A nice thank you card from Queen Paola (80th birthday). She is surrounded by her family, children, and grandchildren and great-grandaughter ... but can you spot who is missing from the photo?
Yes, it is Prince Laurent, Queen Paola and King Albert's youngest child, but his wife, Princess Claire and their children did take part in the photo session. Princess Maria Luisa of Belgium is also not in the photo.
