COLOGNE, Germany (AP) — Euro 2024 is becoming a very regal affair after the king and queen of Belgium became the latest royals to attend the soccer tournament in Germany.

King Philippe and Queen Mathilde were in the crowd for Belgium's group game against Romania on Saturday. They were joined by Prince Emmanuel and Prince Gabriel.

On Thursday, it was the future king of England, Prince William, and Denmark's King Frederik X who were in attendance and shook hands ahead of their respective nations' 1-1 draw in Frankfurt.

On the same day, King Felipe VI of Spain watched his national team beat Italy 1-0.

King Philippe and the princes all wore dark suits, while Queen Mathilde wore a red dress. All had Belgium scarves draped over their shoulders.

They didn't have to wait long to see their team score after Youri Tielemans' goal in the second minute.
