I love how humble she appears...it is so appropriate with the place and cause she is there for...Not to compare, but just my two cents: other princesses who do involve themselves with issues of unfortunate causes don't seem to appear as humble as Mathilde does...they all dress up too much with way too much makeup, jewelry, clothes, and way too done up hair...I just can't get over how humble Mathilde is...how even more humble she is in events such as these...She truly is the greatest role model!!! Way to go, Mathilde! :) :)

PRINCESS MATHILDE LENDS A SYMPATHETIC EAR IN TANZANIA

Chatting warmly with Tanzanian women and children, Belgium's Crown Princess Mathilde shows the unaffected charm and empathy that have made her a favourite both in her country and further afield. On her three-day humanitarian trip to the African nation, which ended on Thursday, the caring royal lent a sympathetic ear wherever she went.

With three kids of her own - the youngest of whom, Emmanuel, is just four months old - the royal was perfectly at ease as she visited a home for orphans during the UNICEF mission.

Mathilde is a real 'charity princess' if you know what I mean. She has such a lovely and charming way with people. It's just wonderful seeing all these pictures of her visit to Tanzania. :)

What a great trip by Princess Mathilde, she's indeed doing a great job working with all of these worthy causes. She seems to be a great "people's person" and a great communicator, very close, open and friendly to everyone. I especially like the picture if her digging to plant a tree, sitting on her knees just like most people would.

Thanks for all the great pictures!

Thanks so much for the pictures -- what pride you Belgians must feel to be so well represented by Mathilde. She is just terrific. Does anyone know when the tour ends?
