I'd expect a large royal turnout for Queen Fabiola and perhaps a few members of the Spanish Royal Family.

We can be sure about that.
And a large turnout from Luxembourg (the late Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte was a sister-in-law to Queen Fabiola) and from the northern neighbour, the Netherlands.

My expectations:

The King of Spain
Queen Letizia
King Juan Carlos
Queen Sofía

The Grand Duke of Luxembourg (nephew)
Grand Duchess María Teresa
Grand Duke Jean (brother-in-law)
Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume
Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie (a Belgian by birth)

The King of the Netherlands
Queen Máxima
Princess Beatrix

Wonder if they consider to hold the funeral on 15. December that day she became Queen of the Belgians in 1960.

King Harald of Norway was a 1st cousin of the late Baudouin through their two mothers, who were born Swedish princesses, so I think there may well be some royal representatives from Sweden and Norway at the funeral.

The Spanish RF might send King Juan Carlos & Queen Sofia,or Queen Sofia with the Infanta Elena,I'm not sure about Felipe VI & Letizia. Infanta Pilar and her sister Margarita could also attend.

What a sad loss of such a fine person.

Is it known who was at Queen Fabiola's side when she passed away?

The Madrid Memorial Mass for the late Duchess of Alba is taking place on that date and the SRF are expected to attend that,so I hope they pick another date.

I expect to see them too. I could be wrong but didn't Queen Elizabeth II attend King Baudouin's funeral. ?

Yes Her Majesty did attend the funeral of King Baudouin in 1993,I doubt however we'll see QEII at Queen Fabiola's funeral and the BRF could be represented by the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.

Who from Denmark, Monaco and Liechtenstein do you think will attend the funeral? And will former royals attend?

Prince Laurent was everything what Queen Fabiola was not. While the last one always and ever tried, together with her spouse, to represent the monarchy and the kingdom with the utmost dignity, with 'content' and high standards, Prince Laurent was more than once quite damaging to the monarchy, with his goofy adventures, his indiscretions, his sometimes discutable finances and even periods of pure obstruction. This was so diametrically against the worldview and framework of Queen Fabiola, born and raised as the daughter of an arch-Spanish aristocrat family, residing in an own palace in Madrid (Palacio de Zurbano) with dozens of servants.

Picture - the mother of the late Queen Fabiola, Doña Blanca de Aragón y Carrillo de Albornoz Barroeta-Aldamar y Elío, posing in the staircase of the Palacio de Zurbano: http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z...adeAragon1.jpg




In these days Queen Fabiola's ancestral home, the Palacio de Zurbano, is often used as a venue for meetings of the Spanish Government: http://ep00.epimg.net/diario/imagene...cia_normal.jpg

Do you remember that Queen Fabiola's brother was NOT invited at the Royal Wedding.
He was called Fabiolo...

Indeed, Don Jaime and Prince Laurent have surprisingly a lot in common... both were lightweight fools with no idea about how to make a life. Prince Laurent is totally dependent on the strength and wisdom of his formidable wife, Claire.

Not the Royal Court?

My guess is that we will see mainly the older generation from the reigning Royals like Princess Beatrix, King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia etc.
We can probably expect a large turnout of former reigning Royals like the Orleans, Bonapartes, plenty of Habsburg, the Savoys, the bavarian Royals etc.
