I've been hearing and reading a little about political problems in Belgium lately, which seem to be potentially quite serious.

What, then, is the position of the Royal Family? If these difficulties are not resolved, is the throne secure, does anyone know?

Thank you.

Belgium was united with the Netherlands after the 1814-15 congress of Vienna in order to creat a north-eastern buffer against future French expansion after the Napoleonic period

the kingdom of Belgium

Although the politic problems of the last months, the public opinion among the belgians is for remaining an united country. Belgium is a federation with flamand and valon regions, and both have important autonomy from 1994( with the new constitution). The crown have the great responsibility for assurance the people confidence in their country and its institutions, the proud in their history of freedom, a belgian history since 1830.
