I don’t think I have ever seen so many impressions of this festive ceremony. And we have seen quite a lot rooms of the royal Palace in action, the hall where Mathilde received the Ketnet for example I hadn’t seen in ages. I like this new approach a lot and I’m eagerly awaiting the first incoming state visit.

Also not sure if it has been mentioned already but theres a Belgian royal twitter account now.

(not completely sure if this should go here, if not please delete or move)

80% des Belges font confiance au roi Philippe - lavenir.net

80% of the Belgians trust their new King. 74% of men and 84% of women (no wonder he has a bigger appeal on the femenine portion of the population )
What is more surprising IMO is to see young people (18-34) with a 80% of confidence on Philippe!!
