Yeah, the reporters said it too, but they didn't give a reason. Maybe it has to do something with his work/where he lives? That it wasn't possible to fly over or something?

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

From Hello magazine

King Philippe and Queen Mathilde make their first appearance as Belgium's royals - hellomagazine.com

It even made the Irish news today,which normally ignores anything to do with Royalty with the exception of the British royals or Princely Family of Monaco.

King Philippe I Of Belgium Takes Throne
Quote:
BRUSSELS — Belgians shouted "Long live the king" Sunday to welcome their new monarch to the throne on a sunny national holiday. But several legislators from northern Flanders boycotted King Philippe I's coronation, highlighting longstanding feuding between the nation's Dutch-speaking Flemings and Francophones – the biggest challenge the new monarch will face.

In his first speech as king shortly after his father King Albert II abdicated, Philippe made no attempt to paper over those cracks, instead casting the country's division between its 6 million Dutch-speaking Flemings and 4.5 million Francophones as one of its strengths.

Congratulations to the Belgian people with your new King and Queen! They seem like a happy, committed and capable couple. I was able to watch the entire proceedings on our TV and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very different from the Dutch inauguration, but still very moving and special.

...and Brussels seems like a city worth visiting...

Full House

Lovely pictures- especially like the fifth one down-a full house (three queens and a pair of kings).

Everybody noticed that Prince Laurent was in a very bad mood the whole day and did not attend the popular ball on July 20th. Why ??

And Claire rolling her eyes all the time.
No idea... Maybe because he's not going to be a big deal anymore? No idea...
