Philippe and Mathilde's Visit to Washington: April 18-21, 2005

I was watching a royalty program last Friday (C'est du Belge) where it was announced that Filip & Mathilde's next trip abroad will be to America (US?) in April. No further details yet.

According to the official webpage it says Philippe and Mathilde will be in Washington on April 18th, but I don't know how long they'll be gone for.

Mathilde happy and glowing in the pics, looking extra special with that tiny bump.

Let me add my congrats to would-be-parents. May they have a beautiful daughter or handsome son. :)

If you go to this link:
http://www.vtm.be/nieuws/index_bekijkonline.htm
and choose Dinsdag 19/04 13u then about 15 1/2 minutes into the news there's a small piece on Philippe and Mathilde's trip to the World War II Memorial. Mathilde is handed flowers from a bystander (or at least some guy) who's congratulating her on her pregnancy, and who also gives her two t-shirts: one for Elisabeth and one for Gabriel.

Thanks for the tip Mette, a very nice video.

Here are some more pics of Filip & Mathilde at the wreath laying ceremony in remembrance of the American soldiers who fought in the battle of the Bulge (in Belgium).

Afterwards there was a reception at the residence of the Belgian ambassador. A beautiful residence IMO!

Another video, from la une. It was explained that this is above all a diplomatic voyage, to try to heel the wounds from president Bush's first term.
