I'm sorry, it was on 19 may, in Florence; the same day when the entire Royal Family except Prince Laurent attended a lunch, maybe connected to the Queen Elisabeth Music Competition, if I remember correctly.

There must have been a legitimate reason for King Albert and Queen Paola not attending the event. Princesses did a good job standing in for their in-laws.

They enjoyed a mighty good concert, I might add!

Though I am sure that Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz had a better program, with Lorenzo Gatto and Noah Bendix-Balgley, last Tuesday.

You musn't forget that the Queen Elisabeth Contest is a very long marathon of concerts. The finals take a week, with two musicians every night. They also last until midnight or well past that. I think it would be unrealistic to expect the same members of the royal family to attend every day. I'm sure the King and Queen will appear at one time.

When was this picture taken Stephanie? Was she there tonight, or was it an earlier concert?

It is great to see Queen Fabiola again! She looks really great, especially considering how sick she had been a few months ago. I like seeing Princess Claire and CP Mathilde together. They seem to have a close friendship.

Queen Elisabeth Music competition is a great opportunity to listen to and enjoy masterpieces of classical music. Young musicians can showcase their skills and meet members of the Belgian Royal family. It is nice to see photos of Crown Princess Mathilde and Princess Elisabeth, who has started her royal training.

I was really hoping Queen Fabiola would be able to attend this and I'm glad to see the pics of her! She looks fantastic considering her recent ill health and thanks so much for the nice photos!
