Mathilde looks quite nice so far and I'm really liking the effort she is putting into her hair, it looks really nice lately. Not sure what I think of those red heels, she is quite tall and can get away without such high heels.

Is there a detailed program me out on the trip?

iceflower 10-22-2011 11:02 AM


I've tried but haven't been able to find a programme..I remember a similar visit where we didn't
have detailed information either.

On today's agenda have also been a visit of CP Philippe and CP Mathilde to the Pavilion of Heralding
Spring of the Summer Palace in Beijing, Mathilde has attended the opening Ceremony of the Exhibition
'Belgian Architecture and Arts in China' at the architecture Design and Research Institute of Tsnghua
University in Beijing.

The economic mission to China appears to be successful. It comes as no surprise though. Crown Prince Phillipe and Crown Princess Mathilde are very seasoned in such missions. I am sure Crown Princely couple enjoyed interacting and conversing with the Chinese side.
