Archduke Carl Christian, Archduchess Marie Astrid and Archduchess Yolande of Austria attended too, as well as Princess Margaretha vuz Liechtenstein.
Did Prince Nikolaus vuz Liechtenstein attend the funeral? He often attends the events of the Belgian RF, and his wife was in Laeken this morning, but I don't have seen him in the pictures.

Princess Lea is a striking and elegant woman...very dignified always.

Dear Queen Fabiola, so frail but making a determined effort to be there even in the bad weather.

I wish Prince Laurent would lose some weight, that cannot be healthy for him. His wife is so pretty.

I just don't understand...how does one just drop dead suddenly of a pulmonary embolism?? Does anyone who knows something about this explain it to me please?

the website of VRT features this video and also an article with two clickable video's of the funeral.

Basically it says that the King, Queens, Princes Philippe & Laurent and their wives attended. Princess Léa and her children were seated on the first row. They also say Esmeralda and her family attended, but Marie Christine was nowhere to be found.

It's quite simple: you have a pulmonary embolism when you have something that block the blood flood in the main artery of the lung; the blocking substance can be air, fat, but mostly a blood clot.
The main problem with polmunary embolism is that it happens suddenly: the main symptoms show very suddenly, and are dyspnea, tachypnea, chest pain, hemoptysis, cyanosis, collapse and shock.
It seems that the 15% of all the sudden deaths due to cardiac death are caused by polmunary embolism.

Well, I am glad that Marie Christine managed to attend.

Thanks to all for the pictures. Poor Princess Lea looked so sad.

According to PPE it's either Marie Christine or Marie Esmeralda in this pic:

but I don't think it's either. As far as I remember, Marie Christine has a sharper face, and Esmeralda is not this old.

Plus, you can see Esmeralda in this pic:

and that doesn't seem to be the same lady to me.
