Queen Paola Breaks Hip In Fall, To Undergo Surgery

  February 16, 2017 at 11:27 am by

79-year-old Queen Paola has broken her hip in a nasty fall at her home, Belvédère Castle, the Belgian Royal Court said in a statement released today.

The Queen will undergo surgery to fix the break on Friday at the Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc in Brussels. She will require several months of rehabilitation, the Court has said.

Queen Paola suffered a spinal fracture at the end of December when she took another fall. Prior to that, she had been hospitalised in September 2015 for an undisclosed matter.

King Albert will no longer attend tomorrow’s remembrance mass at the Church of Our Lady in Laeken as a result of his wife’s injury.
