King Philippe, queen Mathilde and their children spent the Whitsun weekend at the castle of Ciergnon.
When 4 of their body guards went to the nearby town of Rochefort in their free time, they got involved in a streetbrawl. The trigger for the violence was an exchange between one of the body guards and a youth that was allegedly drunk. The young man called for reinforcement from his friends. Two of the body guards were severely wounded and are being treated in hospital. Their lives are not in danger.
Court denies any provocation by the bodyguards, all police officers from the Federal Police Royal Protection Corps, or any links to the royal family. Crime reports have been drafted and the Namur Judicial Authorities have opened an investigation.
