Princesses open Museum “M” in Leuven

HRH Princess Mathilde of Belgium and HRH Princess Maxima of the Netherlands, officially opened the new Museum M last Sunday, the renovated city museum of Leuven, one of the oldest cities in the Low Countries, which hosts one of the oldest universities of Europe. The Princesses took the time to talk to the people who had turned up to greet them. As usual when they are together, they seemed to have a lot of fun while cutting the ribbon to declare the museum opened.

The museum currently hosts a collection of the Flemish Primitive artist Rogier Van der Weyden, one of the most important painters of the Medieval Low Countries.
