"Still" frail?
What is so strange in that.
Well, they are not getting younger (nobody is).

Not still frail but still popular (Albert and Paola).

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.
