I saw on TV an interview of Princes Philippe and Lorenz's tailor. One of the best in Bruxelles. No-body knows about Prince laurent's tailor..but what a difference !

Oh, yes, an enormous difference...although Laurent sometimes wears very nice shirts.
Btw, I don't think the problem is only the tailor, I'm sure that if Laurent some weight, his suits would soon suit him better.

Well...the links between the Belgian RF and Italy are:
the first Queen of the Belgians, Louise, was half italian on her maternal side;
Princess Marie Charlotte, Luise and Leopold I's daughter, was Vicereine of Lombardy-Venetia (my region!), as wife of Archduke Maximilian, Viceroy from 1857 to 1859;
Princess Maria José became Queen of Italy, as wife of King Umberto II;
the then Prince Albert, now King, married Donna Paola Ruffo di Calabria;
Princess Astrid married to the titular Duke of Modena, Archduke Lorenz, who is half italian (his mother was born Princess of Savoy, and his paternal grandmother Empress Zita was italian too);
and among Princess Mathilde's ancestors are the Dukes of Savoy (in XVI century).
Other minor links are between the belgian aristocracy and the italian royalty and aristocracy are:
Princess Lydia of Savoy, Duchess of Genova and of Pistoia, was belgian, born Princess of Arenberg, and step-aunt of Laetitia de Belsunce d'Arenberg, mother of the titular Grand Duke of Tuscany;
Prince Charles d'Arenberg married to Donna Fiammetta dé Frescobaldi-Franceschi-Marinis, from one of the most ancient italian families.

Mathilde and Paola looked really nice.

ng Albert still wears a mourning tie and dark suit to mourn his brother Prince Alexander of Belgium. Also Queen Paola uses black. The same at their visit to Soignies on 10 December, when the King wore the same dark tie and Queen Paola was dressed in grey.

Thanks for the picture. Mathilde looked very nice. If I am not mistaken there should still follow 3 New Years receptions.

You are most welcome! And yes, I've also had four receptions from
2009 in mind, so let's hope and see if we get three more again

Here are some additional pics from today:
