Its interesting that in two of the countries in Europe where the monarchy might be most needed to keep the nation together, the current RFs are so tight-knit and seemingly well prepared heirs, both female (Belgium and Spain). Phillipe and Felipe have so much in common and both have chosen a very good partner. Nice to see - and likely neither family will break apart even if their country or the monarchy will. In many countries/RFs I dont think it would work out so well..
Yes! I agree, Felipe and Philippe seem very similar and both have raised lovely children who are very respectful to the crown.
sad there were no tiaras but otherwise a lovely little ceremony. happy birthday to elisabeth!
ps why are the kiddos called waffles/wafflets?
Because the children are four cute little Belgian waffles
Lovely Belgian waffles with lots of butter and syrup on top!
