FILE - In this Friday, Dec. 12, 2014 file photo, Belgium's King Albert II and Queen Paola attend the funeral service of Belgian Queen Fabiola at the Church of Our Lady of Laeken, in Brussels. While the announcement on Thursday, May 4, 2017 of Britain’s Prince Philip’s plan to retire in the fall came as a surprise, for some of the world’s royal families easing out of the public eye is seen as a normal way of ending their public service and handing the reins to a new generation. For others, being a royal really is a job for life. Belgium’s King Albert abdicated in July 2013 for what he said were health reasons, handing over the reins to his son Philippe, who became the country’s seventh monarch.
