UK?
Netherlands?
Spain?
Japan Empress Michiko.
Norway King Harald V and Princess Astrid.
Denmark Queen Margrethe II.
Sweden King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia.
Luxembourg Grand Duke Henri, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, Grand Duke Jean, Guillaume, Stephanie and other members of the family.
Belgian Newspapers stated as official that princess Beatrix would come, as well as King Felipe with his mother Queen Sofia. Strange that it is not confirmed if they write it (it's on the paper version, not even on their website)

It's gorgeous but is that a current cover?? It reads "Farewell to a legendary Queen" but the rest of the cover is discussing royals who have passed on....also the format is old.

It says that it is the number of 10-16 december 2014 on the left. It also talks about the state visit of the king and queen of Sweden to France, which was last week.

Los reyes Felipe y Letizia y la reina Sofía asistirán al funeral de la reina Fabiola de Bélgica
Given the fact, that she was Spanish, this is a great move to Show "multiple presence"

This article says that King Juan Carlos will attend together with Queen Sofia, while another article says that King Felipe, Queen Letizia and Queen Sofia will attend.

I have a ?
In Belgium, is it customary to leave the coffin open? Don't mean to offend anybody, but to me, that's gross.

I just saw a pic of QF open casket, and it was a little frightening!
@ Maria Olivia- I hope you don't mind my asking, but why were you invited?

The funerals that I often went to, all of them had the coffin open, well here in Portugal, I don't know about Belgium. Maybe it's a catholic thing? Tradition? Can't tell.

Not only in Belgium or Portugal. Every time I went to offer condoleances the coffin was open, at least the upper part. And most times I went to protestant or non-religious funerals in The Netherlands.

I don't understand what is so 'gross' about it. Death is part of life and it is a matter of respect to say farewell in such a way.

Gross was probably the wrong word- just couldn't think of the right one!

Is that the first we've heard of something happening on the Thursday? None of the other foreign royal seem to be attending that (unless they've just not made it public).

Just read that she left all her possessions to a charity she set up when she married. So does that mean jewelry too? Do we think that there is any chance she gave some of it away before she died?

According to the official website of the UK Royal Family, both the Prince of Walees & the Princess Royal have engagements on Friday. With Charles otherwise engaged, it would seem likely that the Duke of Edinburgh may represent the Queen, his health permitting.
