Shorter than the other years because the artists may have other appointments.

Love seeing this event every year

I also like Mathilde brings her kids with her to certain events of it. Good exposure while still something they should enjoy. I believe they all play music.

Elisabeth and Gabriel play the piano, and Eleonore plays violin. Not sure what musical instrument Emmanuel plays.

It was a free day and Gabriel had to go to an official Event. He was not that happy!

It was Emmanuel, not Gabriel (but I sm sure yours was just a mistake). Anyway I don't find him sad at all, just a young boy who understand where he is and how to behave. Surely we'll see other members of the family attending, as usual, during the final sessions.

The President of the Jury said before : Madame /Mevrouw now Votre Majesté;
He has sincere thanks for what the Queen is doing for the Queen Elisabeth Competition.
The 12 finalist are known and between them two belgian Ladies. Bravo !

Didn't Queen Mathilde say publicly that she preferred to be addressed as Majesté rather than Madame ?

I watched the competition yesterday during the proclamation of the finalists and he called Mathilde "Majesty/Majesté". Same for the hostess of the evening.

Yes at the Louvre Lens Museum in France. It was because Queen Fabiola was still alive and we had 3 Queens.

Princess Louise attended last year too.
I really hope tonight we'll see the Queen with both Elisabeth and Gabriel, since they didn't go to any other session till now.
