Joachim was living in South Africa last I heard.
Thank you, when did Luisa move to London?

What is the legislation making an exception for the king and queen?

I concur with Somebody that it seems more essential that the future head of state should appear neutral than the spouse of the head of state.

Luisa moved a couple of weeks ago, after finishing her degree in Canada. She's studying Law at BPP University.

Happy to see our Royal Family ,King Albert II , the non smiling Princess Astrid and the non attendence of Prince Laurent and Princess Claire.
Prince Laurent should have come if his Father was not there.

I didn't miss Prince Laurent but it would have been nice to see Princess Claire and children there.

I wonder why Princes Gabriel and Emmanuel did not smile at all.

Lovely to see King Albert with King Philippe and Princess Astrid at the Christmas concert. Should we see it as a show of support and family unity after the Delphine Boël court case ?

Paola is apparently still recovering in Brussels. That's the reason why Albert was present. All the other Christmases were spent in Italy.

Yes Hanelore you are right. But Queen Poala went to a Concert recently and looked well. She could have come to the Royal Palace. But???
