Castle Ciergnon, Houyet

The Belgian RF also ownes the castle of Ciergnon in the belgian ardennes. It used to be their hunting residence. Now the family goes their often on weekends.



There's also a chapel on the domaine of the castle, that the RF uses. Princess Elisabeth and prince Gabriel were baptised there.

It was interesting to learn that Ciergnon Castle was the location where Fabiola was presented to the press upon her engagement to King Baudouin in 1960.
A grand castle setting for a grand Queen-to-be!!
