Bit of History
Belgium claimed independence from the Netherlands on October 4, 1830.
Leopold of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld took the oath as first king of the Belgians on July 21, 1831.
Prince Philippe, Duke of Brabant (French: Philippe Léopold Louis Marie,
Dutch: Filip(s) Leopold Lodewijk Maria; born 15 April 1960) is the heir apparent to the crown of Belgium,
as the eldest child and eldest son of King Albert II and Queen Paola. He is married to Mathilde d’Udekem d’ Acoz
(now Princess Mathilde, Duchess of Brabant). The eldest of their four children, Princess Elisabeth of Belgium,
will become the heir apparent after the ascension of Philippe to the Belgian throne, which puts her in line to be
Belgium’s first female monarch.
On July 3, 2013, King Albert announced that he will abdicate the throne on 21 July due to health reasons,
and that Philippe will succeed him as the next King of the Belgians.
Come and celebrate with La Trappe Cafe for Belgian Independance Day this Saturday July 20th, 2013,
since it will be the 21st in Belgium, to celebrate the reign of the New King Phillipe or Filip and Queen Mathilde.
We will open at 2pm with drink specials and a small plates menu, normal food service will begin at 5pm and
a toast to the new King will be around 9pm with a 6 liter bottle of Val Dieu Grand Cru.
We hope to see you here with us on such a historical day in Belgium.
