I love the fact that the King himself read aloud to the children, in this and other royal houses it's usually the Queen or a (Crown) Princess who participates in such events. It emphasizes the role and importance of fathers and men in the education of children..

Also in Belgium it is usually the Queen who comes to read aloud.
But because this year the theme of the event is 'reading aloud dads', it seemed the people who organised it a good idea to ask the King himself this year.
And he liked to come. Good for him. Top.:flowers:

This is great! I really hope this is not a one-time thing, but every once in a while children should be invited to the palace to receive a lesson from the king himself.

I think so as well, it's a pretty good idea worth repeating!
