Abdication of Leopold III

Today marks the 58th anniversary of the abdication of King Leopold III of the Belgians.

I came across a clip of the first few lines of his abdication speech.




The full text of his speech may be found HERE.

I had just started a post on the abdication when I was called away and it took a while to get back to it. I just noticed this and edited my own post to add some links to your own. The video was nice, I'd never seen that before either.

Thank you for linking!

Yes, I like his voice, so steady, serious, and purposeful.
