Queen Mathilde went to Lievegem in East Flanders on Tuesday to support musical projects “Sharing nuts“, which bring together children in difficult circumstances at home and young people from local schools and academies to play music and have fun together. Several hundred children have thus displayed their talents in front of the sovereign, under a splendid sun.
The Queen was first greeted by the project director, Geert Frateur, who also guided her throughout the day’s activities, placed under the seal of sanitary measures.
The sovereign conversed with children and accompanying persons, in particular about the experiences of the youngest during confinement. Initially scheduled for March, this visit had to be postponed because of the coronavirus epidemic.
Under around thirty degrees, some young sportsmen also handled the round ball for a representation match.
“Sharing nuts“received the support of the call for projects”Music Connects“from the Queen Mathilde Fund, managed by the King Baudouin Foundation.
