Princess Elisabeth looks like she's all set and ready to go, where Prince Gabriël's facial expression is the opposite. It's priceless, looking like "I'm so over these photoshoots "

Elisabeth seems to be wearing her mother's Cartier diamond earrings.

It's in one of the previous posts. Eleonore played with a few others and Emanuel on his own.

Lovely photos and great that the Belgian children performed at the concert, I know the family is quite musical. Eleonore looks so grown up! It would've indeed have been nice to see Elisabeth play, but perhaps she's given up the piano, especially now she's at the military academy.

I guess the younger ones had a bit more time to practice for the christmas concert. Elisabeth clearly wouldn't have time and isn't Gabriel in his final year of high school (and he is probably a bit less willing to play on national television - which I wouldn't blame him for)?

Knack, a Belgian serious current affairs magazine in Dutch language named 2020 an Annus Mirabilis for King Philippe. The year in which he was able finally to throw off the image of a goof, a whimp, a clumsy or wooden prince. His public reception of his half-sister Delphine was telling for the King's confidence in himself. In Knack insiders at the Court pointed to Queen Mathilde and his close-knit children, as the source of empowerment to the King.

Can't agree more. Belgium has a great king and an even more greater queen, and it shows.
And we all know the task was not easy ...

Receiving Delphine during 3 Hours will remain one of the best Events for this year for our King Philippe
He did the first step which allowed his Father King Albert II to invite Delphine at Belvedère Castle.

Front Page of Paris Match : Paola la mal aimée . I did not bought it and can't tell you why.

On TV yesterday evening and to day : the Queens of the Belgians.

Also his behavior and his family's during the pandemic has been absolutely amazing: visiting prisons, nursing homes, hospitals, taking flowers and waffles to make their lives a bit more bearable, very active on Skype, getting the kids to call elderly people who were alone, openly discussing mental issues with young people, etc.

Philippe has proven his mettle as a great king, a great leader for his nation, he has a great queen by his side and his children are growing up to be amazing people, very well rounded and aware of their position but still had the opportunity to be "normal" teenagers in a way, much better raised than Philippe and his siblings were.

Here's a video of the whole Christmas show "Christmas with 11 millions" (Belgium currently has a population of 11 millions people), including a speech of King Philippe.

The family was filmed during Christmas visits to social communities. Gabriel and Eléonore volunteered in a neighborhood grocery store and warehouse, Elisabeth and Emmanuel visited the Home Saint Josep and Philippe and Mathilde visited the L'Arche community in Namur.

What an outstanding job they have been doing, I think it's the best in all European monarchies.

I love how they worked a lot with nursing homes, getting young people like Elisabeth and Emmanuel there is such an injection of goodwill and energy for those in the homes, I love how they were talking to the old lady who said she was a pianist and Emmanuel was like "oh I love music too, I play the saxo", such a lovely moment.

I loved the injection of energy and goodwill that two youngsters can bring to a nursing home.

And Gabriel + Eleonore at the food bank, helping as well.

Excellent stuff.

Queen Mathilde cancels her visit to Mons today:

"The reason given by communications officials at the Royal Palace is "a potential case of Covid from an associate of the Queen," said the Royal Palace. "As a precaution, it was considered preferable to postpone it to a later date yet to be defined.""
