Better late than never. I have no idea what the vaccination plan there is. Here, it's such a mess... and elderly are, alas, no priority.

I was thinking that. Even if they dont want to be seen to be getting special treatment, they are elderly and all elderly people you'd think would be being vacinncated by now...

Based on the information I was able to quickly find online, it seems that they are part of the rather broad category of 65+ (further divided according to age), for which vaccinations were expected to start in March. Only elderly living in care homes and health care workers were scheduled for the months January and February.

It's unfortunately quite normal for people in their age group to be vaccinated right now. Unfortunately, in continental Europe many people over the age of 80 (priority group!) have still not been vaccinated since enough vaccines, though ordered, have not been delivered yet. Whose fault that is exactly is a cause for contentious debate, but it's definitely not unusual.

I applaud them for not taking advantage of their position to get vaccinated earlier and for waiting in line with regular people at the vaccination centre.

Interesting , we don't have a lot of pictures of Bevedère Castle inside.
I love Queen Paola wearing a handbag at her home...

The maker of the second photo had more of an eye for composition
Would those tables to the right of the first one still be there?

All is done now and as they are both vaccinated they will leave Belgium for
a long holiday. They never attend our National Day on July 21th
