The Cross of Laeken takes up the cause of the much-maligned King Leopold III in Defending the Saxe-Coburgs: Part III. And, of course, if you have not already, I highly recommend reading up on Part I and Part II. Crown Prince Philippe of Belgium is probably my favorite royal heir at the moment and I onced asked around why so many have a negative view of him when the poor man had really never 'put a foot wrong' as the Brits would say. I was told that the enemies of Belgium wanted to destroy the monarchy as a way of destroying Belgian unity but found little success at this because the Belgian royals were so popular. Hence they have started to make personal attacks to lower the respect people have for the royals themselves, the King and Prince Philippe in particular. As you can see reading through these posts, this tactic is not entirely new and King Leopold III has certainly suffered unjustly in the 'court of public opinion'.
