Photographing royalty can be big fun

At the last ‘blijde intrede’, a tour where the new Belgian Royals King Philippe and queen Mathilde visit all provinces of Belgium, last but not least they visited Brussels.

Every now and then I photograph royalty too (it is the best selling subject worldwide, helas) and this time I was there too, on this rainy day.

As there are so many other photographers too, I tried to focus un the surroundings and hidden moments of the day.

This situation reminded me of Tin Tin’s Janssen and Janssen.

In the Netherlands there is this discussion of Zwarte Pieten, but here in Brussel I see them all around…

O yes, I shot the royals themselves too, peeking through a window from cityhall, not so happy with the weather I guess.
