More of their arrival today.

Mathilde was in red all day, well it is her favorite color after all She was very elegant, I saw her on the news, walking on that carpet, and she's got an unbelievable natural grace!

Mrs. Kwasniewski is very elegant too...Maybe it's a Polish thing? :)

Thanks for all the great pictures Hannelore and Catherine.

Mathilde looks great at the welcome banquet. I love that garnet colour on her -- though hard to think of a colour that wouldn't look lovely on Mathilde!

Were Laurent and Claire present? I noticed Astrid and Lorentz in one of the pictures.

Queen Paola and Poland's First Lady Jolanta Kwasniewska pay a visit to Child Focus. Child Focus is a fairly recent center for missing and abused children. The king and queen have always been very concerned about this issue, and Paola takes nearly all her foreign guests to visit this center.
