They do look great, but I'm wondering what makes a person look Polish?  Thinking I'm Polish myself and I'm curious what you mean by that! Smiley

I don't think she meant Polish as the country; I think she meant Polish in pol.ish --- a refined state. That's how I interpret it.

Wow, I love the new photos - the styling and the background especially is superb IMO I wished they'd use less photoshop though.

Looks like the exact same shade of blue that her BFF Max wore when she became Queen? (Not a complaint, just a comment.)

Sorry, I can't remember--was Max'x investiture gown by Satan? Is this gown Mathilde is wearing for the formal portraits by Satan?

In any case, Satan must be rubbing his hands with glee--he's now the favorite designer of 2 European queens, plus greatly favored by the GD family of Lux. And most (tho not all) of his clothes absolutely suck  Dead

Classy couple - this new King Philippe and Queen Mathilde.
Photographer, Marina Cox, did well in capturing their dignity.
I sincerely hope that they are beneficial for Belgium.
It seems appropriate that Mathilde wears the Nine Provinces tiara.  Thumb up
 
I also hope that their children cope with the change in dynamics in their family life while they are still quite young.

I will miss seeing pictures of Albert and Paola especially.

Out of interest, what would've happened if Phillipe had not refused the government's dismissal? Is it like if the Queen refuses a new PM over here and the whole country is under the Army for a bit?
Probably the ministers of state take over. I will try to find it out, it's interesting to know indeed.


Re the government, during their audience yesterday many federal ministers went on the balcony, took pictures and started waving like the royals, just like giggling schoolkids. And then they realized there were still TV cameras filming the balcony and they made a quick jump back into the palace.  Laughing

Philippe started the overdue reorganisation of the court and appointed new advisors yesterday.
The new chief of cabinet is an absolute heavyweight and served European President Van Rompuy as chief of cabinet until last year. General consensus is that Philippe couldn't have found a better person for this job. The press department will be larger and more professional than it was under Albert. Albert's spokesman is dismissed; makes many journalists happy cause he really wasn't up to the job. Hope they start their work immediately, the courts homepage is one big mess and needs an complete overhaul. There was also criticism that no persons of immigrant origin were employed. This is a thing of the past now as Philippe asked a young woman with Turkish roots to serve at the PR department.
Philippe's old department, the House of the Duke and Duchess of Brabant ceased to exist and will be re-activated when Elisabeth joins the royal business. There's a new House of King Albert. He keeps one of his trusted former staff members and Paola keeps her lady-in-waiting. Paola and Fabiola both have ladies-in-waiting. There's no information so far if Mathilde continues this tradition, I wouldn't be surprised if she doesn't cause she has been more on the no-nonsense side so far.

Don't forget that he's already working on two future Queens as well. He designed their outfits for their Papa's investitures.
