The king appointed the historian Vincent Viaene as one of his advisors. Viaene used to teach at Oxford. He is known for his book about the 'Congo in Belgium'.

The article states that the five are more "eredames" (Ladies of Honour) than "hofdames" (Ladies-in-Waiting). The difference seems that Solange gravin de Liedekerke (Fabiola), Colette gravin de Brocqueville (Paola) and Nathalie prinses de Merode (Paola) were in paid service to the Queen.
