He has invested a lot of efforts over the last years in promoting better understanding between communities in Belgium. Not everybody will appreciate that, but I think it is right for him to do it.

The Belgium Royals and the Catholic Faith

Forgetting his Catholic faith King Filip signed a Law that would not be acceptable to any authentic Catholic:

Children?s euthanasia bill signed by Belgium king ? RT News

Can we consider he is not a Catholic anymore?He is not like his late uncle who refused to give up his faith to sign a Law.

Any reaction of the other members of the Royal Family regarding this shameful event?
Which is the reaction of the Catholic Church of Belgium after this event?

Belgium is a democracy and not a theocracy AFAIK. The king did his constitutional duty & the only right thing and signed the law. A law that was accepted by a democratic parlament, representing the Belgian people. The king doesn't have to agree with what is said in these laws but his signature means that the legal process by which the law was accepted in parlament was valid. If he uses these laws as a tool to voice his personal beliefs he will quite rightly be out of a job rather quickly.

His own father signed the original euthenasia bill so I am sure his family will be sympathetic.

Baudouin made a big mistake by letting his personal beliefs prevail over his democratic duty. He started a constitutional crisis. He got away with it as he had been head of state for 40 years, people knew his trouble in getting children and because he was Baudouin, the semi-saint. His successor Albert tried to do the same but the then government quickly told him that another Baudouin scenario was unthinkable and could only lead to a government crisis, to Albert's abdication and possibly to the abolishment of the monarchy. It was once and never again. No Belgian politician of any influence would have stood by the king if he refused to sign this law, even the ones that oppose it. A scenario as in Luxembourg where the Garnd Duke squandered his rights would be unacceptable at this point too. King Philippe did the only right thing, even though I am quite sure that euthenasia goes against his own beliefs.

I don't think that signing this law makes him less of a catholic. It makes him a catholic who is realistic and who knows that people who do not agree with the church teachings on this matter - the vast majority in Belgium- should have the option to decide for themselves what they think is best for them. He is not a priest, he is the king of all the Belgians, not only of Belgian Opus Dei members.
