Great to see the family enjoying their adventures in Egypt! Hopefully this will boost the tourism (particularly amongst Benelux tourists) of Egypt which seems to have dwindled over the past few years. I visited Egypt a few weeks before Tutankahmun's tomb closed, and it was a fantastic experience, especially if you're into history or geology.
It's nice to see Elisabeth back with the family for the Christmas holidays. I'm sure she and her siblings are enjoying spending their time with each other before she goes back to Wales again. All of Philippe and Mathilde's children seem to be very close to one another.

It's some tour guide they got!

Hawass is the leading Egyptian Egyptologist!
He is also directly responsible for all major digs, experiments, scannings and what not the scientists may come up with in regards to ancient Egypt.

Yes I saw that and wow........what a thrill to have him as a guide. This is one very outstanding man who has saved so much of the ancient history of Egypt and kept the artifacts in Egypt. I have quite a few of his books here. To bad he is no longer in control of the monuments for he really did a great job. I call him my favorite Pharaoh of all ancient Egypt, yea I admire him a great deal. I always wished he would of come to the Oriental Institute here in Chicago at the University of Chicago which is world famous for all Egyptologist working in the field where I used to be a volunteer. What a fabulous place to visit...... Check out the Oriental Institute on google and see this fabulous place!

The Palace shared a message on the occasion of the International Day of Education (January 24):

Quote:
Investing in education is investing in people and thus in sustainable development. For a quality education in which no one is excluded and certainly not the girls, we need motivated and well-guided teachers

Queen Mathilde at the end of her visit to Mozambique, talking to the press about her trip and about the Princess Elisabeth and her life in Wales:

“It is an adaptation for everyone in our family. But I think it is above all an enrichment for her. She studies with peers from all over the world.”

“She can enjoy a normal life there (in Wales), which I find really important. A private life. Let her enjoy that. She is still young.”

Queen Mathilde wishes for a private life for her daughter – Royal Central

They've been going to Spain for several years now. Great way to spend your easter holidays; doing part of the Camino de Santiago each year (when living in Spain; we decided to do it at some point as well - still not sure when it will truly happen).

The family is walking a new stretch of the Way of St. James during Holy Week, as they have done in past years. This year they visit Palencia and Burgos.

No photosession this year? Loved last year's summer photos...but, since it's already National Day tomorrow, perhaps, there won't be any this year?

The newspaper article is referring to polls carried out in Germany, where Mathilde is rather unknown. It has nothing to do with Belgium.
