The court announced today that Prince Joachim wil start his military career in November.
He is enlisted on November 16 at the "Southern Center for Basic Education and Training" in Arlon, where he follows the military basic training with young people who opted for a "Voluntary Military Incorporation" (better known as "Voluntary Military Service"). After this prince Joachim follows a training duty officer on the bridge at "the Nautical School of the Navy" in Bruges.

That has indeed been eye-catching . As to certain (stupid) prejudices
concerning that colour, it shows a kind of self-confindence that he followed
his own fashion taste and nothing else...Likeable!

Thanks to Prince Joachim, in this period so hard for Belgium, to have made us so much laugh.

Priceless.

I noticed that Prince Joachim has "van Belgie" on his nameplate on his jacket but "de Belgique" on his mess (?) uniform. Is it usual for names to be in both Flemish and French? I thought Amedeo and his siblings only went by de Belgique...

Good observation! I guess it's a result of the Belgian language division between the Flemish and
the Walloons - a kind of compromise to show an identification with and appreciation for both
spoken languages and regions.

Here are some additional pics:
