Princess Xenia, what do you mean about the recognition of Elisabeth as heir? Isn't she automatically recognized as such?

The King and the Queen are now on their way to the Parliement.
De Redactie just announced that some dictators around the world including Causescu, Idi Amin, Saddam Hussein and Tito used the same model of the car that is taking the Kings to the Parliement....
No comment.

Oh I see, that would be great!

Mathilde is wearing the same dress. I thought Filip was supposed to wear a beige uniform, but it looks like a green one.

The uniform is the 4star general uniform, after the abdication of his father K.Filip is now the boss of the nation's army..

I know that, but apparently De Redactie thought people should have that little bit of travia information.

Btw, they arrived the Parliament.

They said it maybe because the car has special protection in case someone would try to attack or shoot the king....

There is some apprehension if anyone will try any anti-royal actions..

Well, his German can always improve, but then his father's wasn't better either and they don't speak it everyday so it's understandable.
