Royal Outfits of the Day: May 30

It's been a while since we checked in with the current goings on of the Belgian royal family, so let's make up for that right quick.
Yesterday, Queen Mathilde participated in the Fight Against Cancer bike ride.
Yeah, we definitely need to keep up to date on our printed trouser happenings. In true Mathilde style, the color of the print matches the color of her top, though the print makes it hard to tell. She paired the outfit with flats, since she was going to do some bike riding herself. Click here for a gallery.

Mathilde's had several other engagements lately, but this one caught my eye more than the rest:
Mathilde visited an art exhibition earlier this week.
Yes, apparently it is Floral Print Week here on the blog, and I'm liking this Dries van Noten floral too.

The rest of the family has news of their own...
Princes Nicolas and Aymeric, twin sons of Prince Laurent and Princess Claire, had their first communion. Looking very smart indeed, the two gentlemen arrived with their mother, who was lovely in vibrant green. The event drew several other royals, so click here for a big gallery or here for a video.

And finally, the palace confirmed the date for another royal wedding: the King's nephew Prince Amedeo, son of Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz, will marry Elisabetta Maria Rosboch von Wolkenstein on July 5th in Rome. Their engagement was officially announced back in February.
