Cute picture of Josephine-Charlotte, Baudouin, Albert and their spouses in the newspaper today.
Thanks for posting that photo! I believe Princess Astrid had a simular photo made with her own family. And I remember that the children of Empress Zita also posed for pictures like this.
Indeed, you could see the photo of Princess Astrid's family when she was interviewed recently: clip
Old pictures ..

Family tradition? :flowers:

On the occasion of Emperor Akihito's abdication the Palace has shared some photos of meetings between the then reigning Belgian couples and the Imperial couple:

:previous: Is the lady who is holding Princess Astrid at her 1962 baptism a midwife?
I remember Prince Laurent did not want to join them at the Vatican.
