Order of the Golden Fleece.
Prince Phillippe is a Knight of the Austrian Order of the Golden Fleece aswell.
I can find Grand Duke Henri on the list, and Prince Lorenz is not listed but has it. I cannot find if ArchDuke Carl-Christian has it.

Lumutqueen Thanks

Archidukes Lorenz and Carl- Christian are Knights of the Austrian Order by birth because they are from the Imperial and Royal House of the Habsbourgs.

Would it be wrong of me to note that Archduke Carl Christian's family is really very attractive... including now Count Rodolphe.

If you watch pictures of other funerals, you can notice that Philippe never wears black or totally black; for example, at the funeral of his father-in-law and of Prince Alexandre he wore a blue coat (but I think over a black suit).

Where was Léa sitting exactly?

MAfan , you are right but by respect for the Habsbourg , he should were black and his decoration as knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece.
For Princess Mathilde's father Count Henri's his funerals were private.
AGAIN , Prince Philippe was BAD informed and his cousins Luxembourg like usual were perfect.

Oh my God! This is a very sad new.
My condolences to his family and to his friends.

I perfectly agree with you, he should have worn a black morning dress and black necktie; I really can't understand why blue. I mean, one thing is, for example, Queen Fabiola wearing in white or light grey as she uses to do for attending funerals, because this has a precise meaning; but blue? And with a grey necktie with patterns!
(Mathilde please do something!)

Why does Fabiola wear white/light grey?
It is possible that he does not wish to wear black?
He should have worn the order though.

White was the colour of mourning of the Queens during Middle Age, and also wearing white during mourning was an old Spanish tradition.
It also has some religious meaning, to mark that earthly death is the beginning of the eternal life.

FYI: Princess Lea was seated in the front row next to the other royal guests. Seating order: Grand Duke Henri, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, Queen Fabiola, Prince Philippe, Princess Mathilde, Prince Lorenz, Princess Astrid and then Princess Lea.


As for Prince Philippe: he attended an important reception for businessmen prior to the funeral. And obviously there was no time left to change clothes. Seriously, the only thing one can accuse him of is that he didn’t change to a black tie. But he made a real effort to attend both functions and that’s what counts imo. I’m sure the Habsburgs appreciate it.

BTW is it for sure that Prince Philippe is a knight of the golden fleece? I always thought King Albert and Prince Lorenz are the only Belgian royals with this distinction.

Actually I had the absolutely same thought. Especially some of the pictures look quite unusual for funeral...

I thought the reason was something similar, and it makes sense, although...the date and place of the funeral was known at least since 18 May, 11 days before it took place, if he wanted he had all the time for thinking that grey if not black is a more suitable colour for a funeral than blue, for thinking to wear a black or grey suit all the day on 29 May and for thinking to bring with him a black tie and change it while going to the church...
Btw, I no longer want to be annoying with these details, I agree with you Mara when saying that what really counts is his presence .

Does anyone know what the green flag is in the background of the photo below? It is only a small view of the flag so it will be hard to identify. Yet I have never through of green as being a Habsburg color?

Fabiola is a fervent Roman Catholic, and in Christianity white is the liturgical color symbolizing the hope of the resurrection. That is why the stoles worn by priests during funerals (and Easter) are typically white.

Perhaps, they are smiling, because the deceased was 90 years old and had lead a long life and this is not a tragic occurrence, but a celebration of his long life.

No need to mourn one on the way to Paradise and as noted led a long full life. The Habsburgs have a deep and abiding faith. Go bless Her late Imperial and Royal Majesty Regina and His late Royal Highness Prince Rudolph.
