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.
Lady Leana
The first picture is that of Margrethe of Liechtenstein, born Princess of Luxenburg.

So Marie Christine wasn't there, and PPE clearly needs to get it's sources straight then

It seems that the 15% of all the sudden deaths due to cardiac death are caused by polmunary embolism.
Thanks MAfan, that's a very thorough explanation...I guess his history of heart problems could have been a factor. So sad.

I could not find her in any of the pictures. She did not attend her parents' funerals and she has been estranged for so long it would have been strange if she did show up.

It is really lovely to see Queen Paola lending support to Princess Lea. I hope that his family is able to find comfort and peace.

You're welcome, CaliforniaDreamin!
I'm not sure about it, but it's possible that the cardiac malformation, or better its consequences, since the malformation was solved in 1957, have somehow influenced the rise of the embolism.
But I'm not sure, I'm not a medician...

Just after Princess Mathilde on the left Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein (brown hair) and on the right her sister Archiduchess Marie Astrid (blond hair).
On one of the flowers was written DAPHNE , it is Princess Marie-Christine second surname.
I was glad to see outside the church next to Princess Lea , Princess Marie Esmeralda with her two children ( Princess Lilian's only grandchildren)

No, Prince Alexandre did not have any children of his own. But Princess Léa has two children from her previous marriages. Her daughter read a beautiful poem about love in the church. Apparently it was his favourite. It was in Dutch.

the children are grown up now. Her daughter was born in 1976, her son in 1983. I'm not sure if they live with their mother.

Laetitia is married, so I don't think she still lives with Lea.

To send flowers is the minimum Marie Christine could do...

The photos were very touching and it is so sad to see the pain etched on Princess Lea's face. What a lovely thing for Prince Alexandre's step-daughter to read a poem.

I was just curious as to the funeral custom in Belgium. In the video the prince's coffin appears to be placed on the floor. Is this the custom? I don't mean to offend anyone its just that any funeral I have been to the coffin rests on a raised stand.

"Daphne" is actually Marie-Christine's nickname, it's not part of her Christian name.

And I am relieved to read that she at least sent flowers. I wish I knew the root of such hard feelings that would keep her away from her family at such a sad time......

According to Wikipedia (not an impeccable source, but one that I trust on this matter), Daphné is neither a surname nor a nickname of Princess Marie-Christine, but rather it is one of her given Christian names: Marie-Christine Daphné Astrid Elisabeth Léopoldine.

(Maria-Olivia, in case there is a misunderstanding due to language differences: in English, the word "surname" means "family name." The French equivalent would be "nom de famille", not "prénom").

AFAIK Princess Marie-Christine is referred to as Daphne in the family, I w\have read it in everal books, articles etc .

Nice to see that prince Alexandre has the funeral mas in the royal cathedral of Leaken and that he will be burried in the royal crypt. The children of princess Lilian were neve r'full' princes of Belgium (no HRH and no succession rights).

I saw the clip of the VRT news and I feel for princess Léa, she looked devastated.

They were Royal Highnesses, but they had no succession rights (or at least they were considered as having no succession rights, as far as I know it is not clair, since legally nothing barred them to have succession rights)
