It is logic that the Minister of the Interior is responsible for logistic and organisatoric assistance to a public event. The funeral itself looks like a responsible of the Court, I think.

This is a sad occurrence but. Not exactly a surprise. Don't you think a plan for her funeral already exists? And one for Albert and Paola too

I think there is a standard blueprint indeed. All royal funerals were executioned perfectly and I think this will not be different with Queen Fabiola. It is ironic that a prominent politician from the separatist N-VA (New Flemish Alliance) whom is openly anti-monarchistic and anti-Belgicist has now the responsibility for a royal funeral...

Most likely it will please His Majesty The King to award this very republican politician, the Minister of the Interior, with an Order of Merit later this year, for the organization of the funeral...

Carl Gustaf and Silvia was very close to Baudouin and Fabiola so i think they will attend. They hade an activity on December 12 but it looks like it have been rescheduled to December 10 so i think they are planning to attend.

As you say she was by marriage very close related to the Norwegian King and his sisters. I think both Harald and Astrid or at least one of them will be in attendance.

The remains of the late Queen Fabiola will stay at her residence, the Château du Stuyvenberg. On Monday morning the Queen will be brought to the Chapel Royal of the Château de Laeken.

On Tuesday afternoon the late Queen Fabiola will be transported from the Château de Laeken to the Palais Royal in Brussels. On Wednesday and Thursday the public will be given access to the palace, to greet the Queen.

On Friday the Funeral Mass will be held in the Cathédrale Saints-Michel-et-Gudule de Bruxelles. Afterwards the late Queen will be interred in the royal crypt, which is inside the Église Notre-Dame de Laeken.

Until the Funeral, all public activities of the royal family have been suspended.

Members of the Princely Family of Ligne will certainly attend, as King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola were close to the late 13th Prince and his wife, Princess Alix of Luxembourg - they were related by marriage anyway.

I don't know if the Dowager Princess will be able to attend, the last time I saw her was at the wedding of the Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg - were she sat with Grand Duke Jean and Queen Fabiola - and she was looking so frail.

But I'm sure the 14th Prince and Princess Eleonora will go to the funeral, maybe even Prince Antonio and Princess Christine, as they alway met with the Belgian Royal when they visit Brazil.

Duc et Pair,
Our anti Monarchistic Minister of Interior will not receive the Order of the Merite but the Order of Leopold (our first King) of our the second Order : the Crown Order.

Belgian Royal Palace ‏@MonarchieBe Funérailles de SM la Reine Fabiola le vendredi 12 décembre '14 à 10h à la cathédrale des Saints Michel et Gudule à Bruxelles.

Then definitely Their Majesties' visit to Vatican has been postponed to allow them to be present at the funeral

Well... the Royal Decree concerning the granting of an Order to M Johan Jambon, Ministre fédéral de la Sécurité et de l'Intérieur, has to be contraseigned by.... M Johan Jambon.... Most likely he will refuse to sign that Royal Decree, so he will not be "humiliated" with a royal order...

Precisely. If her late Majesty's funeral is going to be a semi-state funeral, QEII will send the most senior representative available. In ordinary circumstances that would be the duke of Edinburgh, but of course with his advanced age that is out of the question. QEII had the utmost respect and affection for Baudouin and Fabiola. The Belgian Royal couple were once photographed on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with the BRF.

The Royal families of Lichtenstein and Luxembourg are family to the late queen and will send the largest delegations, along with Fabiola's native Spain. It will be interesting to see who Albert II of Monaco will send. His own mother Princess Grace enjoyed a warm friendship with Fabiola, but with Princess Charlene's confinement imminent I am not sure Albert will leave her side. Maybe Princess Caroline will go instead?

You are free in your opinions about politicians and royals (P.Laurent, Q.Fabiola's brother), but is this the right thread to express these opinions?
Imo it should be dedicated to Q.Fabiola and the events of the next days

I believe he was responding to questions and comments on the relationships within the families.

Don't think the age of the Duke of Edinburgh will be a problem if he wants to and feel he can do it. If Philip wants to do something, he does no matter what others tell him 😉
