Crown Prince Philippe and Crown Princess Mathilde: February 2003 - February 2004
 
The royal court officially announced it. The baby is to be born in September. The due date is September 2. This is good news.

Wow! Thanks for the news, Sylvia! It's wonderful to see the family grow!

samitude 02-13-2003 07:51 PM

You're welcome! They seem like a wonderful family. I know this little one will be adorable, well-loved and cared for. I wonder if it will be a boy or a girl. I'm thinking another girl, but of course I don't know.

I kind of have the same feeling that it will be another girl, but who knows! ;) and I agree that Mathilde and Philippe seem like lovely people.

Philippe & Mathilde attended a charity concert at the Royal Academy of Music in Brussels, Belgium to benefit victims of the sex trade.

Great pics, Mandy. When is Mathilde due? Sometime this fall?

Mathilde wore this skirt on her and Phillippe's trip to the U.S. earlier this year. It reminds me of a cow, though. As lovely as Mathilde is (and absolutely glowing in these pictures) even she cannot pull off a cow print.

Her pants reminded me of a cow also. :D

I believe her baby is due in September.

More from Corbis at the same event. I love Mathilde's necklace. Nice way to carry the red up around her face and for some little pop of colour.

Who is the man to the right in the 2nd to last photo. It looks as if Phillipe is telling him to keep his hands off his wife :o ;)

Alexandria 04-28-2003 12:44 PM

The man you're referring to is King Juan Carlos of Spain. The picture was taken during Spain's state visit two (?) years ago.

And if Phillippe was trying to keep Mathilde away from the King, he probably had good reason! The King is a well-known ladies man. :P If you believe the gossip, he had an affair with Princess Diana of Wales and several other ladies.

Check out Mathilde's growing belly! And I love her bottoms - but not sure if it is a skirt or wide-legged pants. Very colourful at any rate!

www.ibl.se I think even Mathilde's checking her belly out! :P

Mathilde has got to be one of the most stylish moms-to-be I have ever seen. I'm sure she will get a big bouquet of flowers from Phillippe and Mathilde for Mother's Day this Sunday. :flower: (Is Mother's Day celebrated in Belgium? Or is that just a North American tradtion?)
