I am so pleased to see Queen Fabiola well and out again after her bout with pneumonia! I offer my prayers and wishes for HM's continued good health.

She looks pretty well, too, considering that long illness. And as often in royal blue...

She and Margaretha are very close, Margaretha is one of her nieces, they often do things together.

It is nice to see Queen Fabiola making public appearances. She looks frail though.

Yes, Fabiola is the one who took care of her after she lost her first baby.

(Although I don't think it was actually a miscarriage, I think a living child was born very early and died within 24 hours.)

Sadly, the stillbirth of baby Prince Leopold was Margaretha's SECOND tragedy...her first pregnancy was a miscarriage.

I read this in Queen Fabiola's biography "La Reine Blance" by Guy Michelland.

Okay, thanks. So that's why I'm confused - she had both a miscarriage and a stillbirth. That's so sad!

Hi Maura, actually I made a mistake...Prince Leo was born alive and died two days later. Poor baby. He is buried in Brussels in the Royal Crypt, I believe.

Prince Leopold Emmanuel died the same day of his birth, on 20 may 1984.

There is a memorial mass in honor of King Baudouin at Notre Dame de Laeken in Brussels planned for 31 July:

Messe en hommage au Roi Baudouin | Noblesse & Royautés
(in French)
It says that Queen Fabiola is traditionally present at the memorial masses for the late king.

yes, this happens every year at the anniversary of his death, at special request of Queen Fabiola. The Queen is always there, and usually others of the family attend as well.

I hope that this year is no exception for Queen Fabiola. It was delightful to see her with the apple on National Day!

Queen Fabiola did attend the mass, she was in a wheelchair, according to the Palace because of a severe fatigue.

LadyLeana,
Did you noticed how our beloved Queen Fabiola, sitting for the first time in a rolling chair, changed in 10 days.. It it the first time than I saw her so sad and so weak. She will leave Belgium for her big house in Motril/Spain called Astrida and I hope she will be better in september..
