According to Royal Central:

…King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of the Belgians marked the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge alongside Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg…

The King addressed those in attendance… “The Battle of the Bulge was almost two months of intense fighting, hardship and suffering in the cold and snow. There were countless acts of bravery and heroism. The battle wreaked destruction and death. It resulted in even more civilian and military casualties than the Normandy landings. Belgium owes its final liberation from Nazi occupation to these brave soldiers.”
