Under the Belgian constitution, the Belgian monarch is referred to as "the King of Belgium" rather than "King of Belgium" to reflect the monarchy's constitutional and popular function, in the whole of Belgium.


Since 1991, girls and boys have equal access to the throne in Belgium. Philippe's oldest daughter, Elisabeth, is No. 1 in the succession and will in time become the country's first reigning queen.
