    Final preparations are underway in Belgium for Sunday's abdication of King Albert II.

    After 20 years on the throne, he is handing over the royal reigns to his eldest son Prince Philippe, on what is also National Day.

    Streets have been decked out with the colours of the national flag and shops are packed full of souvenirs - marking a memorable moment in the history of this nation.
