It seems that Prince Laurent and Princess Claire were absent. Hardly surprising these days I suppose.
Nice to see Princess Esmeralda and Princess Lea on the front row though. And it seems that from Luxembourg there were Archduchess Marie Astrid, Archduke Carl-Christian, Prince Guillaume and his wife Princess Sibilla.

It looks like she were blaming the fate that her brother has four children and for her offspring there is no chance to take the throne.

Well, it has been almost 17 years (since Elisabeth's birth) that her family has lost any chance to get on that throne. I think it is about time to let that resentment go, if that's the case. If she has anything against her brother's choice of wife (which is something I often read on FB comments or things like that), I think Astrid - and the rest of the family - should consider the great support Mathilde has been for Philippe all over the years.

Btw it is good to see most of the family attending the Mass this year. Despite differences and bad relationships, respect for the family and those who are no longer with us should always come first.

The best place to see our Royals, everybod is working and the Church of Laeken is far away from the center of Brussels.

As many thing regarding the Belgian royal family, protocol and dress code aren't quite clear ... in the past royal ladies all wore hats, but in recent years, it has been rather a personal choice.

Prince Laurent absence was no real surprise and probably a blessing in disguise for his family at the Mass,nice to see Princesses Leah and Esmeralda-Marie with old king Albert and queen Paola.

She used a walking stick last year, too.

The caption of the above posted scan says they were on (or around) the island Corsica.
