I think it's possible that she will get that title too, as Mathilde received the title duchess of Brabant. With Elisabeth it could be the other way around, she gets the title now, her future husband when he marries her. Can't find any information on it though. I'm too excited And I was already stressed because I'm getting to know my uni results in an hour

I would be very surprised if he did this.

Anyway, it would be very exciting to see a new King and Queen.

I think there maybe quite a few anxious Belgian Royal Watchers awaiting the news from the Kings speech (myself included).

I think not. In the article that I posted before, a journalist asked what it was about and the minister whould have said something like 'can't you guess that now?'. Also, the media is reporting 'abdication', they're now showing overviews of his reign and stuff.

My guess is that King Albert and Queen Paola have been thinking at abdication for a long time. This year (20 years after he became King) is a nice year to do it.
I also think that one of his considerations must have been the 'Delphine case'.
Maybe when he is prince again, he has the feeling that he is a bit more free to acknowledge Delhine as his daughter and that it draws less attention after his abdication.

Well, our Queen has set up a trent this year, first Beatrix, the pope after here and now the Belgian King. For Belgium it is not so usual like the Netherlands, were it is tradition, but maybe a part of a modern monarchy worldwide?

Abdication fever it seems. It certainly puts the pressure on other older monarchs...
