Balduine and Fabiola had yet passed to the eternity like a example of couple, an example of loveling couple. From here in Spain, we are so proud of Fabiola. She is, like also Balduine, the essence of Majesty.

i have red that Spanish Royal Family had planned married the Infanta Pilar with Balduine and was prepared a meet with him. Queen Victoria Eugene tolk with Pilar before the met and advise her go with two or three discreet ladys, and one of them were Fabiola.

Iread that story too Pelayo, they met in geneva I think, at the villa of Queen Ena. Other stories say that there was a nun from Ireland that brought the two together.

Veronica O'Brien was not a nun, but she founded Legion of Mary in France.

I have about five books on the Royal couple, and all of them refer to Veronica O' Brien as a nun. She was introduced to the young King in March 1960 by Leo Josef Suenens, Cardinal of Belgium.

The Royal couple kept a holiday home in Andalucia, southern Spain. It was named Villa Astrida. King Baudouin thought of Spain as his adopted country and Queen Fabiola thought of Belgium as HER adopted country.

They are unique among Royal couples for the steadfast love and devotion they displayed toward one another and to the Belgians, despite many heartaches and setbacks. I have never read even one rumor of infidelity or scandal attached to them.

I know that there is no such thing as a perfect marriage but Baudouin and Fabiola came as close to having that as any couple I have ever heard of, Royal or otherwise.

You're right, it's my error. However, the Legion of Mary is a laic association.

I should like to see more pictures of the pre-wedding. We saw only the RF of Norway and Italy. It was the only evening we saw such a lot of tiaras in Belgium..
On this day Paola received from Leopold III her tiara.. she wore is at the first time as Princesse de Liege.
