Something I discovered: Philippe is almost as great as Mathilde when it comes to interacting with children (and she is nearly unbeatable). They are so relaxed, they sure have a very nice time.
Many thanks for the pics!

I really like this one : http://img143.imagevenue.com/img.php...6110000015.jpg

Such an elegant silhouet, and a bit mysterious...Olivier Polet, who took this picture, is philippe & Mathilde's favorite photographer.

I just saw a part of the report on this mission in Place Royale. There were a lot more activities than the pictures we have here (and a lot more outfits :), which also look a lot better on video than on photos somehow)

Maybe you were wondering what Philippe & Mathilde were laughing with in this photo:

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...2&d=1142363019

They were visiting a boarding school for young navy cadets. The buildings were built by a Danish firm with material from Denmark. A young student welcomed the prince and princess. He gave a very nice speech ending with the words ... It's a great pleasure for us to welcome the prince and princess of Denmark! Someone corrected him saying "No, Belgium, Belgium!". It was a funny situation and Philippe said to the boy "Don't worry, we'll pass the word to the prince and princess of Denmark!"

That's hilarious. Thank you for telling this Cathérine.:) Now if Philippe and Mathilde could come to Denmark, tell Frederik and Mary this, and meet them in Aalborg in a café that would be really nice. I'm allowed to dream right.
Also thank you to everyone for the recent pictures.:)

That's a nice dream Mette. If it comes true, I'm sure you'll post outside the café to take pictures for us :)

Leanne, I can't put the link to that specific program here, because it isn't online, but another program is, so I'll post that in a day or two...

In 'De Standaard' a Belgian newspaper I read an article about the prince and the economic mission. There was a businessman who attacted the prince by saying that after seven meetings with the prince, he still didn't know his name. (The prince meets hundreds of people, it's understandable one could forget the name of an unfriendly businessman)
But there were also other comments on the prince. Van Quickenborne, a republican said he found this first trip with the prince usefull and to learn from. "The prince opens doors and the businesslive gets its profits from it". Aslo minister Moerman was content. They maid a great deal with the diamondsector. The frontman of UNIZO was also very enthousiast and told those critics were overreacting. The prince knows a lot and is truely interested.
(Somehow there are always people who have to gave critics on the prince. And sometimes, very stupid critics IMO ...)

People will always be criticizing if they don't manage to sell (they have to do a little effort themselves of course). If even a republican is content about the prince, I don't think he did a bad job...

You can be sure I will Cathérine.:) I don't own a digital camera, but I'm sure some of my friends have a scanner, and would be able to help me out, so I could scan my pictures and post them here. Aaahhh, I'm still dreaming.
