    We recognize Prince Charles, Count of Flanders, Prince of Belgium brother of King leopold III (00:29) and Cardinal Van Roey in this video. (00:49)
    Prince Charles was appointed Regent when the German occupation ended in 1944.
    I presume this film is from the inauguration of Prince Charles in sep. 1944
    Other people in this video are members of the belgian government.
