Queen Fabiola and her apple were the best thing happened that day! It's one of the funniest things that I've ever heard. Very nice to see this witty side of her! This is one sassy woman. Anyone has video of her waving her apple?

On July 17, the annual television and radio speech to mark the Belgian National day was recorded at the Royal Palace in Brussels. It's King Philippe's first National Day speech as King.

I love Mathilde's dress! It looks similar to one that Letizia has worn.

I can't wait for tomorrow! Mathilde always wears such interesting clothes for National Day. Will we see Elisabeth?

It's nice they decided to brought the children. They're the King's children now after all. and even if Eleonore in just 6 they're all so well behaved...
I hope better quality pictures will arrive soon

Is it possible to split Belgian national day between the 2 Kings?
Thanks and make a new for King Philippe's reign.

A real royal family with Children we had only from 1934 to 1935 when Queen Astrid died.
