That's quite an event, the whole family together...though I won't believe it until I'll see it.

Inauguration by the King and the Queen of the Exhibition of Charles , Count of Flanders King Albert I second Son..
I saw the Exibition . the Prince has been our Regent between 1945-1950 and did great work for Belgium until his Brother came back !
After he lived banned in Raversijde where he became a Painter and never saw his siblings and his Mother who always preferred Leopold to him.

I was told King Philippe was delighted about this Exhibition with Documents from the Royal Palace Archieves.
Our Royal palace is to visit for free until beginning September. Closed of Monday.

To day important Auction of a belgian famous bookseller.

The item 442 was 3 albums containing 3245 pictures and postcards of our Royal Family from King Leopold III and Queen Astrid (1385) King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola ( 650) Prince Albert of Liege (10).

On TV and in newspaper they spoke about that. The seller is not a member of the Royal Family but probably a relative of the royal photograph.

The whole story of our royal family whose low estimation between 1500 and 1800 euros was sold only 2000 euros. Unknown buyer , no telephone calls and no bit in the Auction House.

Yesterday I went in our Museées Royaux d' Art et d' Histoire MRAH in Brussels.
We have a new Found Jean Capart whose Président is HRH Princess Alexandra who was there too such as the Ambassador of Egypt in Belgium.
Jean Capart , our well know egyptologue went with Queen Elisabeth and Prince Leopold (Princess Esmeralda's Father) in Egypt the day after the discovery of Toutankhamon's Tomb.
They said the Queen was delighted but asked such a lot of questions disturbing the the Archeologues 's work. She did another visit and was adked not to come anymore!
We still have la Fondation Egyptologique Reine Elisabeh such as the world known Concours de Musique Reine Elisabeth.
Our greatest Queen !

Great to see the extended royal family attending the concert too, this year. Xmas should really be the time of the year for reconciliation and family unity.

Is she making a point or just not being caught smiling in the photographs released?

I am afraid she's doing it on purpose. It's not the first time...but it's an extremely childish behaviour. Anything she has against her brother, should be left at home.

Princess Astrid is the only one of our Royal Family who has a naturel smile but when she is with the King and the Queen she seems unhappy. She has to be there . What a sad Royal family we have !
