I didn't miss Prince Laurent but it would have been nice to see Princess Claire and children there.

I wonder why Princes Gabriel and Emmanuel did not smile at all.

Lovely to see King Albert with King Philippe and Princess Astrid at the Christmas concert. Should we see it as a show of support and family unity after the Delphine Boël court case ?

Paola is apparently still recovering in Brussels. That's the reason why Albert was present. All the other Christmases were spent in Italy.

Yes Hanelore you are right. But Queen Poala went to a Concert recently and looked well. She could have come to the Royal Palace. But???

BB has a nice coverage of the family as well:

What does the "light of peace" signify?

True. It least Albert was there, he's aged a lot I think. Looking frail.

I had never heard of it either. Apparently it's an Austrian custom since 1986 to spread the light of peace from Bethlehem among people. An Austrian child lights the candle in Bethlehem, the light travels to Vienna and in the 3rd week of Advent it spreads its light to every town in Austria, and recently also to other European localities. In Belgium it were scouting groups who helped to spread the light that symbolizes peace, hope, tolerance and unity.

Thanks, Hannelore.

It'll be interesting to see whether it will now become common in Belgium too.
