King Baudouin should be 80 years old to-day

The late King Baudouin should be 80 years old to-day . He was Astrid's second child.
He was born on 7 september 1930 .. Belgium celebrate that year its 100 years. he was cold "le Prince du Centenaire"
His wife , Queen Fabiola was 3 years older.
He still remains in the minds of all the Belgians.
How sorry he would have been with our so difficult politic problems.

Yes, it was very sad that the King was taken when he was still young and his beloved Fabiola was without him.

I am fairly certain that Fabiola was two years older than her husband, not three.

When Baudouin died suddenly on July 31, 1993 he was 62 yrs old...just about six weeks shy of his 63rd birthday.

He was a wonderful King and an exemplary human being, from what I have read.
