I am surprised that his casket was open. I can't recall another King or Queen having an open casket.

That wasn't during his funeral, but when people came to pay their last respects. It's always done like that in Belgium.

H.M. King Boudewijn had an open casket when the public could pay their last respects.

Prince Alexandre is the son of Leopold III from his second marriage to Lilian Baels. The couple also got two daughters: Marie-Christine and Marie-Esmeralda. That would make them all half siblings of the present King.

The Princess did not attend the funeral of her father. She was involved in a scandal and lived rather estranged from her family. The scandal was her ´escape´ to Canada and her marriage and divorce to/of Paul Drucker in 1981. The marriage lasted 5 months, the divorce took 5 years.
She heard the news of her fathers death from television. However she was allowed to see her fathers body the evening before the funeral, in private.

To her mothers funeral she sent a cat btw.
