Belgium's King Albert in Bulgaria for New Year
Wed Dec 31, 8:37 AM ET

SOFIA (AFP) - Belgian King Albert II and his wife Queen Paula will see in the New Year in Bulgaria's Borovetz ski resort, in the company of Bulgaria's former king and current prime minister, Simeon Saxe-Coburg.

The prime minister and his wife will host the Belgian royals in a former royal residence in the southwestern mountain resort, officials here said.

Saxe-Coburg, a former monarch of Bulgaria, is a relative of Belgium's King Albert and England's Queen Elizabeth. He returned to his country after the fall of communism, ending 55 years in exile, and won legislative elections there in 2001.

From Hello!


The largest ski resort in Bulgaria had some royal visitors over the New Year, as the king and queen of Belgium spent a three-day private visit with Prime Minister Simeon Saxe-Coburg.

King Albert II and Queen Paola were guests of the premier – who is the country's former monarch and a relative of the couple – and his wife, Margarita Gomez-Acebo y Cejuela. The foursome spent the special occasion at a former royal residence in the Borovetz ski resort, which is located in the Rila mountains.

While staying at the winter sports hotspot, the royal pair also had time to take in some of the historical landmarks in the region, including the medieval Rila monastery. The monastery, located about 120 kilometres south of Sofia, is also the location where the prime minister's father, the late King Boris III, is buried.

The 10th-century building, which was rebuilt between 1834 and 1862 after being destroyed by fire, is a UNESCO World Heritage site renowned as a symbol of the 19th-century Bulgarian Renaissance.

Just a reminder to not post images directly to the forum but rather as links. Images, no matter how small, affect our bandwidth and I think we can all agree that we don't want to face another temporary shutdown because of bandwidth issues.

Thank you.
