Written at the Benelux royals Board, by Catherine:



From 20 to 28 November 2004, prince Philippe will preside an economic mission to China. Mathilde will accompany him.



Marie-Rose Morel, a member of the fascist Flemish party Vlaams Blok will also be present. She won't go as a member of parliament, but for private reasons: to push the wheelchair her father sits in!! Her father is Chris Morel, an imprtant business man in the 80s. The man is an honorary citizen of Shanghai. The king's chef of cabinet has asked father Morel to stay at home, but he refused. Him and his daughter are paying the trip themselves

Court is of course very embarresed by this and has refused all comment. Fientje Moerman, regional minister of export now has to solve this problem. Philippe wants to have nothing to do with the Vlaams Blok (or FN). His father and uncle, Albert and Baudouin have always refused to receive members of this racist and separatiste party in audience.

My thoughts exactly.
I haven't been on this forum since Sunday and couldn't believe that the pictures and last postings were gone, but thought it was because of the new server.
Pictures from their trip would definitely be greatly appriciated. :)

Really beautiful pics from the first day.

Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde of Belgium pose as the night scene of the Bund is seen on the background ahead of the Belgian Gala Night in Shanghai, 24 November 2004. Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde lead a Belgian economic group for a week-long visit in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.

One of the best dresses she's ever worn IMO. Sublime.
