Bss Marie Claude Solvay is the godmother of Pss Louise IIRC. Is there any particular reason why she is guest of honour?

Pss Lea looks elegant as usual btw.

I'd say she is more than a guest of honour. Mimi Solvay is very involved in Laurent's foundation. Lots of his fundraising events were held at her estate in Terhulpen and I guess many guests attend because of her.
Besides Mimi Solvay plays a major role in Laurent's life. Albert and Paola's children were placed in 'surrogate' families during their youth. It was Mimi Solvay who took care of Laurent. In fact he even lived at her place for some years and while Laurent doesn't even greet his parents in public these last years you will find his 'foster mom' Mimi Solvay accompanying him to official activities.

Lol no, unfortunately the Belgian royal family doesn't have an abundance of "palaces" to distribute among the relatives...

Amedeo & Lili live in a private house (I mean one they bought) in Brussels.

Thanks for sharing this pictures. Glad to see our former King and Queen with Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz.

No Savoie or Bourbon Parme attendance ?

How do we know they refused to attend after being invited? I'm not being snarky, just curious if there have been reports about it?

It was reported by Sudinfo

I do admire the new king, but I have to admit that since he became the new king, he's been pushing his family aside. I can't not blame Albert II, Astrid or Laurent for not attending

Today is Prince /Archduke Lorenz's 60th birthday so perhaps he and Princess/Archduchess Astrid had other plans but such a pity none of the rest of the Royal family were in attendance.

I also think that it is a pity that none of the other members of the Royal Family attended, as they usually did in the past; on the other hand, IMO it is very nice and somehow refreshing and invigorating to see this new, united, young and happy Royal Family.
