Meanwhile in Belgium

While large parts of the rest of her family were busy in Luxembourg cheering on the athletes, Archduchess Marie-Astrid accompanied her maternal aunt Queen Fabiola of Belgium to the final session of the Concours Reine Elisabeth - Piano 2013.

The Concours musical international Reine-Élisabeth-de-Belgique, as it is full name, is an annual music competition taking place at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. It is a founding member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions and is considered to be one of the most prestigious and most difficult.

Luxembourgish royals are no strangers to the event as Princess Margaretha attended in 2011 and I also seem to recall seeing Archduchess Marie-Astrid at the event before even though I can't find prove at the moment.

A video of last night's concert is available at RTBF, the royals can be seen arriving at about 13:30.
