  1. Awww!!! King Philippe and Queen Mathilde always look so sweet together, and especially here, in this universal symbol of love, the Taj Mahal! They’re not flashy or controversial, and there has been absolutely no scandal associated with them. I don’t know them from Adam, but I always think of them as devoted to each other as well as their kids. I wish them many happy years together.
