Queen Paola owns a house in Villers-sur-Lesse, 20 kilometers from Marche-en-Famenne. Perhaps they have been spending some days in this house in the Ardennes and wanted to visit the local market.

I think they stayed only a few minutes just for the pictures.
King Albert II suffers from skin cancer and may not stay long in the Sun without heavy protecton.

Skin cancer? That is new to me.

She seems to have recovered well to me. She uses a walking stick, but after all she is an 80-year-old lady; given her age, it is perfectly understandable, IMO.

She is still very beautiful and elegant, and she really seems to engage with the people around her.

Hopefully they found some Italian security guards if not their endless vacationing each year in Italy is rather expensive for the Belgian state.

The Abdication was a unexpected but was necessary.

We have now a real team . A king , A queen and 4 young Children who are going everywhere for glory or sad Events. A Royal Family among the belgian people who never did a faux pas.
We never had it since King Albert the First.
Concerning King Albert II he asked for more money for his private boat wich is in Italy. The Gouvernment of course refused.
He is well paid for what he is doing!

Though they are more of less retired from public life but they do spend a lot of time on 'holidays' in Italy.

That is Paola's native homeland, pretty logical they stay there in that beautiful country. I hope I can do the same when I am retired...

Queen Paola suffers a stroke last night.

"The Radio Télévision Belge Francophone (RTBF) is reporting that Her Majesty Queen Paola of Belgium suffered a stroke last night. She was vacationing in Venice with her husband, King Albert of Belgium. She will be flown back to Belgium via Melsbroek Airport this afternoon. There are no details on the severity of the stroke. She is 81 years old and has suffered from several health problems these last few years."

Oh dear, that's bad news!

Hopefully it's not as bad as it sounds and the quick and excellent medical treatment in Italy and Belgium will immediately help and lead to a full recovery!

It is not sure yet the Queen will be flown to Melsbroek Airbase, the palace still has not given a communiqué.


My very best wishes for the Queen.
