Today the Duchess of Brabant will visit the André Scheers House which provides information and psychosocial support for severely burned victims and their family.This program is integrated into the Teaching hospital of Ghent. At the time of multidisciplinary round tables, the Princess will explain the course of care and follow-up. The Princess also has an abstract contact with old badly burned persons which called upon the House Andre Scheers.


More information on the facility in Dutch (while we await pictures;) )

Still no pics, but you can watch parts of the visit online in the vtm-news. Just follow this link and go to Donderdag 14/09 19uur. The news clip starts at about 28 min run time.

Princess Mathilde had extensive conservations with burn patients, their dependents and with the medical staff. The presentation by the physicians contained pictures of massive burns and Mathilde has been under the impression of these severe injuries. VTM interviewed a member of the medical team and she told them that the princess was very kind and very concerned towards the children and asked them a lot of questions. She took some extra time and stayed one hour longer than planned. At the end she got some presents for Elisabeth, Gabriel and Emmanuel from the little patients, who are as attentive as brave.

I now truely admire Mathilde. My brother is severely burned and I know it is very hard to look at burn patients, especially within the first few months of them being burned. I also know, from a psychological standpoint, it's very hard to deal with being burned or having a family member of yours burned. Taking care of someone who has been burned is a long process. For my brother it's still going on and will continue to go on until he dies because he was burned so badly. I'm glad to see that Mathilde visited this house.

Mathilde has two engagements today:
She takes part at an academic session at the “Palace of the Academies” in Brussels to mark the 20th anniversary of the University Children’s Hospital Queen Fabiola.
And she visits the school “Chouette“ in Molenbeek-Saint-Jean in connection with the Heritage Open Days. Mathilde is invited by the scholars to learn more about the history of the school and it’s surrounding – the Duchess of Brabant Place.

Here are some pics from the last event. And I really love her outfit…. (Belga, here are some more)

Mathilde looks great, I would say it's kind of "free style" of her clothes from the visit in Molenbeek-Saint-Jean. Is it first time when we saw her in jeans?

No, certainly not - but I think it's the first time she's worn jeans for a public visit (very apropriate here), when she went cycling with Filip on carfree day she wore jeans as well, and on lots of private occasions of course.

johann 09-15-2006 12:54 PM

By now she has worn jeans as “work outfit” when she was visiting sport events/watching tennis games. She has worn jeans trousers at the Roland Garros half-final in Paris and during the Fed Cup earlier this year.

…and getty has some nice pics too. (credit: Getty Images/ Mark Renders)

Thank you for the photos!!! Mathilde is looking as elegant and radiant as always.

Alisa 09-15-2006 06:25 PM

Thank you for the pictures.
I'm quite surprised by the Duchess' casual jean jacket, but if one were going to wear one an event with children is most appropriate. I think she looks great in that black and white suit..très élégant.:flowers:

juliana 09-15-2006 10:38 PM

Always lovely photos of Mathilde and she is hardly ever looking towards the cameras and always seems totally focused on the people she is with. A true princess.

Sister Morphine 09-15-2006 11:04 PM

She looks very relaxed, which is key when you're working with kids. Kids can feed off your nerves, and if you look nervous or apprehensive.....they'll know. I also love the outfit she's wearing; a jean jacket can look just as classy as a black blazer if you pair it with the right clothes and it looks like she's done that. :-)

Mathilde1286 09-16-2006 01:55 AM

Wow! Mathilde looks great!!! I love the jean jacket and white pants combo!

Hannelore 09-16-2006 02:08 AM

Molenbeek, where the school is, is a very poor neighbourhood of Brussels where nearly only immigrants live. It has very high criminality and disemployment rates. I think this nice jeans jacket was lot more apropriate for the visit than somthing formal - somehow it was a bit closer to he kids' world, but she still looks stylish.

small info: the bandage around Filip's hand is because of a broken finger.

Mathilde looks great with jeans !:flowers:

Danielle 09-16-2006 08:04 PM

I didn't even realise it was a jean-jacket until closer inspection. It just doesn't look like one from a distance. I'm not a big fan of denim jackets, but hers is actually very stylish and I think it's appropriate to the event.

I really love how she kneels at the children's level instead of half bending down like others often do. I think it shows that she's not too 'good' to go down to their level and actually have a conversation with them. That's what I love about Mathilde. It doesn't matter who it is, she'll treat them just the same as if she were talking to her own friends or family.

Article from HELLO
Belgium's Crown Princess Mathilde was overwhelmed with affection when she met pupils on a recent engagement in the Brussels region. School children bearing flags and balloons in the country's national colours of black, yellow and red crowded eagerly round their royal guest....
