Royal Palace at Brussels

Our lectureship in Belgium is completed; we remained for some additional biblical studies. This morning my wife & I traveled to Brussels for a scheduled study there. While there we had an outside view of the King’s Palace.

Regarding the Royal Palace, Wikipedia says,

The Royal Palace of Brussels is the official palace of the King of the Belgians in the centre of the nation’s capital Brussels. However it is not used as a royal residence, as the king and his family live in the Royal Castle of Laeken on the outskirts of Brussels. The website of the Belgian Monarchy describes the function of the palace as follows: “The Palace is where His Majesty the King exercises his prerogatives as Head of State, grants audiences and deals with affairs of state. Apart from the offices of the King and the Queen, the Royal Palace houses the services of the Grand Marshal of the Court, the King’s Head of Cabinet, the Head of the King’s Military Household and the Intendant of the King’s Civil List. The Palace also includes the State Rooms where large receptions are held, as well as the apartments provided for foreign Heads of State during official visits.

The palace is situated in front of Brussels Park.

Tonight we had concluding studies in Genk, and in the morning we are to fly back home, the Lord willing. We have renewed acquaintences and made new friends in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Holland.

Thanks for following our blog. If I might paraphrase Moses, stay with us and we will do you good (Num. 10:29).
