Sir -- I read with great interest your prize-winning Letter of the Week (Sunday Independent, April 10, 2011), "A warm royal welcome" by Paddy Harte, former TD, Donegal.
I was flabbergasted to learn that the king of Belgium is called 'King Philip'.
Having lived in Belgium for 40 years, I believe that the king of Belgium is called 'King Albert' and his queen is 'Paola'. King Albert has a son 'Philippe' who is crown prince.
