Photo of the week: Holding court
One royal house visited another this week, as Queen Mathilde took a tour of The Arenbergs exhibition at Leuven’s M Museum
Right at home
Mathilde, born in Brussels into the House of D’Udekem, seemed right at home among the exhibition’s paintings, fashion and tapestries. The Arenbergs covers the history of the family and its impact on modern-day Belgium, as well as its vast collection of art and cultural objects.
It was a spot of cheer in an otherwise challenging week for the royals: Former King Albert II, Mathilde’s father-in-law, was ordered by a court to provide a DNA sample to determine once and for all if he is the biological father of Brussels artist Delphine Boël.
