if you're referring to the Ban Ki Moon picture that was a dinner...they keep on holding those sorts of things in Laeken probably because there's more room in it for repections - larger state rooms for State Banquets.

The Royal Palace we may visit from July 25th to September 7th for free has huge historical Rooms such as the Throne room where King Leopold III and Albert's Abdications took place.
Also happily King Baudouin civil Wedding in 1960.
The King and the Queen are living in Laeken and the Greenhouses are open to the Public now. It is their nicest moment of the year.

Also Hôtel Bellevue, in a wing of Brussels Palace, is open year round (I believe), containing the Museum of the Dynasty, and is fascinating. I have visited there several times.

same thought....I understand that probably there's a more relaxed attitude towards the young generation of royals...but we're still talking about the head of state, his wife and his daughter (hopefully future head of state). they should show a little more respect...

Elisabeth is so like Philippe, it's lovely. She also comes across quite shy but I like that.

The King and Queen are visiting Poland on 4 June, to take part in the official commemorations of the 25th anniversary of the first (partially) free elections in Poland. Other royal guests include the Grand Duke of Luxembourg and Earl of Wessex. Besides that, several dozen of republican heads of state and government, including President Barack Obama of the United States. More info in a special thread: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...and-37016.html
