You didn't miss anything, Queen Margaret is not abdicating nor announced she has plans, therefore Frederik & Mary have nothing planned.

I guess each royal house do things differently and have their own agenda how they handle, celebrate certain events.

I think SLV may have been referring to Philippe and Mathilde

It all happened really quickly and so who knows...probably they will replace King Albert and Queen Paola in all the visits already scheduled or, since it's more likely that they will go on vacation in August they will start a welcoming tour in September.

Hihi, getting crowned and then going to Holidays ..... not the most ideal Timing, but - at least to us - it was really "short notice", the abdication.

And YES, I know, they will not be "crowned" in the original sense (which is a pity, really).

I would assume that the King & Queen will do their farewells now and the new King & Queens will do a tour later on in the year.

The palace published a new book about Filip with some new private photos: video

VTM made a parody on the videoclip from Formidable by Stromae : article and video
They have a sketch show with parodies on Filip and Mathilde (there's a seperate thread about it in their thread)

A gallery about building the throne in the parliament.

Mr Flahaut, president of the chamber, says he has a response ready should anyone shout 'vive la république'

I have read some where in the Dutch press (don't ask me where) that the new king and ueen will also do a welcome tour trough Belgium and to other heads of state.

The 'blijde intrede' is a (re-invented) tradition from the times of the medieval dukes of Brabant btw.

--
According to the Belgian news there were 1000s op people in Liege., Nice that they finished their tour in this city, since they were both prince and princess of Liege for the largest part of their lives.

they definitely need to prepared if anyone tries to ruin the day to the new king. In the pictures you can see 7 chairs/thrones, I hope that two of them are of course for their majesties, King Albert and Queen Paola, one for the newest Queen Mathilde and the other 4 for the little princes

The pics of Albert and Paola arm in arm on the balcony in Liege, touched Paola kissing Albert, have been the best and most moving pics so far!

I agree. When Albert came to the throne after the sudden death of King Baudouin he and Paola waited for the end of the official mourning period, then they embarked on the "Joyeuses Entrees" of the kingdom's nine provinces. I remember seeing the photos in all the royalty mags.

I think that in due time Philippe and Mathilde will do the same thing.

They are growing up so quickly! Especially Elisabeth, who I think is turning into a little beauty. And all of the Brabant kids are going to be tall, like their parents.
