I thought the couple tend to use the nearby Fenffe castle, that Ciergnon is the getaway for Albert and Paola. Or did they start using Ciergnon when they came to the throne?

Beautiful castle, both of them. Wouldn't mind spending my break there.

By my understanding former King Albert stopped the use of Ciergnon and Fenffe because he is left "poor" after his abdication. He had desavoued the Government for not maintaining certain promises made at the eve of his adbication. It seems he was worried how Queen Paola would be left once he was no more. Anyway, he makes only use of Bélvedère and their villa in Châteauneuf-sur-Grasse. Also his properties in Oostende and Knokke have been sold. Former Queen Paola bought an old vicarage near Fenffe as an alternative to the Château.

The vicarage was bought long before Albert II's abdication.

I think the real reason why Albert & Paola no longer use Ciergnon, is more practical. Since Albert's abdication they've hardly been in Belgium. They now live in Rome for most part of the year. The other times are spent travelling. I'd say they spend no more than a few weeks a year in Belgium.

Thanks Iceflower. It seems that Elisabeth, Gabriel and Emmanuel are all wearing braces.

Yes, the joys of being a teenager! Emmanuel started wearing them last summer. He was first seen with them at the 'party' (haha) for his grandma's 80th birthday.

Braces surely are "popular" among royal children/teens nowadays (Alexia uses them now too and Amalia did as well). Elisabeth is using them for a while now, but I didn't know Gabriel started using them too. Never got the experience of using braces, me and my brother always had space in the mouth for all the teeth.

Love the headband on Elisabeth, but since it's snowing, I don't think it was a smart choice, for fashion yes, for the weather no. Love the style of Queen Mathilde, and Gabriel is getting so tall now.
