They live in a castle and and have a private botanic garden at home. That alone suggests to me they are not "just like any other children". I've noticed though that the current Belgian and Danish royal familes in particular are very good at using "ordinary family" images as a PR asset. The British or Spanish royal families on the other hand tend to do that less frequently.

The Spanish Royal Family did it a lot when the current King was little, nowadays people are usually WTFing at how little Leonor and Sofía Jr are seen, since we watched their father and aunts grow up.

Most of the newly created titles of nobility are personal, non-hereditary titles. Therefore, they cannot be inherited by the children of the person who holds the title.

Sometimes the King may, however, "upgrade" a previous hereditary title that already existed, for example, when King Albert II raised all members of Mathilde's family to the rank of "count/countess" (previously, the head of the family was a baron and all other family members were only jonkheren ou jonkvrouwen, i.e. untitled nobility).

Thanks for the pictures.
The actual King and Queen host more and more at the Royal Palace which is in the center of Brussels.
The former King Albert II hosted in Laeken , he just had to cross the Road

I'm glad they are doing it at the Royal Palace in Brussels. Given the circumstances, it becomes a sign of defiance against the terrorist threat over the city, even if the event in fact was already previously scheduled to take place at the Royal Palace anyway.

I agree with that too and I am glad the Kings use the royal palace more often that King Albert. I guess the days of King Albert would often be "empty".

Yes King Albert has just to cross the road to host in Laeken, but King Phillip would not even have tot do that becouse he lives in the Laeken Palace. So maybe it is also done to keep is "private live" a bit more separate.
