Oh dear, I hope Paola recovers soon and that it wasn't too serious.

I am not bashing Italy in any way, I'm merely saying that she would have a preferential treatment in Belgium that she wouldn't get in Italy, simply for the fact that she's a member of the Royal Family, nothing about the quality of healthcare in either country.

I would actually prefer if you don't interact with me since you seem to misunderstand/misuse my words all the time. Thank you.

I hope Paola bounces back quickly, even if it was a minor stroke, things like that aren't that simple at her age.

Good news! Queen Paola has left the hospital in Brussels today!

The Palace confirmed that Queen Paola had "had a mild stroke."

"Her Majesty Queen Paola had a mild stroke. She quickly recovered all her faculties spontaneously and probably will not preserve any sequelae of this brief incident." She has been allowed to leave the hospital and will have to continue to take "appropriate preventive medication that will effectively protect her from further recurrence."

This is indeed very good news. I have criticized these two in the past but I don't doubt how devoted they are.

They would be completely lost without one another.

Great to hear that Paola has been discharged. I hope she continues to do well.

I am surprised with your remark. I can not imagine that when Prince Philip, Prince Henrik or Princess Beatrix were in hospital, people would make remarks about the costs.That the Queen is transported with an aeroplane: of course. Ordinary Belgians are also transported with special flights if needed and we can not expect Queen Paola, King Albert and the whole escort in a full comnercial Air Italia plane to Brussels. Come on.
As a Belgian, I completely agree with you !

Very good news, she has to take it easy for the next days, maybe don't put herself through the ordeal of traveling, which is tiresome even if it is close and in private planes.

So she could go to this concert but not to the King's Feast two weeks ago.
Interesting, to say the least...

Nice to see King Albert and Queen Paola. The King looks frail, the Queen seems to have improved. She is still a beautiful lady. I wish them well.

The Queen is recovering from a stroke. It is widely known that this period of recuperation comes with setbacks, with good and bad days. Possibly Queen Paola felt good enough to attend a concert in the framework of her Foundation. Good for her and nice for her Foundation to see their lady patroness.

They have to justify their high Dotation as they are mostly living out of Belgium.
