Belgian Abdication & Installation: Changes in Titles, Dotation and the Court

Is he really using Philippe II? wasn't he going by just Philippe like Baudouin did?

that's the general rule. I guess it's just the press getting confused. I remember it happened the same with the new pope. for a couple of days, people kept on calling him Francesco I (Francis I) until the Vatican Press Office explained one and for all what was the right way the write the name. so I think that's the same kind of situation

No, I meant the thread goes with "Philippe II", Philippe the SECOND and as far as I know he'll be the first, that's why I am confused...

why should he use Philippe II if he's the first? No, no he'll be just King Philippe (Roi Philippe, Koning Filip). when there will be a Philippe II, he will be known as Philippe/Filip I then.

They will be no ermine Glitter but new Royal Uniforms and of Course the Leopold Sash for both. This Order has no Collar.

Te Deum :
Kine Albert II in his bleu Uniform of General 4 Stars , Philippe will wear for the last time his Crown Prince Uniform

Abdication :
Same Uniforms

Oath:
King Philippe will wear a brand new brown King's Uniform ( his Father had to borrow one for his Oath in the hurry). King Albert will wear I suppose no Uniform.

Royal Defilé :
King Philippe his brand new Uniform General 4 Stars and King Albert ?

So all three signatures for any documents. Hopefully this should satisfy everyone.

The title of Duke of Brabant is reserved for the eldest child of the King (or Queen) of the Belgians. Thus when Philippe becomes King, his eldest child Princess Elisabeth will immediately become the Duchess of Brabant.
She won't be titled Crown Princess of Belgium, actually this title doesn't exist officially; she'll be HRH the Duchess of Brabant or HRH Princess Elisabeth of Belgium, Duchess of Brabant.

I'm not sure about that though. I mean, the crownprince/princess is titled Duke/Duchess of Brabant. as far as I know, crownprince/princess is a synonym for Hereditary Prince/Princess. In fact, when I occasionally watch the flemish tv news, they always refer to Prince Philippe as Kronprins Filip. I don't know if that's a mistake or it's just another way to call the heir to the throne

I think it is just a synonym of Heir to the Throne, but not an official title. And if you look at official sources, i.e. the website of the Belgian Monarchy, Philippe is never referred to as Crown Prince of Belgium but always as Prince Philippe or as the Duke of Brabant.
And also the title of Crown Prince is also used informally to refer to other Heirs to the Throne of various monarchies, but without being it the official title; a couple of examples are the Prince of Asturias and, before he became King of The Netherlands, the Prince of Orange, who are often called respectively Crown Prince Felipe and Crown Prince Willem-Alexander but Crown Prince isn't their title.

might there be a chance for the new King to restore the old noble titles that were used by the king's children and abolished by King Albert in 2001? It would be awesome to combine them with the title of Prince/ss of Belgium as it is in Sweden. Duchess of Brabant for Elisabeth, Prince of Liège for Gabriel, Count of Flanders for Emmanuel and a complete new one for Eleonore

I remember watching old pictures of King Albert's wedding ad he was wearing a collar along with the sash of the Order of Leopold. was that another order...maybe an abolished one?

Will Queen Fabiola's title be change now when Mathilde is new Belgian queen? Because it's a little bit weird that three women in Belgium have the same title.

Mathilda is The Queen, Paola is Queen Paola, and Fabiola is Queen Fabiola.

Having multiple women who are queens isn't all that uncommon.

More precisely Mathilde is HM the Queen of the Belgians, Paola is HM Queen Paola of Belgium and Fabiola is HM Queen Fabiola of Belgium.
So only the two former queens have the same title.

Also worth noting is that H.M.Queen Fabiola is a Queen Dowager as the widow of a King.

In the party in the park yesterday, somebody asked Philippe to sign a guestbook.
He signed Filip van België.
I believe has to sign with just Philippe/Filip now.
