According to ' het belang van limburg' there will be extra security for Queen Fabiola again. Apparently she is still receiving death threats.

Also no Willem tell apple or anything of this kind this year. The royal security demanded her not to make jokes with her aggressor. A sad situation, especially since Fabiola is said to be fed up with the extra security. :sad: However, better be too careful than heading for a drama caused by a sick maniac.

Wonderful, thanks so much iceflower.:flowers: Why these death threats against Queen Fabiola? She has never been controversial in her life and yet there is/are sick individuals that have to gain attention in a perverted fashion instead of doing something useful with his/hers/their lives. In addition, to threaten an elderly lady is cowardly.

I never really appreciated how beautiful Mathilde was! She is stunning! :flowers:

Sometimes she's the lovely woman next door and then she's as
beautiful as today again, I think that makes her so special.. :smile:


Here's a great gallery with many big pictures:

Do we have pictures of Laurent, Claire and Astrid and Lorenz attending the mess this morning?

Lumutqueen 07-21-2010 11:42 AM

I've looked at all the previous threads, and I couldn't see pictures of them attending the mass in previous years. Unless the pictures were the ones I could not access, do they always attend?

Yes they always attend but in various cities. The King, Queen, Queen Fabiola and Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde go to Brussels every year.

Laurent and Claire and Astrid and Lorenz always go to other cities. This Year Hasselt and Aarlen.

Ahh thank you for the information. That seems like quite a nice idea.

Melibea 07-21-2010 12:10 PM

Mathilde looks beautiful in the parade, I can't wait to see the whole outfit!

Al_bina 07-21-2010 12:11 PM

Thanks for the photos!
It is nice to see Crown Princely couple interacting with people in the crowd and Queen Fabiola making a public appearance.

Melibea 07-21-2010 12:17 PM

Claire outfit looks ok, Mathilde is the only one that changed her outfit for the parade
