Thanks for the link to HRH's speech in English Iceflower. Julliette's right. It was a good one.

This is such an important issue for all of us in what's considered to be the "Advanced Countries" and also I think a portion of the current Financial Crisis we're dealing w/. If children and Pre Teens/Teens aren't taught how to properly handle their money and to do it wisely, well...We've all seen what can happen in the long term.

Is Maxima also attending this? I'd think as this fits in w/her role w/the UN when it comes to Global Microfinance, she would be.

You are most welcome, julliette and Tiggersk8! Máxima has not been listed to attend the meeting as well and if she had been there we would surely have seen some pics, but I agree, it perfectly fits into her assignment and field of interest..



Here are some more pics and a video of the meeting of Crown Prince Philippe and European Council President Herman Van Rompuy today:

Crown Prince Philippe has attended the Last Post ceremony, a commemoration of World War I, at the Menenport, in Ieper (Ypres) on November 11, 2012. The ceasefire went into effect in 1918 as Germany signed an armistice agreement with the Allies. They also commemorate the victims of the Second World War II (1940-1945) and of humanitarian and peace operations after 1945.

Getting to actually see the ceremony at the Menen Gate is one of the many things I have on my bucket list that I hope to be able to achieve someday. Thanks for the links and are there any to an actual video of the entire ceremony? Not just of Phillipe laying his wreath in tribute, but of the entire thing?

Thanks in advance!!

You are most welcome, Daisiesforever! And Tiggersk8, I've tried but couldn't find a video of the whole ceremony, here's at leat the link to the official site in case you haven't found it yourself yet .


According to a press release of the Royal House's website Crown Prince Philippe, Crown Princess Mathilde and their children yesterday also received contemporary witnesses for a meeting at the Castle of Laeken. They met with witnesses of the second World War to honour them and to teach the children about the need to remember and to respect the suffering.

Crown Princess Mathilde has made a visit to the "Tehuis voor Foorreizigers- en Schipperskinderen" (boarding school for children of fairground travelers and skipper children), during the reading-week, in Etterbeek on November 19, 2012.


A real princess reading bedtime stories - must have been a great evening for the kids!
