Princess Mathilde's high patronage
 
Princess Mathilde grants her High Patronage to several associations working with vulnerable persons.

I've got the impression that it are quite a number of associations, let's take a look which ones it are exactly (unfortunately the website of the Belgian monarchy does not provide a list :()

There's the asociation "Europa Donna" that fights against breast cancer in the member states of the EU.

You can see a photo of Mathilde at their site

Mathilde was present at several of their meetings the past years, and handed out the first Europa Donna Award a few weeks ago.

Since Friday (today) princess Mathilde is allowed to call herself "special representant for children and aids". She accepted the function, that was offered to her by Unicef and Unaids.

Unicef is the children's organisation of the United Nations. The organisation received an honorary doctorate in Antwerp today.

Unaids is the UN's program that fights aids, it's presided by Belgian Peter Piot. Mathilde will mostly be involved in projects that deal with the protection of orphans and the fighting of aids.
