I have come to admire and adore this couple (King Albert and Queen Paola) more every day. I'm so glad that they did not cave in years ago when things weren't going so well. They look so content and relaxed with each other, and I can definately see that they truely care for one another. On another note, Maria-Laura is growing into a beautiful young woman, the spitting image of her mother (actually I think Maria-Laura is more attractive at this age then her mother was). Astrid is still a stunning woman as well, IMO she gets better with age!

They're all so good looking especially Amedeo !!!!!!:wub:

indian princess 06-07-2008 03:28 AM

maria laura looks so pretty...n her brother..amadeo gets more irresistable by the minute....gosh he's a real life adonis...

Marengo 06-07-2008 06:00 AM

I wonder, is this still part of the Queen Elisabeth Concours? I thought that ended last week at the concert that was attended by Queen Fabiola.

Nice to see that princess Astrid is bringing her too eldest children, though I might be too much of a cynic to presume that the recent revelations of the former nanny might have triggered this...

indian princess 06-07-2008 06:15 AM

i was thinking along the same lines too....maybe she wanted to show some kind of united family front....it suits the timing too....amadeo usually is never seen much in the press

Moonmaiden23 06-09-2008 12:03 PM

Astrid's children are just blossoming...Amadeo is a young god! It's amazing to me that he does not get as much publicity in Europe as certain other young Princes...he is so much hotter than William and Harry. But he is also much more low key perhaps.

i completey agree with you....if he weren't smart(he went to LSE that must mean his IQ is abnormaly high as royalty goes) he'd still get a job as a model or maybe as an italian actor.....the world deserves to know this god....

royalwatcher77 06-19-2008 08:10 PM

You don't need a high IQ to get into LSE.. They have reserved seats for such people. Lets hope Amedeo didnt get through in that way..

It appears that Crown Princess Mathilde and Princess Claire enjoyed the chance to lively converse with each other. I am glad to see Queen Fabiola attending the lunch.

Someone should introduce the writer to Queen Paola.

Obviously the "News in Pix" editor should have run this by his or her counterpart in the "Royalty & Statesmen" section. I might not be shocked to see an error like this from another publication, but I am surprised to see such a glaring mistake from Hello! given their regular coverage of Royalty.

Thanks for the photos!
Crown Princess Mathilde and Princess Claire seems to be friendly in a warm way. They happily chatted during the lunch on the 26th of May as well as their interaction during the engagement on the 28th of May has not got any formal stiffness. Relationships between Princess Astrid and Crown Princess Mathilde appear to be polite in a formal way, I would say.

maria-olivia 05-28-2009 04:04 PM

Normally the King and the Queen should be there to. Perhaps they are in Italy for the Queen's brother in law - Baron Ricasoli - funerals ?

MAfan 05-28-2009 04:15 PM

The funeral had been some days ago...I think on 25 may...

MAfan 05-28-2009 04:26 PM

I'm sorry, it was on 19 may, in Florence; the same day when the entire Royal Family except Prince Laurent attended a lunch, maybe connected to the Queen Elisabeth Music Competition, if I remember correctly.
