On Saturday, September 17, 2016, Her Royal Highness Princess Camilla of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Duchess of Castro attended the 2016 Monte-Carlo Polo Cup Parade held in front of the Hotel de Paris in Monte-Carlo, Monaco.
Yeah, it’s a slow news day.
On the morning of Sunday, September 18, 2016, Their Majesties King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium accompanied by their four children, Princess Elisabeth, Prince Gabriel, Prince Emmanuel and Princess Eleonore, participated in the Dimanche sans Voiture (Car-Free Sunday) in Brussels. Dimanche sans Voiture is a day when many Belgians ditch their cars for a day and ride their bikes where ever they may be going. If that makes any sense.
Anyway, the royal family rode their bikes from the beautiful Château de Laeken to the Quartier St-Géry where they attended a neighborhood party with the locals.
