You are right ! The first pictures of Prince Philippe, Astrid and Laurent.
All the others outside on the Terrace..
When Albert was Prince de Liege Belvedère had no security. It was placed when Belvedère was the King's Palace.

Is Queen Paola connected with Gent, the Sint-Baafskathedraal or the new bishop?

No, King Albert II should be there , perhaps he was ill.
I am happy she came for this important and rare Event;

I wonder who was the lady with dark hair and glasses.

PS In this Cathedral you have the greatest painting ever : l'agneau Mystique de Jan Van Eyck found back in the salt mines after WW2

Private visit of King Albert and Queen Paola to the 65 degrees association in Brussels. This non-profit association, founded in 2018, pursues an objective of integration and professional training for people with mental disabilities.

Good for them. I wonder what prompted this little outing? It looks like they are with another couple. https://www.65degres.be/en
"65 degrees, non profit association founded in 2018, has a mission of inclusion of handicapped people in a great restaurant.
It employs a total of 10 employees, out of which 7 bear a mental handicap (Down Syndrom, Autism, ...)

​The main activity is commercial, but not for profit. Together with its staff, the restaurant's goal is to delight its customers with great food and even greater welcome. By choosing Avenue Louise as it's home, we are making a statement, that difference should be celebrated, not hidden or avoided."

Thumbs up


The other elder man is Count de Traux de Wardin.
He is, among others, the chairman of the Queen Paola Foundation.

They do know each other well and for a long time.
I don't know if the lady is his wife, I don't know her.

The project fits in with the atmosphere of the Queen Paola Foundation, but it can also be just a nice getaway with the four of them.
It is not an official event, nor reported on the official website of the Royal Family. It is just a private visit.

King Albert was scheduled to visit Volvo in Ghent today, March 11. But "considering the latest developments in relation to the Covid-19 and in the spirit of the recommendations of the authorities", the Palace has decided to postpone the visit, the item was removed from the agenda today.

It makes sense. All senior citizens are being advised to stay at home and avoid social contact. That should apply to royals too.



I know it is politically delicate for reigning monarchs like Elizabeth II, Margrethe II ot Harald V to limit social contact, but they should follow the same guidelines as other people in their age bracket.

Thank you both for the information.
A visit inspired by the foundation and an outing purely to socialize both seem like possible interpretations (as the official website does not always report charitable visits by members of the royal family), or alternatively, it could be a convenient combination of the two.
