Happy 20th anniversary to King Philippe and Queen Mathilde!
Courtesy of an eagle-eyed Handbagger, here is a video retrospective of their relationship. Yes, it’s a bit on the cheesy-sweet side, but the glimpses of their baby faces and the beginnings of their Kingly/Queenly royal style are worth it, I promise you.
Do you recognize these two young people in the photo below? Neither do the Hofdames, and there is some debate among us whether this is even Mathilde, but Getty images assures us it is an early photo of their relationship. What do you think?
1999 – Engagement casual, and a slightly more formal appearance later in the year.
Hanging with Fabulous Queen Fabiola – a relationship that was reported to be very important to all involved.
2005 – Young family life.
2006 – With their two oldest. Tils is channeling her wild side in leather.
2006 – Click through for some hair ornament action!
2014 – Let’s face it, royaling can be weird and I assume draining, too. It’s good to have a friend.
2016 – Royal Goofballs!
2017 – King and Queen – with Tils sporting full-on Natan.
While we are on the subject of Mathilde, we’ll add her latest outing here. She attended an event at UCL Louvain-La-Neuve university wearing a Natan ensemble.
Let’s celebrate them! Post your favorite Philippe and Tils photos.
