The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Prince William and Kate Middleton) flew to Belgium this morning to take part in services with The King and Queen of The Belgians (King Philippe and Queen Mathilde). The group arrived in Liege, and The Duke of Cambridge delivered a speech to an audience that included King Felipe of Spain, and German President Joachim Gauck.
