The letter is addressed to King Filip. The anonymous author utters threats to abduct Filip and Mathilde's oldest daughter, Princess Elisabeth. The 12-year-old is poised to become Belgium's first Queen of the Belgians at a later stage, as she is the first in the line of succession to the Belgian throne. "I am going to abduct Princess Elisabeth. This is not a joke."
Police are taking the threats seriously, Het Laatste Nieuws reports. They have installed 3 police cars at the Sint-Jan-Berchmanscollege, Elisabeth's school in Brussels, to keep an eye on things. The anti-terror unit OCAD is also involved.
In the letter, the author brings a racist message, lashing out at Muslims and North-Africans in particular. They are taking advantage of Belgium and mean an extra cost of 30 billion euros each year, the author estimates, before addressing the king: "You and your government are doing nothing about this." The man shows clear nazi sympathies in his letter, different sources report.
