Frankly, in my view up until now, the ones to blame for this issue getting out of hand where Q.Fabiola's advisors and her PR-people; imo they should have known how to handle this gracefully and without causing the confusion it has caused.

Episcogal, you are doing the queen no favor in ranting against the belgian people and us on this forum; it only makes me wonder if she has overruled her advisors advices...

There is a fundamental gap in philosophy here. Fabiola is "guilty" of a fraud, which isn't against any laws.

The only thing I have to say to that is a Louis Armstrong quote: "There's some folks, that, if they don't know, you can't tell 'em."

An Ard Ri , you did my day. Only 3 years after her wedding Queen Fabiola was already a perfect Queen. Grateful thanks.
Sorry we did not hear the God Save the Queen in the first video !

As an American, the only time I have ever wished we had a king and queen is when I look at old newsreel and photographs of Baudouin and Fabiola. What a classy, beautiful, dedicated Royal couple. The Belgians were very lucky to have them.

Thanks, An Ard Ri!

You'd never guess by my avatar that Baudouin & Fabiola are one of my all time favourite royal couples!

They are one of my top two or three. They restore my faith in the idea of soulmates and true love. You hear those phrases thrown around so often they have almost lost their impact.

But Baudouin and Fabiola were what we call the Real Thing.
Thanks for all the lovely, nostalgic newsreels.

Me too, you can guess with my avatar that Baudoin and Fabiola are one of my favorite royal couple.

I began to read all on the couple since their wedding I was a young girl who was 12 and I am very pleased when I can read some photos of the couple

Thank you for the news reel clips. The 1961 mud slide reel is new to me. Fabiola's birthday is June 11th, so perhaps we will see a new picture. I hope so.

Does anyone know how it goes with Queen Fabiola? I'm not so into the Belgian Royal Family, so I hope someone can answer this.

She seems to have gone into complete seclusion, not even an appearance on her birthday like she used to. It's sad. I miss seeing that wonderful lady.
