As far as I know nothing big and special is planned, and definetely
nothing comparable to the big celebrations in Denmark..


Here's the large getty/zimbio gallery:


** 34th Floralies Of Ghent Official Launch **


On another note: Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde will attend the funeral
of Polish President Lech Kaczyński and wife on Sunday, April 18!

Royalsmartie, Floralies is a flower, plant, floral arrangement
exhibition that already takes place for the 34th time. This
year it runs from April 17 to April 25.

Princess Mathilde and Prince Philippe attended it as a normal
official engagement, but as it's been Prince Philippe's birthday
they brought their children as a special surprise and Prince
Philippe was honoured with a rhododendron that was named
after him and therefore officially baptized by him.

Cool

Thank you for the pictures iceflower and stephanievl. A beautiful family. I have read that Philippe will have a birthday celebration later and due to volcanic ash, they will be unable to go to Copenhagen (as also the King and Queen).

It's not weird to have flowers named after you, many royals have flowers named after them.
It's a shame that so many royals have missed the celebrations due to the Volcano.

If I don't mistake, the president of Polish parliament who is now acting as President of Poland is a relative of Mathilde, isn't he?

Wikipedia:
Bronisław Maria Komorowski was born in Oborniki Śląskie. Komorowski is the son of Count Zygmunt Leon Komorowski (1924–1993) and Jadwiga Komorowska (née Szalkowska) (1921–). His family comes from the territory of Aukštaitija, northern Lithuania, and the Komorowski family for 200 years ruled Żywiecczyzna in Poland. He is distantly related to Princess Mathilde of Belgium, Duchess of Brabant, via her mother Anna Countess d'Udekem d'Acoz born Countess Komorowska.
