  1. I did not realize Marie-Astrid was still alive, I think she's about 61 years old now.

    1. I recall way back before Prince Charles married Diana that there was hope that he and Astrid would get together; but that never went anywhere, because Astrid is Catholic. (Yes, I'm older than Astrid is.)

      Just last week Astrid was at the airport in my city demonstrating a Belgian invention for air travelers where they sit at a table and get some needed "exercise" by pedaling, which in turn charges their iPhones and laptops. Neat concept to counteract sitting so long on flights. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/belgian-princess-bike-power-1.3296830

  4. Maria Teresa looks so stylish despite her waight. I like her coat and almost everything she wears.

  5. I agree about Maria Teresa. That belt really defines her waist and she does look great!

  6. Yes she can wear everything, she did not look matronly. She has "it".

  7. More importantly Maria Teresa seems to be a lovely person, as well as being stylish.

  8. I find it interesting that Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume is getting more and more portly, yet no one has pointed it out. It just shows how the critique of physical attributes is solely relegated towards the royal women, which is a shame as overall we should focus less on (the negative aspects) of their physical attributes and more on their ability and work ethic.

    Forgive me for my unkind observations of Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, I thought it was a necessary evil to point out the inequality.
