It's sad, but I've got to say that I thought King Albert looked very frail at Queen Fabiola's funeral.

Beautiful pictures. I love the dresses of Élisabeth and Eléonore.

Gabriel still looks so sad. I don't think it is going to be a happy Christmas for him.

I agree. He had also a minor surgary a few weeks ago, I don't think he's in a good health.

Poor Gaby, breaks my heart. I feel like Eleonore is pretty annoyed by all those pictures. During the funeral of Q.Fabiola she was also annoyed. Poor little girl is only six, and a concert is long when you're her age

Nice to see the whole family there.
Eleonore looks a little upset, but it's understandable.
Sad that King Albert II and Queen Paola didn´t attend.

I love the Belgian children. They are to me the true example of royal children. Lovely, all four of them.

I often wonder if it is because they are royal and aristocratic blood going back centuries on both sides that gives them such unfailing poise and decorum. It is just IN the DNA :)

It is unfortunate that King Albert, Queen Paola, Prince Laurent, and Archduke Lorenz were unable to attend the event.

Princess Astrid looked nice.

It was nice to see them all at a joyous occasion such as the Christmas Concert at the Palace given the past week and funeral of Queen Fabiola.

Queen Paola was absent?

It's just because they are Belgians, duh
I think they are not always very royal. On pictures and official events, yes, but otherwise they are just normal kids. How many times did Eleonore let her shoe fall during the funeral of Q. Fabiola? :p

The annual Christmas concert was one of Queen Fabiola's favorite events. With the exception of the last year of her life, she never missed it.

What a beautiful family Philippe and Mathilde and their children make!

This year the concert was in Queen Fabiola's honour. Both Philippe and Mathilde are still in mourning and wearing black.

Gabriel is certainly a very handsome boy, he looks very much like his Mother. My heart went out to him at Queen Fabiola's funeral when he was so distressed.

On another note, whatever was Claire thinking when combining that necklace with the top she was wearing. Yikes!!!! It looks like a lovely necklace but it's awful with the neckline of that top.
