How sensible some royals are these day handing over the yoke to the next generation and having a little life for them selves. Long live the new king!

Oh Wil, and I remember Queen Fabiola when she was such a beautiful woman. Time is such a hard master sometimes isn't it.

Best wishes to the new king. I also agree with Arija. It is nice to see the older generation give way to the younger.
Prince Charles probably wonders if he will see the day.

The change-over sounds so sensible! The young King and his family look like a very happy and healthy family.

Thank you for posting this! We don't hear about these things here! Maybe I should do a post once about all the royalties in Europe....
