The visit was cut short due to a real accident at sea
This (planned) visit to the rescue teams and the volunteers had to be cut short as on that same morning a sailing yacht got into trouble and the crew was thrown overboard. Two people drowned but the others were rescued thanks to helicopters and assisting boats & the rescue teams from the beach!
All people available on the beach stepped in immediately and the royals left earlier than planned.
The survivors of the boat accident are all in hospital btw. http://www.lesoir.be/102554/article/2017-07-01/la-famille-royale-en-excursion-la-cote-belge-photos
