Indian models display handcrafted diamond jewellery from ORRA at a fashion preview in Bombay, 15 March 2005. Belgian company ORRA-part of the world's largest diamond manufacturing company Rosy Blue, will showcase their dazzling display of handcrafted diamond jewellery at a fashion show 17 March, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Belgo-Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry(BICCI) which will be attended by the Belgian royal couple Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde.

March 16, 2005: Princess Mathilde visited the ruins of Hampi.

By the way, she is in Karnataka, a state in the Southern part of India. Whereas, Philippe is probably still in New Delhi meeting with the ministers. She must have travelled down there for the day to visit the ruins.

Several pics of when they toured the Metro.

Metro has newly opened in New Delhi, so its still a "Big Thing", therefore they were being shown around and also given a ride in the Metro.
