On October 4, 2011, at Château de Laeken His Majesty King Albert II of Belgium had an audience with Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff.  After the meeting there was a nice luncheon at the château in honor of President Rousseff’s visit.  Also in attendance was Her Majesty Queen Paola, T.R.H.s Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde, T.R.H.s Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz, and Queen Fabiola.

Later that afternoon members of the Belgian royal family along with President Rousseff attended the opening of the Europalia Brazil Festival and exhibition at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels.  In case you were wondering why Prince Laurent, aka Peter Griffin, did not grace his lovely presence at the luncheon or at the festival, well, he wasn’t invited.  Why?  He’s still banned from the palace.
