Royal News Special Report: Belgian Abdication
The “job” of being King of the Belgians is not an easy one but, for the sake of the kingdom and the cause of monarchy in general, I hope all goes smoothly during this transition. King Albert II has given many years of good service, has had to deal with problems more frustrating than almost any other national leader in the world, and I doubt anyone else could have done better. May he have a happy retirement and of course we wish all the best to Prince Philippe, soon to be King of the Belgians, I hope his reign will be a long and happy one.
L’union fait la force!
