King Philippe created a surprise on Tuesday by becoming the time of a video clip posted on social networks “federal coach” of the Red Devils… A way to mark the start of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar and King’s Day which took place on November 15. According to Amelie Schildtour journalist specializing in crowned heads, King Philippe, by participating in this filming which makes us discover him in another light, wanted to first have fun…
“A first for King Philippe”
She develops the Sovereign’s royal prowess as an actor, hitherto unknown to the great audience: “This is the first time that the King has taken part in a real sketch, with so manyself-mockery.. He has already lent himself to informal meetings for the media, but there, he bends to a real scenario, it is an acting game, which inevitably recalls the little sketches in which Elizabeth II, the Queen of England, liked to participate. For example, with Paddington Bear during the festivities of his last jubilee”.
And of to specify: “If King Philippe lends himself to the game, because he is a real football fan, and he wanted to encourage the Red Devils.“
A shoot made just before the departure of the Devils
Filming took place within the royal palace last week and the final sequences were shot at Tubize just before the Devils boarded their plane to Qatar. “The King’s office had to be rearranged. It is his real office at the Palace that can be seen on the video. It has been redecorated with a host of football fan objects…“
And Amelie Schildt to let us in on a little “secret”. If you meet the king, don’t check his arms for his fan tattoo. “It’s not his arm, he called in an extra… But just for the forearm…“
For the rest, the King really had fun playing coach.
