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.

I didn't like Albert and Paola's decision to be abroad for the National Day, but in the end I think this gave the chance to Philippe and Mathilde to shine, especially thanks to the presence of the kids that gave the day a breath of fresh air after all the fuss of the family drama.

It is nice to see the kids with their parents attending to the Te Deum, now it is the royal family. and I think it is a goood idea of Paola and Albert to let the first place to the new royal family

Philippe and Mathilde have such pretty children. I cannot believe how grown up the little Duchess of Brabant is becoming!

Not sure how I feel about Mathilde's outfit yet, especially the hat....
