Queen Mathilde of Belgium looks on during the 22nd Annual Crystal Awards at the opening of the World Economic Forum in Davos on January 19, 2016. More than 40 heads of states and governments attend the WEF in Davos, which this year is focused on "mastering the fourth Industrial Revolution," organisers said.

Oh no way too much foundation. She looks orange.

Ban Ki Moon has appointed Mathilde as UN ambassador for sustainable development goals. Victoria of Sweden got the same job.

Why aren't the female members of the BRF like the Duchess of Cornwall associated with international organizations as other European royals (e.g. Mathilde, Maxima,Victoria, etc.) are ?

Matilde de Bélgica rompe a llorar en una visita oficial | loc | EL MUNDO

Mathilde started crying when she talked to a boy with a completely burnt face & arm and his mother :(

I can totally relate to her that way, she is a mother and we just cannot stand children suffering that way, she knows this is going to mark his entire life :(

Seriously, before reading the El Mundo article, I had never heard that Mathilde was known in Belgium as an "ice queen" with an "inordinate obsession with power". Where did the article get that from ?
