Time flies...
Princess Elisabeth seems confident during the speech. Beautifully presented, she did very well. She struck me as dignified and intelligent girl.

Princess Elizabeth gave a wonderful speech, by herself, in three languages, for a WWI commemoration. She has a tremendous amount of poise as well as an obvious aptitude for language.

You're welcome, Noor Mariam


King Philippe and Queen Mathilde this evening, October 24, attended the world premiere of 'Shell Shock', an opera on World War I, at La Monnaie-De Munt in Brussels.

Shell Shock was created by Belgian composer Nicholas Lens, Australian author and musician Nick Cave and Belgian-Moroccan choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.

Here is video of the lovely little Duchess of Brabant shortly before her 13th birthday last week, flawlessly delivering a speech in three languages(Dutch, French,German) ...a speech that she wrote herself. What an impressive future queen. She puts many Royals 3 times her age in the shade!

What an articulate young lady she is becoming, and so pretty. Her parents are doing a great job in raising her to be the future queen.

The above link contains photos of the dinner hosted by King and Queen of Belgium for Governor General of Canada and his spouse to Belgium.

Mrs Johnston's makeup was clownish and inappropriate for her age.

Strange, the official representative of the Queen in Canada calling a King and a Queen "Royal Highnesses"....
I also found odd that the GG and his wife wore orders while TM didn´t...
Queen Mathilde looked wonderful, as always!

You really need to start adding IMO in some of your, shall I say, clownish statements. *Dr.* Johnson looked very nice last night and certainly *not* clownish. Not only my opinion, but my Parents as well, as we were laughing over how Queen Mathilde's height made Dr. Johnson look like a teeny tiny thing.

She has been a wonderful Ambassador for Canada and support for her husband since he became our Governor General and not once has she ever appeared clownish in Public!!

I know I just took the bait in yet another one of your "contributions" to the Board, but this time you decided to post your nastiness about a lovely lady who is a representative of my Country and an excellent one at that. Not okay.

It is nice to see Lalla Meryem representing Morocco. I wonder why Grand Duchess Maria Teresa stopped attending events alongside Grand Duke Henry.
