This is more a private than a public evenement: attending a Mass for the memory of deceased members of the family Van België/De Belgique/Von Belgien.

It would have been nice to see the whole family there, especially because it´s a family memorial service. However, I understand that with new king the whole situation is different.

To day at Florennes,more than 100 cars were parked in large meadows. It started raining so heavely that they could not drive anymore and one by one a tractor put their cars out of the meadow.

Have to kind of laugh at the boys. A bit of a mix on the old 'dress them the same'. If they were the same height, I would think they mixed and matched 2 suits. One in red jacket and navy pants, the other in navy pants and red jacket

Nice to see Philippe out with the boys at the event

It was nice to see Gabriel and Emmanuel with Philippe yesterday. Emmanuel looks so much like his father.

Emmanuel can't deny he's his father's son, he's like a little clone of Philippe: same eyes, bone structure, even the same hair!

Gabriel is growing a lot, I think he might end up being around Amedeo's height or even taller at the rate he's going.

They are all so handsome!
