Coronavirus: Mathilde to young people: “read and keep a journal!”

This Tuesday, March 24, Queen Mathilde took advantage of this period of confinement to read aloud on video a short extract from the book: “So far everything is fine”, by Marie Colot (ed. Alice), who received the Premiere Victor Prize for children’s books. The Queen wants to encourage young people in this country to read more during this complicated time that we are currently going through because of the coronavirus. She also suggests that young people and adults alike keep a diary during this period of confinement, which will allow them to later remember the impressions they have felt.

The sequence was filmed in a living room of the royal castle of Laeken, the Queen like the Royal Family applying to the letter the containment measures imposed by the authorities of the country.
