I wonder if the King and the Queen of the Belgians spoke German fluently?
The King of the Netherlands had a German Father.

Philippe does. He is fluent in the three languages of Belgium though his Dutch has been criticized. From what I understand he speaks Dutch, German and French, as well as Spanish and Italian. Mathilde I font believe is fluent in German, only French and Dutch for Belgium, as well as English and Italian.

Anyone who's seen his German version of his Christmas speech would seriously doubt that he's 'fluent' in German. If that's fluent, then I'm fluent too having studied it for around 2 years at grammar school.
