But it was a small funeral with only the closest Family attending. There will be later a Requiem at the Theatinerchurch in Munich.
I stand corrected. I saw a picture on Twitter on Saturday and I just assumed it was on the same day.

Royal Central says Princess Astrid has fractured several vertebrae while exercising but hasn't had to stay in hospital. All good wishes for her recovery.

The princess will not need to stay in the hospital but on doctors orders she does need to rest. Several engagements have been postponed.

Prince Lorenz attended a mass to commemorate the death of King Baudouin:

Messe commémorative du décès du roi Baudouin – Noblesse & Royautés

The mass was also attended by Archduchess Rudolphe of Austria, Prince Guillaume, Pss Sybilla and Pss Marie-Astrid of Luxembourg and Archduke Carl-Christian.

Belgian media have reported that Princess Astrid has been caught speeding. Her car was pictured while driving 120 km/h instead of the allowed 90 km/h on the A3 motorway towards Brussels at the end of October. The speeding fine is 125 €.

I would not have been shocked if this news had related to her younger brother, but am taken aback that Princess Astrid, with her reputation for being dutiful, conservative, and discreet, violated the speed limit so dangerously. (And, while they are not responsible for one another's actions, the public will probably recall that her younger son also breached safety regulations when he skipped a mandatory quarantine to attend his girlfriend's birthday party.) A public apology and explanation is probably in order.

I don't think this will be considered big deal, more as something slighty amusing than anything else. Half of Belgium is getting speeding tickets, if not more. It does not help that the speed limit changes often. It is easy to miss a sign and stick to the speed that you had been driving at. Navigation sets in cars are not always aligned with new -sometimes temporary- speed limits either so they are not always much help. Normally for an A-numbered highway the regular speed would be 120 km per hour, which she was driving.

In Luxembourg it is worse btw, they change the max. speed on the road nearly every kilometer. And very shortly after the change there often follows a traffic camera, which leads to people standing on their brakes and to dangerous situations. In the Netherlands it was a mishmash of different speeds as well... the fate of small and densely populated countries with lots of roads perhaps and a good cash machine for the traffic police.

I would find 150 km per hour on a highway -also an excess of 30 km/h- more problematic as it is very clear that will not be allowed under any circumstances. In this case there can be multiple explanations for the fine.

Marengo, that sounds very likely. Although 125 EUR fine doesn't seem that much for speeding 30 km/h over the speed limit.

The traffic fines in the Netherlands are exceptionally high in comparison to Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Spain etc. At least that is my experience, not that I am getting tickets on a regular basis but over the years it does happen from time to time & usually not by purposly violiting traffic laws but due to unclarity or distraction.

It is nice to see HRH on an official engagement, which is rare these days. He has always been a dignified and discreet representative of the Royal House.

On October 27 Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz attended the inauguration of the exhibition "Japan’s Book Donation to the University of Louvain" organized by KU Leuven and UC Louvain at the main reading room of the university library of KU Leuven.

And they visited the non-profit support association "Les amis d’Accompagner" in Koekelberg:
