I can't say that the artit was very succesfull with the buste of Grace Kelly, the neck seems unnaturally long for example.

That is not a rumor luckily, just an poster at a neigbouring board with a creative mind, some wishful thinking at best (like I used to hope my CP would end up with Infanta Cristina ;)).

Anyway, I believe Prince Albert left Belgium by now, a pity that there weren't pictures of the dinner or anything comparable. I would have liked to see Mathilde in gala again, I wonder if the jewels she used at the 40th birthday of the Prince of Orange are actually hers (and she didn't have an opportunity to wear them afterwards).
