Nice picture but they could smile a little.
Isn't that the tiara of her wedding? The one Queen Paola wears all the time?

I don't know...there is a time to smile big like in informal photos with family but sometimes a king and queen need to be regal, which these two do so, so well.

I'm not saying a big smile, but a little or discrete grin. They look so serious to me.

this is true . other than last night when they let themselves go a little they seem a introverted and serious family. but they look peaceful and relaxed to me in the photos.

At her wedding she wore the Queen Elisabeth's Diamond Bandeau

no, that is the base of the so called Nine Provinces tiara, only worn by the Queen Consort "in charge". Queen Fabiola used to wear it that way tiara but since it's an official portrait, I would have opted for the complete version of it.

just for the same reason I think they were not required to smile. this pictures will be used in offices, city halls and so on...so I think they are just perfect.

if only the graphics didn't use so much Photoshop on the King

That means the Tiara now belongs to Mathilde? I mean, she will have freedom to wear it at other tiara events?

Oh that's utterly magnificent - possibly the best official portrait I have ever seen!

What an incredible portrait of the new King and Queen. Mathilde in particular looks born to the role.

Is the brooch one she worn before or is it for the consort as well? The gown does call to mind Maxima. Still the royal couple look regal and magnificent.

This tiara can only be worn by the current Queen of Belgium.
When Elisabeth becomes Queen, Mathilde will pass on the tiara to her daughter.

yes she does, but if I'm correct it is tradition to only use it at home...at least, Queen Paola only used it at State Banquets hosted by Belgium. Aboard she kept on using her Bandeau Tiara. I hope that now Mathilde will receive the Bandeau tiara as well from her mother in law...and the Spanish wedding gift Tiara from Queen Fabiola of course. but this is another topic...

She wore it also at State Visit's abroad. In Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and i believe even in Morocco.
