In 1970, Belgium was basically divided into three regions according to the language limit, and in 1993 the country became a federation. The federal structure consists of two parallel systems: the regions of Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels

Therefore, the King's title is not "the King of Belgium", but "the King of the Belgians", that is, King of All, divided Belgium.


Only the monarch, the monarch's spouse and their children and King Philip's siblings and their children are Prince / Princess of Belgium and Royal Highness.

To reduce the number of Prince / Princess of Belgium and Royal Highness, King Philippe decided that his siblings' children should not bear the title of Prince / Princess of Belgium and Royal Highness.


Duke / Duchess of Brabrant is used next in line for the throne

The title Austrisa-Este comes from Prince Lorenz, who was born Austria.
