Im not sure if this is the right thread:confused: it seems there are many royals from different coutries at the Astrid exhibition today and they should all be in the Belgium forum I belive? Just move it if it is the wrong place.

Nice surprise that Mathilde was there since her name was no longer on the list of Belgian royals, who were going to be at the event.

I was surprised to see how much Princess/Archduchess Marie-Astrid resembles her late mother.Wow! I had to look twice..hopefully we'll see more pics soon..
 
This is such a lovely event, it's incredible how vivid the image of Queen Astrid still is in our memories today, and I guess especially in Belgium she's still very much remembered. I wish we would have a special postage stamp issued if Astrid here in Sweden as well, but unfortunately The Post has been on other tracks and has instead issued other special editions this year... :(

Queen Silvia looked wonderful, I love her outfit and the necklace! Mathilde looked great as well, I love that deep aubergine-ish colour she's wearing! And Queen Fabiola is adorable as always, and still going strong. As is Grand Duke Jean, he looks very handsome still. It's nice to see the older generations.

Thanks to all who posted pictures! It looks like the Swedish royals are quite close to King Albert. It also looks to me like Mathilde is tired! Quite understandable.
 
Ok, lovely pictures and all, but can someone explain to me why--besides a great excuse for strengthening diplo ties between a few royal households who are related to each other via the person celebrated--this 100th b-day of astrid is being leveraged to build an event around?

I mean, as far as I'm aware, the Dutch don't celebrate King Willem's 300th b day, Wilhelmina's 100th, or whatever?? And the British don't invite everyone to mull over the 100 b day of King George?

Princess Astrid was the daughter of Prince Carl and Princess Ingeborg of Sweden. She married Prince (Later King) Leopold of Belgium and she is the mother of Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte of Luxembourg, King Baudoin, King Albert.

Astrid was the sister of Crown Princess Märtha, wife of King Olav of Norway and mother of King Harald, Princess Ragnhild and Princess Astrid of Norway.
 
Thanks lots for the pictures everyone, Queen Silvia looks really elegant most, and all of the Royals seem quite close, especially King Albert and Queen Silvia and King Carl Gustav, good friendship for them.
 
Thank you very much Mandy, I didn't understand it very well till I see your post.
Mathilde is recovering very well.
