I hope that now Mathilde will receive the Bandeau tiara as well from her mother in law...and the Spanish wedding gift Tiara from Queen Fabiola of course. but this is another topic...


The new queen is wearing only the bandeau from the nine provinces tiara which queen Paola probably gave to her now. Paola did wear the tiara to events outside Belgium. I hope (like Marchesina) that the new queen will get the Queen Elisabeth's Diamond Bandeau and the Spanish wedding gift tiara but I think this would only happens when the other queens die

Both are very elegant people and it shows in the portrait.

Positively stunning!

Im not fond of the new official pictures at all. they both look very stiff in them. Moreover I don't get why they're pictured against a grey wall, quite weird to me. The garden picture seems like they ere photoshoped on.

The abdication official pictures were lovely and very real, they should of done something similar.

I do think the first official photos of a new king and queen should be formal and indeed I think the couple should look stiff, bold and strong, without a hint of informality in the way they stand and in their faces, since the images are representative of the gravity and importance of the role they now have.

The composition of the pictures was very clever, in that the new king and queen stand ahead with the capital city of Brussels forming the background. Whilst the grey wall background is rather stark, it does, I think, reflect a quality of light that enable the viewer to see the new king and queen with great clarity and purity, unblemished by distracting chandeliers or velvet curtains.

The photos are reflective of the fact that the Beligian monarchy has a certain austerity about it, a no-nonsense institution. Naturally, there will be other photos and indeed appearances by Philippe and Mathilde that show their vibrancy, sense of fun and informality and of-course their unassuming characters that have made them very popular.

I also like the fact that the photos are nice and different from the opulant ones done for Willem Alexander and Maxima (which I adore and think are wonderful) - it's nice to see different monarchies doing things their own way!

Well, that's my take on it anyways!

Are they not supposed to?

amaryllus 07-24-2013 10:02 AM

security/safety reasons I would imagine. if something happened to the plane,you don't want your whole royal family dead or hurt.

maria-olivia 07-24-2013 02:45 PM

Sorry , I just heard they did travel separately to France yesterday.

Although Philippe and Mathilde are of my favourite royals, I think their holidays immediately after Philippe's enthronement is not right. They could go in August.

I think it was the only time possible. Philippe has to come back to work in August because of some official engagements that were already planned for King Albert and I suppose Mathilde and he will have to prepare with their team the Welcoming Tour (aka Joyeuses Entrées)

King Philippe and Queen Mathilde attended the historical religious procession Hanswijk Cavalcade through the streets of Mechelen today, September 1, 2013. The procession takes place every 25 years.

Philippe looks so happy and handsome :wub: and even if I don't like the color on Mathilde, she's the kind of woman who can pull off nearly everything she wears :lol:

She has worn this magnificent brooch before, in Albert and Charlene's wedding and the dutch Abdication dinner. She also used it as a hair ornament in the pre-wedding dinner of William and Kate. It was a gift from Queen Fabiola to Mathilde.
And as far as I know it's not for the consort.

Thanks for the photos!
King Philippe looked comfortable in his new role.
