Thank you for the tip Alejandra, but I think Rex Features has changed their policy so that even the News picturse can't be enlarged. :cry:

And thank you Cathérine Bergeyck for all these additional great pics of the Polish visit. :flower:

i think mathilde looks like claudia schiffer, anyone ??

Cathérine Bergeyck 11-22-2003 05:31 PM

Yes, I sometimes think so too, especially when she has her hair loose...

Here's another pic from Poland (but not with loose hair ;) )

Btw, did you know that prince Philippe did something quite romantic...At a galadinner in Poland, Philippe held a speech for 400 people, he also adressed his wife saying: 'Mathilde, since you married me 4 years ago, you've made me happier every day. You're a sincere wife and a great mother to our two children. I have to thank Poland, because Mathilde is half Polish...'

I didn't realize Mathilde was part Polish.

Anyhow, a lovely story Cathérine Bergeyck about Phillippe's speech to his wife. What a true romantic! :heart: Especially the "happier every day" part.

Very romantic of Phillippe to say what he did about Mathilde and Poland! :heart: I wonder how much Polish the crown princess speaks? I would imagine some and does anyone know if Phillippe's speech was given in Polish?

Cathérine Bergeyck 12-06-2003 08:52 AM

Philippe's speech was given in English.

Mathilde speaks very little (or none at all) Polish. Her mother never taught her children the language.

Mathilde does speak French, Dutch, English and Italian.
Philippe speaks French, Dutch, English, German, Spanish and Italian (his mother is Italian). But no Polish ;)
