We are living at a time where not even every german knows who his/ her head of state is...
People being asked on the street anywhere would most likely say "Angela Merkel"

There is often a poor public interest in Belgium anyway. Only for some occasions there is a public interest. Remember the desolate empty streets during Queen Fabiola's State Funeral... pic

Sometimes royal jewels are owned by the State and held in trust by the Sovereign to perform his/her ceremonial representation role on behalf of the State. That is not the case though in Belgium. The tiaras worn by Mathilde and Astrid on the German banquet are both privately owned. If they want to wear them, it is nobody else's business then.
