Belgium's King Albert II announces abdication

3 posts in this topic

The King of the Belgians, Albert II, has announced his abdication.

In a national televised address, the 79-year-old monarch said he would step down in favour of his son Crown Prince Philippe, 53, on 21 July, Belgium's national day.

He said his health was no longer good enough to fulfil his duties, and he would step down after nearly 20 years on the throne.

it seems these modern day monarchs are a different breed to the old ones, they use to go on to the end, their last breath, it seems good old Queen Lizzy in buck-house is one of the old breed, braced herself to her duties. carrying the mantle through good and bad.
