King Philippe's Christmas speech 2013 -

King Philippe did his first Christmas speech yesterday:
King Filip: "Nelson Mandela showed us dialogue and reconciliation can change the world"

He pronounced it completely in the 3 official languages: Dutch, French and German (his father did one in Dutch and one in French and added a German phrase at the end, his uncle did only one half Dutch, half French and a German phrase at the end, I believe)

The speech is nice. It is great that Belgium accomplished a lot in 2013.

I love how he's working so hard to include all communities of Belgium, I feel like he truly believes in his job and loves his country genuinely :)

Lovely message in french. I love this couple, they are nice and serious people.
I remember, i had watched thei wedding, around 15 years ago, Mathilde was very delicate and emotionnated, but i think she became a strong and devoted person. I think she will be a great Queen.
