TRH Princess Mathilde and Prince Philippe of Belgium held a lovely  reception at the royal palace in Brussels for the Council of the Chairmen of Business Europe.

It’s not a flashy fun event that I usually am interested in, but I thought I would start reporting more about this kind of boring couple for those who may be interested in their activities.

  1. They do seem to be a very boring couple! I would like to follow them more but I just can’t seem to be bothered. I always wondered about the choice of Princess Mathilde as Godparent to Princess Isabella of Denmarkk. As I haven’t heard much of a connection between the two couples.

    1. Honestly, there isn’t much connection, that I know of, between the two royal houses. To me, the honor given to Crown Princess Mathilde was done out of courtesy rather than true friendship.

      It’s funny because I see the Belgium royal family quite often on TV5 (a French network which airs on Time Warner Cable here in LA) all the time. I would like to know more about them, but as you said… boring. The family just doesn’t grab my interest like other royal and princely houses.
