German TV just reported that the family was threatend with kidnapping the oldest daughter of the family due to Belgiums policy on immigrants. The couple was on introductory visit in Luxembourg when a Belgian TV station received a letter from an unknown person.

Is this true? If so, that person must me totally insane.

The same news headlines are broadcast on belgian (flemish) national tv, so i assume it is true..
Unknown person has sent a letter to newspaper 'La derniere heure' in which they threaten to kidnap P.Elisabeth. The princess is guarded more closely at the moment and the belgian anti-terror-service is involved in the case

I had expected this to be big news on these forums and came here to find out more news, but apparently jewelry and gossip of other royals is more important here

Hopefully they find the sender of the letter asap, and let's hope the princess and her siblings stay safe...

What a terrible thing to do - to threaten the life of a little girl. Let us hope they'll find him soon.

Palace has confirmed the news, many belgian media are reporting on this
Onbekende wil Elisabeth ontvoeren | VTM NIEUWS

Apparently the person lashes out against foreigners (muslims in particular), says they are taking advantage of the belgian people and is angry that king and government don't take appropriate actions against them.
Person has therefore decided to take action himself in that he will kidnap the princess.

King and Queen are in Luxemburg and have been notified of the letter, security around the princess has been heightened.

You know what, I think this news actually deserves it's own thread on these forums..will create one..

I'm glad to see that the police took the threat seriously and have increased her security.

Nope, no news and in previous years the photos would already be published somewhere around christmas, so maybe no photoshoot this year?

I'm afraid it might have something to do with the kidnapping threats towards Princess Elisabeth...

I can very well imagine they spread new pictures via their twitter account on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day along with their best wishes for 2014. Would be a nice start into the New Year and on Christmas itself the focus was solely on King Philippe's first Xmas Speech.

King Philippe reacted to rumours in the magazine ´Dag Allemaal´. According to the magazine the king is called a dictator by his staff. He is supposed to have forbidden his parents to use Ciergnon castle, his sister is thinking about moving to Switzerland and he introduced new humiliating rules to his staff.

The court reacted, spokesperson Rafike Yilmaz said that the entire article is incorrect. King Albert is still welcome at Ciergnon. Normally the palace doesn+t react to gossip, but this time they seem irritated. They admit that the king has a high working pace, but they treat their staff with respect.

Earlier (in December IIRC) king Philippe was critisized for working too... hard!!!

One moment they're all "this family is lazy and useless ... we don't want our money to feed them" and another they're "the king works too much ... he's probably a mean dictator in the palace...we better get rid of him"

I can't really think of Philippe as a frightening person, who mistreats his staff. He's such a nice man, gentle, the kind of good old soul we've unfortunately lost the matrix they were made into. And he needs to work hard to recover to every single shame his father and his younger brother are putting on the family almost on a daily basis

in Belgium were always since years bad relationships between the royals.
For the Red Cross 150 birthday , I saw King Albert and Queen Paola kissing the new King and Queen without seeing and looking at them.
What a difference between the Dutch Royals...
