As far as I can see, the first annual reception (January 13) was held for the diplomatic corps. What about the second one (January 15)?
 
Both Queen Paola and Princess Mathilde looked very well...

It's been a reception for representatives of the NATO,
Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, NATO Secretary General,
members of the NATO International Secretariat and
military representatives of the NATO have been present.
 
Thanks for informatio! :flowers: NATO reception makes sense because the above organization's headquarters are in Brussels.
 
Wow, what a huge and interesting broche, this dragon-fly-broche! Well, I would like to have one like this, even if it was very small!:lucky:
 
Lovely photos! I never knew that NATO's headquarters were in Brussels. Thank you, Iceflower (and Paty) for the photos and information.

How many New Year's receptions does the BRF typically have?

I've no idea, I'm sorry, but I guess that one could have been one of the last ones.

Here are two nice additions to the pics from yesterday:

Great pictures, iceflower. It does not have more photos?

Extremely lovely Princess Mathilde.

A very elegant outfit.
 
The Crown Princely couple's radiant looks might indicate that they enjoyed this reception. Prince Laurent was obviously glum. I wounder why.

Queen Paola looks fantastic! Does anyone know what this exhibition was? It looks like it may have been geared toward children.
