So Queens Elisabeth and Astrid didn´ t wear sashes?! That´ s weird...!
I think in having done so, Belgium was the only european country.


I guess the reason why Paola never publicly wore her belgian order is that there was never a state visit during her husband´ s reign where no orders of the visiting guest of state had been handed out.

But she also didn't use it oin her official Gala pics as Queen. Queen Mathilde wore it when her official picture was taken.

I know. Still she is a holder of this most prestigious belgian order as I learnt when Philippe got married and all the decorations of Albert and Paola were enumerated during the civil marriage act in the town hall.
