A Day in the Life

Here is a brief clip of a documentary on the daily routine of King Baudouin.  He was quite graceful.

This documentary seems to have been made a year or two before the death of King Baudouin. The only members of the royal family to appear in the documentary are the King, the Queen and Prince Philippe and I'm thinking, did the King think that he would have a long life and be succeeded by Philippe? I remember reading, years ago, that Albert would renounce the throne in favor of his son if Baudouin lived a long life and at the time of this film, Baudouin was grooming Philippe for the throne.

Yes, I believe that is true.
