HRH Princess Astrid of Belgium has a very warm heart for Special Olympics in Belgium for all the right reasons. The athletes and volunteers are very proud of that. HRH also decided to support the Special Olympics 2014 Europe-Eurasia Games in Antwerp.
A few days ago, HRH gave a highly unusually interview for prime time TV. Very unlike her, very unlike our royals, as she only decided this the day before during the Opening Ceremony of the National Games! An opening ceremony that she attends every year for many hours by the way.
She took a huge risk in doing so as the Flemish media is not a big fan of the Royals. She didn’t get any questions in advance. Respect! Another milestone for Special Olympics.
(The interview is in Dutch.)
