    1. Well, the kids do not look very interested at all. And I doubt if this is a beautiful place to spend Christmas vacation in our times. But I bet they are not at a cheap mass-accomodation.
      Beautiful colours and look for the Queen!

  4. Such a nice family, no dramas. Makes you sort of wonder if the siblings are always so loving towards each other all the time!

  6. Private guides, special sites to visit, and they don't get jam-packed into ordinary tourist buses. Must be nice.

  9. How lovely - what an interesting break and nice to have a bit of sunshine. Lucky that they can have the guides and a more personalised visit. I do like the Queens coat.

  10. Lovely family. Yes, European old world money, but, more importantly, European old world class. Not all people will have class, dignity and deep kindness. That’s what shines through every time we see this family.

    1. Like the "old money" from Leopold I.? The Belgian royals were alway very keen on Egyptology, by the way.
