I think this ceremony is "adults only"? I don't see Laetitia either.

BTW: Laurent got wet at the entrance to the cathedral and I saw him coughing later, hopefully he won't catch anything again

Yes that is the case. It would be to much for the children to also attend this ceremony, the actual one was already tough.

On twitter some tweets are saying that Prince Laurent might have been driven back to the Palace of Laeken to "welcome" the foreign royals.

BTW: A fake twitter account named "Koningin Fabiola" had made a very funny tweet. (Delete this section if you mean that it is not right for a funeral): "Is dat hier bijna afgelopen? Ik moet om 14u met Moeder Teresa naar de zumba."

The answer twittered for Mother Theresa is: "Zumba? Als gij pingpong met bier zumba noemt."

I apologize for asking, but I couldn't see the entire funeral mass. Does anyone know if it is already available online in a non-live feed ?

Thank you very much.

What a wonderful ceremony! And how sad was Queen Mathilde, apparently they should have a strong bound.
A question, sorry if it has been answered. Why the coufin was recovered with the german flag? (or whatever was this flag, as it was neither the belgiym not the spanish flag)

It is our Belgian flag :) Only because the colours are horizontal, they can be mistaken with the German one. But those colours are in a different order.

The funeral was very moving. I feel sorry for Philippe and Mathilde, they were very close to Queen Fabiola.
