).

Prince Laurent excused himself for that conversation because of "illness". So he was wise to remain at home indeed, and not appear in public.

I think Queen Paola looks very frail.

Do the Royal children not attend King's Feast Mass?

They have school. The Fête du Roi is no holiday like the Fête Nationale on the 21st of July.

Thank you Duc.

I always love to see Philippe and Mathilde's immaculately raised children, but there is no way they should miss school.

In my option the Princes and Princesses could join, but anti-royalist (social) media is never far away in Belgium: immediately there would be moaning about "the privileges of these Coburgs".

Albert looks really fragile, Astrid had to help him climb up and down the stairs of the Cathedral.

There was a kinda awkward moment inside of the church, where Albert was looking at Laurent, the latter ignored him but Claire greeted her father-in-law warmly.

It's weird: Laurent can't stand his parents but he doesn't take his wife and children away from them, maybe it's his way to be kinda selfless in a way?

I think Paola didn't go because climbing those stairs might have been a bit too much for her at this stage after her minor stroke, at that age, mobility is a massive issue, specially after brain issues.

They may enter the Cathedral by a side door (without any steps . King Juan Carlos and Grand Duke jean did it for Queen Fabiola's Funerals.
Queen Paola did not like to come !
King Albert II was smiling ,the best to do.

It's nice to see Claire and Laurent attending, despite all the problems and the polemics....it is still a form of respect towards their respective brother and brother-in-law.
