The organisation committee of the 2005 Junior Eurovision Song Contest officially invited the Belgian royal family to attend the music festival on 26th November. Ludo Porrez, executive producer of the contest, informed eurosong.be.
When the 1987 Eurovision Song Contest took place in Belgium, the royal family was represented by Prince Albert, the current monarch, and Princess Paola. “We've send an official invitation to the royal family, but we didn't receive a reply yet”, Porrez said.
It's more or less expected Crown Prince Filip and Princess Mathilde will attend the live show.
The 2005 Junior Eurovision Song Contest takes place on 26th November in Hasselt, Belgium, where the Ethias Arena will host the live event. 16 instead of 17 countries participate, as Cyprus withdrew last Thursday.
