This means that next year prince Philippe will have 85.000 Euros less to spend. His brother prince Laurent will get 28.000 Euros less while princess Astrid sees her dotation decreased by 25.000 Euros. Queen Fabiola will get 132.000 Euros less than last year. Only the king’s dotation will not be lowered, but since he offered to pay the renovation of the royal palace himself, this means that he will have to tighten his budget this year too.
