I wonder why Queen Mathilde's sons are always wearing those red pants. Is it an European fashion thing ? I couldn't imagine kids in North America wearing that.

Emmanuel could also get a more contemporary hairstyle IMHO.

How nice. Why is that? A British contestant perhaps? The Duchess and her husband were also present when Queen Elisabeth II received the Belgian king and queen during their introduction visit.

We were used to see different Members of the Royal Family during the Queen Elisabeth Music Competition. Queen Fabiola was often seen with her Luxembourg Nieces or others. Queen Paola invited her Children , the King came also.
Now this week it is the Final , I doubt if we will see Princess Astrid or her Chlldren, Prince Laurent ? Princess Léa ??? King Albert II ????
But they invited the Duchess of Gloucester nobody knows here in Belgium.
On that same day we will see for the first time Queen Poala and her daughter Princess Astrid in the Greenhouses of Laeken.

Queen Paola is not expected to attend any of the concerts, she isn't listed at the schedule the Palace has provided.

You are most welcome, maria-olivia! Unfortunately there are no pics of Astrid and Lorenz's attendance..I've only seen a screenshot of a news clip..


Yesterday, May 31, Queen Mathilde attended a final together with the Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Sarvath al-Hassan of Jordan:

Glad to see the three ladies together. Is it known if there was a particular reason for the attendance of the Duchess of Gloucester and of Princess Sarvath?

The concours often attract royal visitors. Last year Queen Máxima suddenly popped up next to Queen Mathilde, enjoying laureates playing at the concours. We may assume the guests at least like classic music... ;-)

The Duchess of Gloucester is President of the Royal Academy of Music, she must take some interest in classical music, and maybe some of the contestants study in London...

It's a pity that we didn't get any proper pics of the latest finals with Astrid and Lorenz on Tuesday, Mathilde and Gabriel on Thursday (thanks for the screenshots, Marchesina!). Laurent and Claire attended a final together with Louise yesterday, he posted three pics on his Twitter account:

You're welcome it's a pity indeed, I don't remember a lack of pics in the previous editions of the Concours, it's a bit odd to be honest.
I saw a footage from the RTBF website and Laurent was wearing earplugs during the concert.

That's Laurent... I remember that in previous years there have been finals without press coverage before, still it's always a pity..


Yesterday, June 3, Queen Mathilde was present together with Princess Elisabeth and fortunately some nice photos were taken
