First day on the new job, thought they have grown out of their CP thread and started a fresh one.  Cool

K Philippe received the presidents of the senate, the chamber, the minister presidents of the regional governments and the prime minister and had lunch with the federal government. Tradition is that the PM offers the demission of the government and the king refuses.


Another episode of men will be men.  


And Q Mathilde also received her first guests, a group of proud youngsters who presented her with drawings made by viewers of the Flemish children's television channel Ketnet.

Still have to go through yesterday's thread because I was too hot and busy yesterday enjoy the mother of all barbecue parties  Beer
but I'm pleased to see them 'at work' right away.

The girl twins are cute! (would make great Louise dresses btw) Like the fact they're wearing Birkies to see the Queen - then again it's 32C/90F outside...

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?

I don't know if it's just the lighting, but her stockings look a bit dark for her. I've always found her to be one of the most tasteful dressers among the royal set. Boring at times, but never inappropriate. She wears clothing well.

New official portraits. I only like the first portrait of Mathilde, for the rest they took the stiff upperlip, poker face thing too extreme.   But the nine provinces tiara suits Mathilde marvellously,   I'm actually shocked to see her in a new tiara after 13 years.  Cool

The pictures are composed by the renown Belgian artist Marie-Jo Lafontaine

 in cooperation with the photographer Marina Cox.

Beautiful setting for their official photos. She seems to have opted to leave off the top prongs of the nine provinces tiara.

On a second glance the portraits grow on me.  Smiley I appreciate that they asked a well-known artist to work with them. Fabiola's waterfall brooch seems to be Mathildes now, that's great. And it also was a good idea to leave off the arches, the Nine Provinces looks much better this way.  Thumb up
