Thank you again, *Mara*! From what I could properly understand in Dutch, it was a very nice article. A somewhat "tricky" question: Who is who in the picture showing Queen Paola's three nieces? Anyway, the lady on the left bears a striking resemblance to Princess Astrid i.m.o. -just take a look at that smile...

You are welcome! Your question is indeed tricky and I can´t answer it properly. I once saw them talking on tv and I have a vague memory that the woman in the middle is Emanuela, but I could be completly wrong. And you are right, the lady on the left looks alot like Astrid.

I assume that this meeting was much more recreative for King Albert than his political dialogue with the conciliator Vande Lanotte on the same day...

Do you know that the Belgians had to vote for the most important person of the year.
The result of the votes is HM King Albert II. Well done

The Belgian magazine "Royals" has dedicated a whole article to King Albert II as the Belgian of the year 2010 :smile:. According to that article, nearly 75% of the readers of "Paris Match Belgique", "La Dernière Heure/Les Sports", "La Libre Belgique" and RTL/TVI had voted for his majesty -albeit one must consider the fact that all the above mentioned media relate to the French speaking community. Nevertheless, we can see the king just on the cover of the Flemish "Royals"-edition ;):Deze maand

Unfortunately, due to a severe cold Queen Paola wasn't able to attend the concert organized by the association LUCIA (which provides timely financial aid to young families in crisis) in Brussels yesterday : Het Nieuwsblad - Koningin Paola sukkelt met zware verkoudheid
I hope that the queen recovers very soon...

Thanks for the pictures. Lovely to see them interacting with the public and having a nice event together instead of all the political stuff.
