According to ' het belang van limburg' there will be extra security for Queen Fabiola again. Apparently she is still receiving death threats.

Also no Willem tell apple or anything of this kind this year. The royal security demanded her not to make jokes with her aggressor. A sad situation, especially since Fabiola is said to be fed up with the extra security. However, better be too careful than heading for a drama caused by a sick maniac.

Cool

Wonderful, thanks so much iceflower. Why these death threats against Queen Fabiola? She has never been controversial in her life and yet there is/are sick individuals that have to gain attention in a perverted fashion instead of doing something useful with his/hers/their lives. In addition, to threaten an elderly lady is cowardly.

Sometimes she's the lovely woman next door and then she's as
beautiful as today again, I think that makes her so special..


Here's a great gallery with many big pictures:

I've looked at all the previous threads, and I couldn't see pictures of them attending the mass in previous years. Unless the pictures were the ones I could not access, do they always attend?

Yes they always attend but in various cities. The King, Queen, Queen Fabiola and Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde go to Brussels every year.

Laurent and Claire and Astrid and Lorenz always go to other cities. This Year Hasselt and Aarlen.

Thanks for the photos!
It is nice to see Crown Princely couple interacting with people in the crowd and Queen Fabiola making a public appearance.
