The Te Deum for the upcoming King's Feast/Fete du Roi on November 15 usually attended by King Albert, Queen Paola, Princess Astrid, Prince Lorenz, Prince Laurent and sometimes Princess Claire has been canceled. It's a matter of debate whether an online alternative could be offered, but no decision yet. It is expected that the celebration in Parliament won't take place either.

That's why I've written "usually". I've listed the family members for those who are not familiar with the usual attendees. Many people are regularly suprised to hear that King Philippe and Queen Mathilde don't attend this annual event, although it's a celebration for the King..

I was wondering if the Te Deum would go ahead this year given the Covid19 situation in Belgium.

The tradition is the King and the Queen never attend the King's Feast.
As Queen Fabiola was Queen the day of her Wedding , She attend the King Feast the first time on 15 November 1993

Given that Belgium just announced a 1.5 month lockdown I seriously doubt it.

On the occasion of the King's Feast, this year the Palace sharing a selection of archive photos. Due to covid measures, the Te Deum and the ceremony at the Palace of the Nation cannot take place this year.

The Churches are closed. But not a Parlement. A Civil Feast of the nation could have been possible!

Was there a royal pew in the past for members of the RF during the Te Deum Mass?

The first row of seats is reserved for the members of the royal family. See for example these pictures from 2017.

I think this was the reasonable and responsible thing to do, set an example and show that the rules are for everyone.
Well done.

King's Feast is on this year


"Their Majesties King Albert II and Queen Paola attend the King's Day ceremony at the Palais de la Nation. The theme for this year is “100 years of women in Belgian politics”. The ceremony is organized by the House of Representatives, the Senate and the Federal Government."


https://www.monarchie.be/fr/agenda/palais-de-la-nation


"Their Majesties King Albert II and Queen Paola and His Royal Highness Prince Laurent attend the Te Deum on the occasion of the King's Day, in the Cathedral of Saints-Michel-et-Gudule in Brussels. "

Princess Astrid broke a vertebra and could sadly not attend her nieces Weddings. She is still missing now for the King's Feast ?

Sadly the former royal couple was whistled by police (!). Nothing to do with anti-royalist tendences: it were actions from their syndicats (unions). They demand better salaries.

But whistling an elderly royal couple which has nothing to do with their pay is really sad. And this coming from the police...

It seems that she was still unable to join in. Very few members of the RF were present. Prince Laurent apparently still is having trouble with his mask as he keeps forgetting that his nose needs to be covered too.

King Albert II without his glaces ? Queen Paola was alone when they got out. The King went directly in his car.
I remember years ago i was at the Cathedral for the Celebration for the first year of Grand Duchess Joesphine Charlotte passing away.
Cardinal Danneels said to me "be careful for these steps it is dark ".
