Christmas message of King Philippe

On Sunday King Philippe congratulated Belgians with Christmas and invited the nation to wonder at nature and the beauty of daily life, despite personal difficulties, insecurity in the world and threats to global stability

He repeated the word “wonder” seven times in his annual seasonal address.

According to the head of state, Belgium is doing well and it is the result of a long history of solidarity and compromise.

“The future of our democracies depends first of all on how we choose to look at things,” he added.

King changed a 5-years tradition of speaking standing up and this year he returned to a sitting position for his address.
