Johann - you are so on top of everything - first the Luxemborg wedding and now the update here. I am glad you clarified the activities of M & M because I, too, was under the impression their UN work was continuing, except I thought both were still involved with microfinance, so was wrong.

I also appreciate the TV link showing Mathilde and Fabiola. I miss seeing the Crown Princely Belgian family of late - any ideas on why they are not out in public more?

Prince Philippe inspected the company ALFACAM - EURO1080 in Lint today. Alfacam provides TV-facilities and services to broad-casters and production houses. As a participant of Belgium’s open enterprise day Alfacam invited the public to have a closer look inside. Philippe was accompanied by his new advisor Boudewijn Dereymaeker (former Belgian ambassador in Zimbabwe). He even took some extra time and elongated his visit.
A small TV clip can be found here.

I don´t know. The official agenda reflects only a part of their work and there are some unofficial activities out of the public eye.
And both, Mathilde and Philippe, got a new advisor – so maybe they took a “training” period.

BTW I stumbled across some pics of Trooping the Colours in Bruges some weeks ago. (picturedesk)

I bet Prince Phillip is an entertaining guest with his reputation for quips!

How are the Duke of Brabant and the Duke of Edinbrough related

Marengo 10-02-2006 01:48 AM

Thanks Johann, I never knew that the Duke of Edinburgh went to Bruges, nice to see pictures of the event :)

-

To Royal Fan: The Duke of Edinburgh and the Duke of Brabant are only very distantly related, both are descendants from King Christian VIII of Denmark.

Christian VIII -> George I of Greece -> Andrew of Greece -> Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

Christian VIII -> King Frederik VIII of Denmark -> Pss Ingeborg of Sweden-> Astrid of Belgium -> King Albert II -> Phillipe, Duke of Brabant.

Economic mission to Canada, Nov. 5-10
 
Prince Philippe chairs an Economic mission to Canada. The mission begins on November 5th and will stop in Toronto, Ottawa and Montréal. Princess Mathilde will not accompany her husband this time round. (Source: monarchie.be)

what happened to mathilde....

how is it she si not going with philippe. i think her presence is a charming 'point' towards the economic mission. probably she wants to stay with the kids, and is busy on her own.

selminha 10-02-2006 02:25 PM

It is a pitty. They form one equipe formidable!!!!!

adelaide 10-02-2006 03:36 PM

Johann, may be I'm wrong, but in your thread 42 the prince of Brabant's shots show us Philppe de Belgique with an very unformal look for an official act! As many young buiseness man is he adopted the "casual" attitud to work?

I don’t think so. We rarely see Philippe without a tie, so you don’t have to be concerned. ;)
The open enterprise day is an informal event. More than 1 million curious Belgians had a look inside factories and companies, almost everyone was in casual clothes – so Philippe opted for a less official outfit too and surely wasn’t underdressed.

Thanks johann for the info and pics

Phillippe looks so handsome in this pic!:wub:

sorry for the inconvenience :blush:

princess gertrude 10-03-2006 07:01 PM

I absolutely love Mathilda's brown suit, very flattering and very hip! Also, I must say that I like Phillipe's "casual" turtleneck outfit. It is very becoming on him and doesn't make him look so "stuffy", very approachable. Bravo to the both of them!

johann 10-04-2006 01:24 PM

New family pics!!! (Belga) They have been taken yesterday in the parc of Laeken to mark Emmanuel´s first birthday.
