As head of state Filip will also becomes commander-in-chief of Belgium's armed forces.
It was Belgian Defence Minister Pieter De Crem who announced the news on independent television. The Defence Minister insisted that the appointment was not a hark back to the olden days and pointed to international meetings that the king would attend in his capacity of head of the Belgian armed forces.
Such meetings take place at the highest level and are attended by 4-star generals.
