Princess Mathilde paid a visit to Brussels city district Les Marolles today. The reason for this visit is the 50th anniversary of the “Club de Jeunesse des Marolles” (=the local youth club). Mathilde took a closer look at some workshops and had conversations with the youngsters and their animators.

The “Club de Jeunesse des Marolles” tries to be the link between the children, teenagers and adults and assists the multicultural and intergenerational exchange between the inhabitants to lead to a better integration. The Marolles is known as a traditional working-class neighbourhood with many socially disadvantaged inhabitants (=unemployed persons, immigrants …). Lately, this district changes its original character and becomes more and more trendy and expensive. The Sint-Jan Berchmanscollege, the school of Elisabeth and Gabriel, is located here too.

Sister Morphine 09-22-2006 04:46 AM

I'll tell you one thing, you want your future queen to be good at ping-pong and foozball. This way, if a frat party ever breaks out in the palace, she's the girl you want on your team.

Emmily 09-22-2006 03:25 PM

She always seems so at ease and comfortable in any situation.

On the 19th of October Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde will visit an art exhibition in The Hague (The Netherlands) together with Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima.

It will be nice to see them together again.

Maxie 09-27-2006 04:16 PM

Does anybody know when the year of microfinance of the UN has ended? I hope both Maxima as Mathilde will continue their ambassadorship as they are doing a great job and seem very dedicated to it IMO.

kate2 09-28-2006 03:01 PM

I'm looking forward to seeing her again! And I agree, I also hope they both will continue their ambassadorship for microfinance.

The UN proclaimed the year 2005 as “Year of Microcredit”. So the main activities took place in 2005. The final report has been published this spring.
I guess you remember that Maxima accepted another finance related UN “job” ;) And Mathilde is UNAIDS/UNICEF special representative for Children and AIDS and still promotes microcredits as an effective development instrument too. So both are continuing their great work.

Princess Mathilde and Queen Fabiola paid a private visit to the Royal Museum for Art and History today. They admired the collection of Dora and Paul Janssen. The Janssen’s collected precolumbian art and their collection will now remain in Belgium since Dora Janssen reached an agreement with the Flemish government about the inheritance tax today. Mathilde and Fabiola have been guided through the exhibition by Dora Janssen herself.
To catch a glimpse follow this link and go to Vrijdag 29/09, 19u the clip starts at 21:30 min running time.
