In 1886 King Leopold II made a gift of racing pigeons to the British Royal Family.

I am new to this site, and would like any information about Prince Baudouin, elder brother of Albert, and the mystery surrounding his premature death. Also the rumours that he was having an affair with a Royal governess, and that he may possibly have died as a result of injuries sustained during a duel with his lovers husband
Thanks in advance

This are rumors.
He died from pneumonia as his grand mother Queen Louise Marie and his cousin Prince Leopold (10 years old).

In 1900 Leopold II founded the Royal Donation (Royal Trust).
He stipulated that grounds, castles and other buildings never could be sold to keep its original functions and to stay in the disposition of his successors.

More specifically, he handed over his properties to the trust (in other words, to the nation) so they would not be scattered among his daughters who were married to foreign princes.
