Royal Museum Opening

Photos: RTBF / C'est du Belge
The Musée Fin-de-Siècle of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium opened its doors for the first time yesterday and on the eve before there was a soiree held to mark the occasion that turned out to be a quite royal one with numerous members of the Luxembourg and Liechtenstein families in attendance. A part of this new museum hosts the collection of Baron and Baroness Roland Gillion Crowet, patrons of the art and well-connected members of the Gotha.

Among the guests of the opening event were Prince Guillaume and Princess Sibilla, Prince Jean and Countess Diane, Prince Nikolaus and Princess Margaretha, as well as Prince Philipp and Princess Isabelle. Not bad, eh? If those weren't enough royals for you, Princess Astrid of Belgium who was representing her brother the King, Empress Farah Pahlavi of Iran and Archduchess Anna-Gabriele of Austria were also in attendance. To see them all, skip ahead to the six-minute mark of this video by RTBF's C'est du Belge. Thanks to Valentin of the Royalement Blog for pointing my in the direction of the event!
