Smile Questions and answers?

I have a few questions to ask about Crown Prince Phillipe and Crown Princess Mathilde.

1. How did Prince Phillipe meet Mathilde?

2. How did he propose to Mathilde?

3. How do you all feel about the age gap between them?

4. Do you think Mathilde's character, attitude has changed in the years?

1. I think they met playing tennis but I'm not entirely sure.
2. Don't know
3. I think 13 years is acceptable. I personally wouldn't marry anyone old enough to be my parent/young enough to be my child (though I'm not going to have to worry about the second for quite some time!). It might have been more of an issue if Mathilde was under 20 but she was a mature, grown woman and they seem perfect for each other.
4. I've only just started to follow this family so pass.

Is there anyone here who can tell me when Mathilde made her first official solo engagement as Duchess of Brabant? (within Belgium) I've gone through the current events archives but they don't seem to cover 2000 and 2001, or even 2002.

How long after her wedding was it? THANKS MUCH in advance!

I didn't know there was an age gap of 13 years, they have always looked so happy together and so for me, age is not important. I must say Philippe doesn't look his age to me and Mathilde hasn't aged a bit over the last 15 or so years!
Certainly her character and attitude has remained as lovely as ever as far as I can see.

I agree, Philippe and Mathilde have always seemed so perfectly in sync with one another. They are one of those matches made in heaven that you hear and read about.
