I dont know, but she deffently should have chosen some trousers (or a skirt) that does not crease as much as linnen pants do.

Its good to see Nelson Mandela but he is getting very old and frail now:( He seems to like to hold on to blond Princesses though (ANB)

thanks so much for the information, what a great organization. They are such a lovely couple it makes me smile just looking at them. I believe she's one of the most elegant ladies i've ever seen- in all circumstances, wearing a ball gown or in pants with orphan children, just beautiful.

I would love to know what the Prince is reacting to in the far right picture, top row! He looks like he's very excited about whatever it is he's seeing. Anyone know?

Thanks Jess & Larzen, great photos!

Here are some more from Belga. They visited a special project where young black girls get a training to become professional diamond workers. Diamond is an important export product of Belgium, with Antwerp as most important diamond trading city in the world.

and one more of Philippe (belga)

Mathilde & Philippe had a private conversation with Nelson Mandela during 30 minutes, they said they were very impressed, and that they look up to him a lot .

They've met a lot of impressive personalities in the last few days: Desmond Tutu, Kofi Annan and now Nelson Mandela!

Hmmm seems that Philippe got some inspiration – since diamonds are rare in belgiums royal family...
Judging from Philippe`s constant smile, they sure had a great time.

Thank you to everyone who posted these wonderful and beautiful pictures, and for all the information.:) It's great that there are so many pictures from each visit they've made. I agree that the blue purse the other day was not a good choice. And I hope to see them at a gala dinner, and for an equally beautiful dress like the one Mathilde wore in China.

Indeed, the jacket doesn't flatter her, although I like what I see of the top--would have liked to see more. Hair, as usual very well done.

I wish Mathilde would wear more dresses/skirts and not too many trousers. Although utilitarian, they don't do much for her figure, which is tremendous. I understand that this is due to her dislike of her legs, a pity, for I think she has wonderful legs and should show them off.

Filip should think of getting a new tiara for his wife! That would be nice!

Look at the prince, I love to see him laughing! Were is the time when we harldy could notice a little smile. With Mathilde on his side he has become so much more relax and certainly happier. Lovely couple!

(I think this isn't going to be the best vestimental mission for Mathilde.)
