Queen Paola's 80th Birthday
 
Queen Paola 80 th Birthday .
I was at the Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth on the Road. How vulnerable were they only polices before the cars and not behind.
They were different cars, for the first car I waved and had a Man's answer , The second big family car was completely dark , I suppose it was the King's family , another car and I saw very well laurent's twins in the last car.
I suppose Iceflower will provide nice pictures.

I was on the way of the Royal Music Chapel and saw their cars. I only saw Prince Laurent twins because the other car were dark.
Only Polices before their cars and not behind . The Hour of the Event was kept Secret.

They are welcomed buy the Counts Bernard and Ivan de Launoit.
The birthday cake is from Wittamer who did all their Wedding cakes.

I can't see Prince Laurent in any of the photos,perhaps he was having a chat with Madame Maria Olivia ;)

maria-olivia 06-29-2017 02:43 PM

Royal Family of Belgium - Current Events Part 8 (July 2013 -)
 
Having heard the stories about the bad family relations, I can't help but notice that Filip and Mathilde's children don't mingle with their cousins and that their parents ignore Astrid, Lorenz, Claire and King Albert.

What a beautiful cake Paola received!

The Queen's Birthday cake looked fantastic,great to see most of the royal family present.

maria-olivia 06-29-2017 03:56 PM

Did you notice cdm the green scarabées on the cake , the same as the Ceiling of Brussel's Royal Palace?
You are right , on the family picture there was room for Astrid and Lorenz next to Queen Mathilde but they went behind !
Did you notice also how difficult King Albert II is walking ?

That's what I have always noticed. Philippe's children looks like strangers among their own family, which is kind of sad. Also, in the past I've seen Mathilde being extremely friendly with Claire (she was even chose to be Eleonore's godmother) and not a word between them.
I know it was a short appearance, but I can't help but thinking that the whole family is against Philippe and especially Mathilde (notice how no one went next to her to take the picture).
They tried so hard, but it was a really bad attempt of looking like a normal family and to be a party, it was really cold.

Maria Laura is missing as well.

It's great to see a lot of family members there to celebrate Paola's upcoming birthday. I wonder why they chose to celebrate in June?
All the children look so grown up - most of them aren't really children anymore! I still remember Elisabeth when she was only a year or two older than Eleonore is now. Now she has blossomed into a pretty, poised young lady. Little Anna Astrid is also adorable, it's nice that she came too.
That cake looks amazing!

Paola viert 80e verjaardag met gigantische taart... maar zonder Laurent
apparently date was chosen so all the family could attend before going off to the summerholidays

google translated

HereditaryPrincess 06-29-2017 05:22 PM

:previous: Thank you for confirming that, Lee-Z. That explains it - a nice idea.

maria-olivia 06-29-2017 06:10 PM

It was a day with a lot of trafic and a very difficult hour 6.30 pm.
On my way back home I saw a grey car with police , and it was in fact King Albert II and Queen Paola who did not come at the same time of the King.

Next to the Royal Music Chapel is an important School. It was its last day with delivery of the Students Notes also around 6.30 pm.

Prince Laurent arrived but too late. There is a second group picture where we can see him.

I wonder who is the Lady with its purple dress sittting next to the King ?

But all my best wishes to Queen Paola who was so happy to day.

It's a true masterpiece.
Bravo, Wittamer!
