It still belongs to queen Fabiola,but since she's a widow she doesn't wear a tiara anymore, she only made an exception for the Spanish state visit to Belgium in 2000.

She does have a nice collection (look here, but I don't know what will happen to it when she dies. I think in Belgium we should have a sort of "fund" like in Sweden and Holland where the jewels aren't private possesion, so nothing gets lost when someone dies. This has happened over and over again in the Belgian RF, which is why we have so little, compared to other countries.

On 30 July 2006, Queen Fabiola attended a mass to commemorate the 13th anniversary of the death of King Baudouin (Boudewijn) at the Brussels cathedral. Pictures from that event can be found here :

King Baudouin and queen Fabiola anounce Fabiola's first pregnancy, 1961, when they're at the vatican. Fabiola would loose the baby and have several miscarriages. They were never able to have children. (le soir illustré - thanks to Chris).

Thumbs up

I LOVE the photo of Q. Fabiola and Q. Sofia. The tiara Fabiola is wearing in that picture is actually the necklace that she is wearing in the yellow gown with K. Baudoin(sp), or at least it looks like the necklace. I'm going to to look at her jewelry.

Queen Fabiola, who was escorted by the most competent Donna Infanta Pilar, attended Brussels Audi International Jumping today.
Source: BELGA PHOTO DIRK WAEM, click here for more.

And she is really very fond of this event, since she visited the opening evening yesterday as well. (source:

Fabiola has been quite active today. Accompanied by Princess Mathilde she also paid a private visit to the Royal Museum for Art and History today. They admired the collection of Dora and Paul Janssen. The Janssen’s collected precolumbian art and their collection will now remain in Belgium since Dora Janssen reached an agreement with the Flemish government about the inheritance tax.

Wasn't Fabiola a sort of lady-in-waiting to Infanta Pilar? When they visited Queen Victoria-Eugenia in Switzerland Fabiola met her future husband for the first time...
