      Totally lost in this week's news surrounding the anticipation and birth of the newest lineal heir to the British throne was the accession of a new King in a nearby country.
       
      On Sunday, His Majesty Philippe LĂ©opold Louis Marie of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha became King of the Belgians upon the health-related abdication of his father, who had reigned for 20 years.  Philippe is a 53-year-old son of King Albert II and Queen Paola, who is of Italian nobility.  Philippe's wife Mathilde is the first Belgian-born queen consort in the history of the Belgian monarchy.  The heiress apparent is their eleven-year-old daughter the Princess Elisabeth, Duchess of Brabant.
