And I also agree -- something does need to be done in our world. It seems out of control with violence. We need more example like the King of Thailand who stressed the kindness each one is responsible for contributing to the whole, or something to that effect.

Back to Philippe and Mathilde, I wonder if we will see much more about this trip. Without sounding callous to the tragedy in Belgium, I hope they are able to complete the goals of their trip after all the hard work I am sure they have done to prepare for it.

i couldn't agree more. They seem very close and it's lovely to see their love and devotion to each other. imo she's one of the most regal and elegant royal ladies on the forum.
my sincere sympathy to those dear girls family and the Belgian nation, the world's gone mad and the innocent always pay the highest price.

Mathilde and Philippe attended a reception for the Belgian delegation and their Russian hosts at the Metropole Hotel in Moscow yesterday. Most of the pics are too tiny to be “good-looking”, but at least the give some impressions. And Mathilde´s dress looks nice. (picturedesk, profimedia)

Thank you all for the great photos. Any idea where the reception was held yesterday? The ceiling of that space is quite impressive.

I have to echo the above sentiments. I absolutely love this couple. I just adore the picture above where Phillipe is looking at Mathilde as they are pictured in front of the Cathedral in Red Square.
Elegant. Are they coming home today as it was announced that they are cutting short their visit to Russia?

Thank you for the information on where the event was held. Since that space is in a hotel, I am not too surprised it is a pricy venue!! These pictures are beautiful. Linda, I think they were cutting short their walk through Red Square, not their whole visit.

I know alot of people, especially those at HELLO magazine think that Mary is the most stylish Crown Princess, but I have to disagree. Mathilde looks wonderful in Russia. I love her style!

Prince Philippe made an excursion to Karzan, the capital of the Russian Republic Tatastan today. He visited the Mosque and the Cathedral there and met with President Shaimiev (see Fanletizia´s post above). Princess Mathilde departed to Belgium. It seems the Crown princes share the same unkind fate: No wife near by – no pics in sight ;-)

So here are more pics from …. yesterday. (Belga)

CP Mathilde - there's no words to describe her beauty, grace and elegance...
She is one classy lady and together with CP Philippe, they make one classy and great team. It's so touching and heartwarming to see their love and devotion to each other from their body language and actions.

And i love her choice of outfits - so timless and beautiful.

thanks so much for everyone who posted pictures!
