Random Royaling – Queen Mathilde

Queen Mathilde, who I have long suspected is our kindest Queen, has continued with a reduced and targeted number of engagements

For International Women’s Day last week, she wore a plaid wrap (I am not sure what else to call it – cape, maybe?) with a sheath style dress while visiting the Flemish Brabant province. She also met with various business and corporate women leaders, wearing a wrap Natan blouse.

Last week, Mathilde and two of her children, Emmanuel and Eleanore, paid a visit to a care facility that has been sealed off to visitors. They brought homemade cakes and waved to the residents from outside. I am sure the sight of children, flowers, and homemade goodies brought joy to the folks inside, and to their relatives who cannot visit at this time. Darn you, Tilly, for making me teary!
