Maybe the Belgian princes who have all found worthy wives will impart some wisdom on our fair prince of Monaco

I think it's great that HSH Prince Albert is comming to Belgium, I live about 5 minutes from the Belgium Border and just little over an hour from Oostende.
Just my luck, our car needs work and we planned it for this wednesday....
I would have loved to see the Prince!
But I am deffinatly going to pay a visit to Oostende soon, can't wait to see the bust of HSH Princess Grace!!! Isn't is great that they are doing this?

That is not a rumor luckily, just an poster at a neigbouring board with a creative mind, some wishful thinking at best (like I used to hope my CP would end up with Infanta Cristina ).

Anyway, I believe Prince Albert left Belgium by now, a pity that there weren't pictures of the dinner or anything comparable. I would have liked to see Mathilde in gala again, I wonder if the jewels she used at the 40th birthday of the Prince of Orange are actually hers (and she didn't have an opportunity to wear them afterwards).
