By this time, the royal couple must be on vacation...
Does anyone know where? :)

Always in CHateauneuf de Grasse (south of France) - Their new ship is called ALPA (Albert and Paola).
They are going to marketplaces , the King is driving his motorbike without bodyguards, they are bying their newspapers in the shops like eveybody on holiday..
But their house has now a gate and I am sure that during their stay belgian and french police guards are doing their job.
They are never pictures of the whole family to gether ; their children are free to go where they want to.

fancatt 08-15-2010 07:55 AM

Thanks, maria-olivia :)
Ah yes, I had heard about the new boat with their name, is sweet...
Well, they deserve some privacy.
But, do you know if there is here in the forum some vacation photos from previous years?

In St Tropez they have their bodyguards..

*Mara* 08-15-2010 11:09 AM

There are always bodyguards accompanying them, regardless where they are. And Albert stopped riding his motor bike years ago.

Here’s a picture gallery of their Villa "Le Romarin".
Le petit paradis de Chateauneuf
Throughout the year Albert and Paola spend many week/ends in this villa. There’s a concierge taking care of the estate when the royal couple is not staying in Châteauneuf. And the local policemen also keep an eye on it. Albert and/or Paola usually arrive on a private jet, operated by the Belgian air force. They have security agents, service staff, a chauffeur and a cook with them.
This Easter Prince Philippe and his family as well as Princess Claire and her children spent some time at “Le Romarin” with Albert and Paola. Prince Laurent preferred to stay at home.

Yes! She is adorable... :)

:previous:I absolutely agree with you, iceflower and fancatt:flowers:! Incidentally, I read a couple of commentaries on the website of another school which Queen Paola visited some time ago. Several children had written that they would have liked to take her home with them afterwards because they wanted to get to know her better -really sweet...

fancatt 10-03-2010 10:29 AM

Seriously? That's sweet :smile:
I believe that the Queen gets feedback from her visits, so she must be very happy...
By the way, do you know if there is any official visit planned? ***

Lina RdC 10-04-2010 09:06 AM

In spite of doubting that she has the time to read such nice website commentaries etc. concerning her own activities, I hope for a lot of positive feedback on-site... She could do with it i.m.o. because I often receive the impression that she is a very modest, rather shy person who tends to underestimate herself.
Official visits, hmmm, I guess you mean state visits? Since neither De Belgische Monarchie - La Monarchie belge - Die Monarchie in Belgien - The Belgian Monarchy nor our dear iceflower has announced anything so far, we'll have yet to be patient:whistling:.

Belgium's Queen Paola walks in the gardens of the Royal Palace in Brussels surrounded by spouses of leaders attending the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) October 4, 2010. European Union and Asian leaders will agree on Tuesday to boost domestic demand and investment through gradual liberalisation of domestic and international markets, a draft statement from their two-day meeting showed.

Funny to see them in the "Salle du Trône" where King Albert II 's ancestors gave Balls!
Their Ladies or husbands where lucky to visit with Queen Paola the famous Laeken' s Glasshouses-
The whole Center of Brussels was closed 45 head of States!

le_ptit_diablotin 10-04-2010 07:40 PM

Yes, I've been visited this famous Laeken' s Glasshouses, the one of the world most beautiful garden... amazing place, only opened during one month between April and May, yes only one month, but also open during the evening.

And I am so proud of our Belgian Royal Family !

I also have this impression... but you know, I think it is exactly this "image" of her I find most adorable :flowers:
