maybe mathilde and philippe took advantage of haakon and MM still being in mexico to meet up with them?

while i do agree that next to mathilde mrs zavala looks slightly less sophisticated or elegant, i need to say she is actually appropriate and dignified while at the same time being simple. the european type of dressing or behaving would in latin america be too over the top. i think she does very well. i know of other latin american first ladies (ehem... presidents!) who carry themselves not only in an unelegant manner when compared to european wives of statesmen but are also extremely arrogant and impolite. fortunately mrs zavala is simple enough to not fall into the unelegant syle and knows how to keep a secondary role.
And don't forget,HM Queen Beatrix,and probably our sweethearts of the forum Alexander and Máxima....,will pay a State Visit to Mexico this fall.But first the President and Mrs. will pay a State Visit to the UK end of this month,march 30th till april 2nd.

Veering off the topic a bit, I would like to note that all these visits are beneficial to Mexico and its image in the international arena. It would be fair to say that the country is more known for not so pleasant reports related to drugs and criminal activities. I do hope that all these visits contribute to new business opportunities for Mexican businessmen that would result in a better life for usual people.

Thanks for videos! I enjoyed watching Crown Princess Mathilde undertaking an engagement. She seems to be at ease interacting with people around her. I like the way she speaks. Her voice is so soft.

The Prince and the Princess are on Official Visit AND economic visit. They have with them a lot of belgian scientic people, businessmen and others. For these people this visit with the King's son is really very important.
Is is also very important for Belgium to be known in all these countries.
What Mathilde is wearing is important too and she has for this Visits an unlimited budget providing of the Foreign Affairs.
Prince Philippe is doing what his Father did so well during so many years as Prince de Liege. The then Princess of Liege was not always with him on his economical visits, because never a Princess showed so well what was doing was boring...
During the speeches she looked at the sky or birds or the ceilings.
Now she likes a lot to be Queen , Since Albert II is King a lot of things changes in their private life.
