Royal response from His Majesty The King of The Belgians on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
Born Dutch: Filip Leopold Lodewijk Maria, French: Philippe Léopold Louis Marie, German: Philipp Leopold Ludwig Maria on 15th April 1960 in Belvédère Castle in Laeken north of Brussels to Their Royal HIghnesses The Prince and Princess de Liège.
Philippe became King of The Belgians on 21st July 2013 upon the abdication of His Father KIng Albert II of Belgium.
The reply is in the reply of a card which on the front has His Majesty’s Monogram an F and P, which represents The King’s name in the official languages of Belgium under the Royal Crown. Inside is a message in French thanking me for my birthday wishes and a picture of His Majesty.
