Parodies and Cartoons of the Belgian RF

In 2009 VTM has been broadcasting 'Wij van BelgiŽ' . A docu-soap about prince Filip and princess Mathilde. Here an episode where they take prince Gabriel to a soccer club in Brugge:



Basically it is all around the accent and lack of understanding of Dutch of the prince and princess. And about prince Filip trying to be funny and spontanious while he is not... and the princess playing the adoring wife into perfection.

Filip and Mathilde in 'Belgium's got Talent':



Filip: My name is Filip of Belgium and I have a dream: I dream of a beautiful country () but sadly my papa doesn't want to quit.
Mathilde: a wooden man, a plastic prince are very hurtful cliches. I tell everybody with criticism: he is spontanious, from blood and flesh...
Filip: they say: Filip, he can not do it. But I never got a chance (..) but is there nobody who sees...
Mathilde: his great talent and his presence. (...) Most dreams will seldom come true, but deep in my body I dream, that your throne will be ready.
Together you aren't dreaming. With you living is really beautiful ('werkelijk prachtig', one of the prince remarks which sound terribly uneasy in Dutch). The throne is going nowhere.
Filip: even when I wait until 2080.

Lots of word jokes again. And some old quotes, like 'Belgium is a multifasceted diamond', something the prince said in many speeches and caused criticism in the press (as he was supposed to repeat the same speech each and every time he went on a trade mission).

Princess Mathilde starting 'project decibel'. To raise awareness for deaf people she wants to have a bell as pin on your clothes, because the more the you hear the bell, the more you are aware that there are deaf peoplŽ:

Press conference announcing the docu-soap:



Both of them are all the time emphasizing how spontanious the prince is and what a good sense of humor he has. The couple is portrayed as completely out of touch with reality (and with the Dutch language).

From Chris & Co: Prince Laurent visiting a zoo. They show him a baby monkey that was ignored by her father. The prince suggests the name 'Delphine' for the monkey:

Marengo, do you know anything about parodies, cartoons or caricatures of the Belgian royal family in French? Otherwise, one could nearly suspect the Dutch speaking Belgians to be more bold than their Walloon compatriots...
However, during King Albert's and Queen Paola's visit to Maldegem in March 2011, Marc De Roo (the mayor's brother who is an artist) actually presented the king with a caricature of the latter -whereas Queen Paola enjoyed her mosaic portrait (http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1217413). According to "Royals hors sťrie Mai/Juin 2011", King Albert amused himself but his wife remarked that the drawing of her husband appeared too chubby -rather resembling Jean-Luc Dehaene.

this is sooo funny...even more since I understand French and Italian is my mother tongue. Believe me this is the most classical comedy situation in our families.... they portray Paola more as a "desperate housewife" than a queen...but still I find it hilarious.

and congrats to the one who plays Paola for his almost perfect Italian (I suppose that's man)

Instead I've watched few times on YT the parody of Philippe and Mathilde but I don't find it funny at all. even if I noticed the actor have similar voices (especially the actress, she resembles a lot P.Mathilde)
