Look at how big Gabriel is growing!

All of Philippe and Mathilde's kids will be taller than average, I think!

Here is a sweet story about Gabriel at the European Hockey Championships. As Gabriel is playing hockey at the White Star Evere, someone asked Gabriel how many goals he had scored this season and Gabriel hesitated a bit and then answered "42". Philippe knew better and said it had been 72 goals actually whereupon Gabriel replied that he didn't mention the real score because he didn't want to sound pretentious .

What a sweet and modest boy!

Now that's a young man who's been raised right. I'm guessing this is Field Hockey?

For who's keeping track:
Belgian media report that belgian people's confidence in K.Philippe/Filip has risen from 51% in june (when he was still crownprince) to 69% in august (after becoming King).

Me thinks that's quite a nice thing for him to know...

I am happy that the confidence is up. As Theo Aronson already wrote in 'The Coburgs from Belgium': The Belgian Coburgs blossom late in life'. It is remarkable that even in Flanders confidence is 60% (in Wallonia it even is 82%).

I think the thing is that Philippe now looks very confident, not as shy as he used to be as Crown Prince and having someone who's as charismatic as Mathilde by his side helps a lot as well.

Also: getting linguistic neutral names for his children and getting them into dutch schools? stroke of genius IMO
