Charming Charles impresses Mathilde with his gallantry
Princess Mathilde of Belgium might be married to her own prince but that doesn't prevent her appreciating the attentions of another charming royal. The 35-year-old mum of three, who is expecting her fourth child this spring, seemed positively coy as Prince Charles turned on the old-fashioned charm and gallantly kissed her hand. I have to say that our dear Mathilde has a special taste concerning men !
