0
Future Queen: Princess Mathilde, Duchess of Brabant, Mathilde of Belgium

On July 21st, Belgium's King Albert II will abdicate. That means that his eldest son, Crown Prince and Heir Apparent Philippe Duke of Brabant, will become the new King of Belgium. His wife, Mathilde, Duchess of Brabant will officially be Queen Consort--in other words, wife of the King, thank you very much. Mathilde will, on July 21st, become the first ever Belgian born Queen consort of Belgium (what a new idea--a Belgium born person actually "ruling" over Belgium!). Her father-in-law--the King has been embroiled in a mess of a mistress and secret offspring and well...he may have seen the writings on the wall, as it were. It was time to big Adiue and Tot Ziens ("Good Bye" in French and Flemish) to the crown.

The Princess--who is of Belgian and noble Polish descent--is a big fashionista. This, naturally is what I am interested in here on my NICKVERREOS.COM blog. She loves to give fashion at important events, royal weddings, etc.

Most recently, she wore this peplum belted and printed dress at a July 8th visit to Laeken Castle--(left to right) Queen Paola, King Albert, Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde of Belgium receive members of COMORI at Laeken Castle on July 8, 2013 in Brussels, Belgium

The future Queen consort LOVES a neckline "knot":

Her favorite designers of choice include Belgian fashion brand Natan and Armani Prive. Not "Giorgio Armani" darlings but it's Haute Couture branch! Giorgio Armani is too "for the regular people" of course. Yes kids, she loves--and can afford $100,000+ costing Haute Couture--she's a Euro Royal! So let's discuss Mathilde, the next Belgian Queen consort and her FASHION sense:

The Wedding: When Mathilde married Prince Philippe II of Belgium and became the Crown Princess of Belgium, she wore a white custom wedding gown with stand-up collar coat from Belgian Fashion House Natan and its designer Edouard Vermeulen...

Mathilde of Belgium is a big fan of Natan and its designer Edouard Vermeulen and has worn many of his designs, besides her wedding. It is a sure thing that she will be wearing Natan for the July 21st abdication/coronation festivities. Here are some other times Mathilde has worn Natan:
